    FREE Breakfast / PRINCE2 & Risk Management Seminar on Wednesday 29th April at the University of Chester, Thornton Science Park
    It is essential for businesses to remain focussed on their idea and bring it quickly to market. Project management is a proven approach in this that is more typically applied in established organisations who have recognised its benefits. However, the use of project management and in particular the PRINCE2 approach can be very beneficial to start up and new organisations. PRINCE2 is the de facto project management method today. It is designed to be tailored to utilise the resources available to the organisation and thus give minimum use of resources for maximum return.
    At the heart of PRINCE2 is the business case upon which progress and changes need to be focussed.
    PRINCE2 consists of:

    • Principles
    • Themes
    • Processes

    All of the above can be tailored to individual organisations. This seminar will introduce each of the above and help you to understand how applying PRINCE2 as a method of project management can benefit your business and the pitfalls to avoid.
