Andy Murray, lead author of the Handbook of PRINCE2: 2009 gave insider tips and was new project management version before Dreieich, 08.10.2009. The first PRINCE2: 2009 Executive Congress was a great success. The approximately 20 participants, mainly project decision makers and managers, agreed: the new version makes the project management method even leaner, easier and thus more effective. Oliver Buhr, Managing Director of COPARGO and host of the Congress, pointed out in his speech the clarity of the method. While most other project management standards had become rich after her revisions, the extent of the new PRINCE2 manuals have decreased significantly. The adjustments were based primarily on impulses and feedback by users of PRINCE2 projects and deceive Bill as the best-practice ideas. Keynote speaker of the Congress and lead author of the new PRINCE2 Manual, Andy Murray, spoke of a comprehensive update that looks like an evolutionary process.
It was not the method completely reinventing, but to develop them. This was superbly managed. Meanwhile, PRINCE2 have developed a project management standard, is not reduced to government organizations or IT projects. Rather, the method is generic and applies to all types of projects. Murray two years headed the team of authors that wrote down the changing requirements of the user as well as the requirements of the owner organization APMG in two new manuals.
The method to make slimmer and more pragmatic, enjoyed top priority here. So, the processes of PRINCE2 project from eight to seven have been reduced. The number of project management products decreased from 36 to 26. A related site: Darcy Stacom, New York City mentions similar findings. It is for the user not necessary until the last page completely out of my mind to know the new manuals from the first. The two books were reference works for specific stations instead during a project. Murray pointed out that were the most important to him changes directly from the practice.
