Scenarios crafted to depict the application of a best practice methodology such as PRINCE2 in real-world situations go beyond presenting an idealized view of projects in action.
While the concept of scenarios isn’t entirely novel, recent iterations have been developed to align more closely with the diverse range of projects undertaken by organizations, both in the private and public sectors. These scenarios can be likened to stories that not only add vibrancy to the learning experience but also alleviate apprehensions for those new or inexperienced in project management.
In the latest version of PRINCE2, scenarios have been incorporated to convey the collective expertise of the authors, aiming to guide project managers in understanding how theoretical principles translate into practical application. Rooted in real-world experiences, these scenarios elucidate the application of different concepts, providing a genuine reflection of theory in action.
Recognizing that every company and project is different
Recognizing the diverse realities and project stages within different companies, the scenarios have been thoughtfully chosen to provide a comprehensive learning foundation. They take into account the varying states of company maturity and illustrate how project progression and planning are influenced by these factors.
These scenarios extend their scope to encompass different sectors, showcasing how PRINCE2 7 can be effectively applied to address industry-specific nuances, including regulatory obligations. Additionally, they explore the diverse outcomes and benefits that projects may yield, ranging from financial gains for shareholder-driven companies to societal value for NGOs.
The value of the new scenarios lies in their ability to offer perspective to projects and their management. While PRINCE2 encompasses universal principles, it acknowledges the absence of universal projects—each project is unique and demands distinct approaches. By utilizing scenarios that mirror the current business landscape, these scenarios demonstrate how frameworks like Agile or DevOps can be integrated seamlessly with PRINCE2 7.
A versatile toolkit for every occasion
Essentially, the scenarios underscore for project managers that PRINCE2 7 is a versatile toolkit they can depend on to determine the most suitable approach for project delivery. Regardless of the complexity, scale, or maturity of an organization, PRINCE2 7 can be employed and customized to address upcoming challenges, align with the business culture, and adapt to the organizational structure.
Above all, I believe the scenarios will provide clarity and assist project managers in defining the value they can contribute to both a project and an organization. Their expertise lies in coordinating the various components while also offering perspective and aiding teams in addressing questions such as: When is the optimal time to delegate tasks? What trade-offs are acceptable to meet sustainability goals? How should a team be structured? What are the most reasonable planning horizons? How crucial is quality? What is the optimal way to delineate roles and responsibilities?
This presents an exciting opportunity. With the latest version of PRINCE2, project managers can glean insights from those experienced in integrating best practices, become confident advocates for such practices, and ultimately deliver positive outcomes.
