Note: This book is available in several languages: English, Dutch. An increasing number of companies are working in a project-like manner, using the PRINCE2 project management method. The advantages of a standard method are great: a uniform method of working and terminology makes projects comparable, transferable and orderly. Moreover, PRINCE2 has additional qualities, such as the standard no go/go decision with each stage, the Business Case at the centre of the project and clear agreements about who is responsible for what. The book gives a faithful representation of the 2009 Edition of the PRINCE2 methodology, with many lists serving as reference material for all project types and sizes. Furthermore, as the content of the book covers all specs for the PRINCE2 Foundation exams, it can serve as a good basis for the PRINCE2 Foundation exams. The three authors of this title have successfully combined their tremendous experience and made this available in a structured manner to those who are involved in controlling, designing or managing projects. And whatever they missed was added by a team of expert reviewers. The content for this book is also intended for everyone doing projects in real world, it covers more than the minimum reference that is necessary for the Foundation exam. Therefore it is also very useful as a solid starting point for anyone studying for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam.
