Using PRINCE2 with Microsoft Project

There’s no doubt about it – successful projects need a framework to deliver on time and budget – and that is PRINCE2.

Trouble is, PRINCE2 does not include any tools to plan, monitor, take corrective action, report and control. That’s where Microsoft Project comes in …

But that is not the full picture because straight out of the box, MS Project is a blank canvas that first needs to be TAILORED and ‘plumbed into’ PRINCE2

See, PRINCE2 has lots of great processes and techniques built in but not a single idea about how to harness the power of MS Project.

And that is where I can help.

I took these superb elements of PRINCE2:

  • The Seven PRINCE2 Processes
  • Key Management Products
  • Management By Exception
  • Management Stages
  • End Stage Assessments
  • Exception Assessments
  • Product-based Planning
  • Quality Checks and Reviews
  • Specialist Product Descriptions
  • Time and Event-driven Reporting
  • Work Packages

…and came up with a BLENDED set of MS Project Files

Already locked and loaded for you

No problem. Just load up my MS Project Templates and edit them in real time during your project planning.

Build all of the above elements into your Project and Stage Plans (Yes, you even got a Stage Plan Template), get your PID approved and you are immediately into Delivery Stage management mode with the power of MS Project at your side…

Okay, so if you know little about using MS Project, I can fix that too. My MS Project Primer takes you from novice to Master with VIDEO-based learning and countless MS Project exercise files – right up to Advanced level.
