15 July 2016   |   Programme Management, Agile PgM, Project Management, Agile PM, Project Management, PRNCE2 Agile, Project Management

8 Common Misconceptions about Project Management Common misconceptions about project management easily derail projects that do not incorporate internationally-accepted standards of project planning, execution, control and closure. Here are 8 common misconceptions to avoid: 1. Project process is more crucial than implementers A smooth, well-planned project process is key.

Agile success is up to a single Executive. Over many years I have come across numerous examples of both successful and unsuccessful project management implementations. Whether it was based on a PMBoK, APM or PRINCE2 method made no difference, they quietly thrived or noisily failed. The answer for a higher implementation success rate seems to elude many, in spite of all the conferences attended. Along comes Agile with all its flavours, into the mainstream of [...] Read more

They voiced their main stumbling blocks, specifically: very limited involvement from the customer side; a poor understanding of Agile, even from the implementer; confusion around the Agile flavour to use; and Agile extremism, i.e. implementers and some project managers [...] Read more

Is Agile the “Magic Solution” for Project Success?

30 September 2015   |   Project Management, Agile PM, Project Management, PRNCE2 Agile, Programme Management, Project Management

Agile the latest buzzword; the new hype. Is it time for a PRINCE2 Agile combination? As an experienced PRINCE2® and AgilePM™ trainer, I have recently come across rather scary interactions with my delegates that indicates that their employers think Agile is going to magically resolve any issues faced in the past when it comes to successful project delivery.
