In this video Marco Cattaneo discusses the 7 key processes used in PRINCE2.
As PRINCE2 is a process based approach to project management, understanding the processes is vital to using PRINCE2 successfully.
The seven processes are:
Starting up a Project
Starting a Project ensures that the pre-requisites for a project are in place by asking: do we have a worthwhile and viable project?
Directing a Project
Directing a Project enables the project board to be accountable for a project’s success. They will exercise control of the project and make the key decisions, whilst day to day management of the project is delegated to the project manager.
Initiating a Project
Initiating a Project establishes the projects foundations, looking at the scope of the project and the work required for successful delivery.
Controlling a Stage
Controlling a Stage is where the work to be done is assigned, monitored and issues dealt with. Progress is reported to the project board and if necessary corrective action is taken so the stage remains within the agreed boundaries.
Managing Product Delivery
Managing Product Delivery controls the relationship between the project manager and team manager/s by who will carry out the work required.
Managing a Stage Boundary
Managing a Stage Boundary is where the success of the current stage of a project is assessed and the next stage approved.
Closing a Project
Closing a Project recognises that the objectives of a project have been achieved (or not).
