PRINCE2® Implementation: Achieving Excellence Through Employee Development


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

This project was initiated to enhance the project management capability of the City of Edinburgh's Housing department. The PRINCE2 methodology was adopted with training for personnel and development of an appropriate governance structure for implementation. It has enhanced effectiveness and understanding of the practicalities of project design, management and delivery, and provided professional development opportunities to its staff. The improved procedures have already seen success in the delivery of projects within time and budget.

A chief complaint about PRINCE 2 is that it is too bureaucratic however from this case study, it shows the benefits of applying PRINCE 2 far outweigh this negative tendency. Of course with tailoring and using minimum PRINCE 2 requirements, this negative tendency is highly mitigated. It would be interesting to see a side by side comparison of the use of PRINCE 2 and another popular project management method, via case studies.

The blog satisfactorily outlines the benefits of applying PRINCE 2 practically but it fails to capture its shortcomings in a similar manner

If anyone believes that PRINCE2 works on an A-B basis without the need to review, adapt and learn should read this report. Success is dictated by the ability to interpret the environment, recognise a rapidly moving environment surrounding the project and ensure that the porject adapts appropriately.

This provides further insight for me into how PRINCE2 methodology is used in staff training and awareness which I recently experienced on a PRINCE2 managed project.

Great case study to see how, if you invest in your employees, you can reap the rewards and give better value to your customer.
