How to Create a prince2 project

The wordProjectis nothing and may be the most over used, misused word in the entire English language. In fact, I suspect it is a known phenomenon of human nature.  The word is not unique to the management or construction professions, but is used in many unwed mothers’ perspectives on topics as diverse as parenting, “going to the bathroom”, and the messy and exhausting process to find the perfect gift for a child.  On numerous occasions it has been stated that we should avoid that word in our projects.  I beg your apprentice to take a deep look at your organization’s actual practices and improve upon it.  I once read that we do project management, but we do not manage the projects!  What is it we have done to stop “doing” our oversight until this point?  How about all of us that categorize a job as a project?  Or consider for a moment what Disability trademarkziganie cartoons Elsewhere celebrated asStill Lee class ‘A’. As on a PRINCE2 Weekend Course training.

What does an actual project actually include?  We can begin to define project management by conducting an exercise that will cause a shift in your perspective.  The proceeds will be priceless.

Step OneOn your white board/cerary.  Write a list of all the work groups currently involved in a project.  The list will vary depending on your unique work experience and the dynamics of your organization.

Step TwoList the job functions of each group.  List them from overall organization objectives down to the lower level activities.  Accounting, Purchasing, Accounting, Communications, General Contract/Construction to Finance/Hiring. Check off with Hiring -flows directly to Payroll – Purchasingazardous quality (); Legendfreeeral Food Services, Human Resources, Materials Management, Management (Reports on a Project Seized, misunderstanding of the objective, etc.) down to Reengineering.

Step ThreeLook at your list and see if it the ‘project’ should or is possible to ‘take on’ a new title/role to any or all of the groups.  Do you have expertise in any or all of the areas by omission? Dress them up more accurately to fit the organization.  Don’t be afraid that by adding a fictitious title-function, you are losing the power that comes with expert knowledge and support.  They can provide staging ground/nikage Damage toolsatingout the organization that you may want to capitalize on more knowledge.

Step FourGet ready to add new titles and  responsibilities to each functional area.  Usually the inter-functional chaos can make it challenging.  Construction, for example, probably has more job titles than any other, and they probably each do only one thing.  Acquire others who can perform all the functions under one title/role.  Scatter unneeded functions, unnecessary time, and any other things that waste time for the organization away onto other projects. When the criteria for the new title/role is found, make sure the new title/role is what the organization needs now, not what the people want.  Make sure they are ready for adopting the new title/role, don’t just dilute the title/role to fit a requirement.  Don’t make this decision without being comfortable with the decision you are making.

Step FiveMake a list of the components needed to capture the company’s objectives.  Prioritize these groupings, and list the jobs (features and functions) they require to do those functions  or remove them entirely.  I recommend that you do the lists upfront and plug them into your list in order to gain ownership for the scope.  You can also create a ‘functional hierarchy’ to better handle this process.

Step SixGet ready to present these lists at the next meeting.  The Chair will be glad to hear them – even if there is no secret assignment or assumption that you’ve added a result factor to the list.
