The advise for companies wishing to use Prince2 for the first time should have been expanded on.

I feel it is important for the change to come from the top down, getting the key directors of the company involved so there is less resistance to the change.

Interesting case study. It's interesting to see how stakeholders come around after the change to PRINCE2.

This case study is the proof that also among difficulties and concerns there is the possibility to get benefits of Prince2 adoption since experiencing and using lesson learned, there is the continuous improvement in setting new project settings
