Tailoring is not about removing elements from PRINCE2!
- Integrating PRINCE2 - A publication from AXELOS dedicated to tailoring PRINCE2.
- What can be an example of simplifying a management product in PRINCE2?
- Is it OK to make PRINCE2 elements informal?
- What can be an example of renaming PRINCE2 elements?
- Is it OK to combine the Starting up a Project process with Initiating a Project Process?
- Is it OK to combine the Initiating a Project Process with Directing a Project Process?
- Is it OK to split the Managing Product Delivery into multiple processes?
- Is it OK to remove the Managing a Stage Boundary process when we don’t have stages?
- Is it OK to change the Project Manager term into “project coordinator”?
- Is it OK to merge two principles into one?
- Is it OK to add new principles to PRINCE2?
- Having Checkpoint Reports delivered as telephone calls.
- Of course!
- “Sponsor” instead of “Executive”, “Project Charter” instead of “Project Brief”, etc.
- Yes. It’s a good idea for simple projects.
- No; those processes are run in two different layers of management.
- Yes, why not. You can add more detail to your framework by this.
- No. First of all, we don’t remove elements. Secondly, we have at least two stages in PRINCE2. And finally, this process is also responsible for handling exceptions, and they can happen in a project even if you don’t have stages.
- I don’t see a problem with it.
- No, we don’t tailor principles.
- Well, this one is tricky, as we say principles shouldn’t be tailored. However, I believe it should be OK to add extra principles, as long as they are consistent with the original ones.
