The objective of this paper is to provide the project manager with some practical advice on ways to gain business approval of PRINCE2 (or similar methodologies).
This paper focuses on practical methods to ‘sell’ PRINCE2 to senior management, particularly where a number of past projects have failed or were closed prematurely.
When a project fails, how do you separate the methodology from its implementation? Quite often the project management methodology is blamed for the failed project, making it more difficult to recommend the methodology for future projects. This reaction is similar to throwing out the proverbial baby with the bath water.
