Effective project boards for the PRINCE2 method White Paper

September 2020

All of our White Papers and Case Studies are subject to the following Terms of Use.

The purpose of this white paper is to provide an overview of the importance of the project board within the PRINCE2® method. The white paper highlights the activities, duties, and required behaviours of project board members as described in Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® (AXELOS, 2018).

Having the right management, organizational structure, processes, and information are all important. However, surveys continue to show the added necessity of good leadership and senior management engagement (and commitment) for successful project delivery.

It is also important to note that active engagement of senior management is not an excuse for micromanaging, taking on the project manager’s role or delegating everything to the project manager and abrogating all responsibility.
