What is PRINCE2 Agile All About?

Arras People

I have been working with PRINCE2 before it became PRINCE2 and for the last 10 years I have been a PRINCE2 trainer and consultant so I am already sold on PRINCE2. I have also been a software developer and used agile development methods and have never seen the two as being in conflict. The new PRINCE2 Agile guide has been created to provide guidance for blending the PRINCE2 project management approach with agile delivery methods.

Girl's Guide to PM

I’ve read quite a lot recently – I’m pretty proud of myself! They have been short books though. Shine , by Gerry Lewis, is a book on how to be a stand-out communicator. He explains that ‘ums’ happen in speech when your brain can’t recall information fast enough to get it out of your mouth. The more presentations and webinars I do, the more I try to control the ‘ums’ and I think it’s getting better! I would not say my brain is speeding up – perhaps it is more to do with habit forming.

How to Improve Project Requirements and Quality

Project Risk Coach

Is there a way to improve both project requirements and quality at the same time? Allow me to begin this discussion with an illustration. I recently needed a television mounted on the wall of my office. A fairly simple requirement, right? I told the handyman that I wanted the television to be head high. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the room and saw that the television had been installed a foot higher than I expected.

The short answer is no, depending on industry, team size, project complexity, team’s experience and team size the requirements for project management software change.

In support of strategic colocation

Kiron Bondale

A recent Harvard Business Review article provided the analysis on a research study conducted by Jason Corsello and Dylan Minor into potential benefits of strategic colocation. Managers usually collocate staff by role, by job level or by project team but rarely is individual capability factored into this decision making. The authors’ research showed that pairing a fast worker with a slower one appeared to speed up the productivity of slow worker rather than slowing down the faster one.
