Benefits of using PRINCE…
PRINCE provides benefits to the managers and directors of a project and to an organization, through the controllable use of resources and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively.

PRINCE encourages formal recognition of responsibilities within a project and focuses on what a project is to deliver, why, when and for whom. PRINCE provides projects with:

  • A controlled and organized start, middle and end
  • Regular reviews of progress against plan and against the Business Case flexible decision points
  • Automatic management control of any deviations from the plan
  • The involvement of management and stakeholders at the right time and place during the project
  • Good communication channels between the project, project management, and the rest of the organization.

Managers using PRINCE are able to…

  • Establish terms of reference as a pre-requisite to the start of a project
  • Use a defined structure for delegation, authority and communication
  • Divide the project into manageable stages for more accurate planning
  • Ensure resource commitment from management is part of any approval to proceed
  • Provide regular but brief management reports

  • Participate in all the decision-making on a project
  • If desired, be fully involved in day-to-day progress
  • Provide quality checks throughout the project and ensure their requirements are being adequately satisfied.
