The smaller group of PRINCE2 enthusiasts can easily underestimate the resistance they will meet in the rest of the organization if the more reluctant stakeholders are bombarded with new processes and documents. Words like “bureaucratic” and “document centric” will get a foothold, and you need to be careful if this doesn’t match with the profile of your executive management team.
So what should you do?
- Show that you have a business centric approach.
- Show that you have focus on what needs to be delivered.
- Show that you are focused on making sure the project “mission” is understood and aligned.
- Establish some “under the hood” tools that helps you stay in control.
The equivalent PRINCE2 tools would be:
- Business CaseProduct Based Plan
- Project Brief
- Logs and registers
In your list of projects, you can now introduce a “status” column, giving visibility to which projects are in “starting up” and which are “approved”.
