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

A major step in Maasvlakte 2, a project first started in 2004, was reached a year ahead of schedule. On Wednesday, 11 July 2012 Her Majesty Queen Beatrix gave the sign to close the 11 km seawall around 2,000 hectares of new, man-made land. This case study provides the background to this huge £2 billion infrastructure project, which has employed 20,000 people, is now running ahead of time and remains within scope and is on budget - and explains how the use of PRINCE2 has made this possible.

This case study is also available in Dutch (PDF, 4.5MB).

Nice paper for a P3M3 example, good video to go alone.
