Prince2 is extremely organised, stable and reliable approach to be adapted for the beginning, middle and end of a project. The methodology is consistent as it can be scaled up or down as required for the project (Pawar and Mahajan, 2017) An example how Prince2 can the tailored or scaled comes from Sun Microsystems. In 2007, Sun Microsystems Inc realised there was a need to improve a business division’s project management practices. A project delivery organisation was created. The idea was to create a functioning project management office (PMO) to develop the project management processes, Prince2 was utilised. To clarify the goals, the PMO used Prince2 to create a project initiation document. The organisation reported that Prince2 was a great fit for the business. However, it wasn’t blindly applied, instead it was tailored to fit the organisation and its culture removing certain aspects. (Herman and Siegelaub, 2008) Weaknesses As discussed by Andersen (2006) change within projects is inevitable. Therefore, developing a complete plan only at the beginning of the project is flawed and new approaches such as Agile recognise this and focus on project execution unlike traditional methodologies such as prince2 focus on thorough planning. (Špundak, 2014) This is because Prince2’s heavyweight and concentrates on comprehensive planning and a large amount of documentation. This requires more time to be allocated for documentation (Pawar and Mahajan, 2017) It also Unlike Agile approaches which creates great risk management due to its iterative nature, Prince2 doesn’t give any guidance for how to resolve problems, how judgements are made (Pawar and Mahajan, 2017) Planning One of the factors that create the success criteria of a project is good planning and scheduling methods (Lester, 2017) “Perhaps the most in any project is planning. If the planning is performed effectively, and the workers participate in the development of the plan, the chances of success are greatly enhanced” (Kerzner, 2013:245) According to Gardiner (2005), a major cause of terrible project management is due to failure at the planning stage which leads to a series of alterations which increase costs and creates delays this could be due to a lack of planning as a lack of planning will probably guarantee a project failure (Dvir, et al, 2003). A project plan explains how the project will proceed as the project plan defines the work to be done and contains the approved budget. (Lientz and Rea, 2007) It explains to participants the goal and the steps to achieve that goal as well as the order of those steps and by when they should be completed (Gardiner, 2005) The planning process involves the consumption of resources and the role of the project manager during this process is to decide on>
