The Port of Rotterdam and Maasvlakte 2 PRINCE2 Case Study

December 2012

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.

As this project demonstrates, once control and organisation are intact, planning is more efficient and delivery is even more efficient! This helps me appreciate PRINCE2 even better.
