Funny thing computers, they start out as pristine towers of high-tech…and end up as a pile-of-files glory hole. It’s normally about this time that they start to slow down due to all the junk you’ve collected, and you start thinking about getting a new one…
So there I was a few days ago, trying to stop the rot by having a bit of a tidy up (aren’t those ‘duplicate file finder’ applications cool!). When I came across an old JPG that a delegate had taken of my PRINCE2 Roadmap while I was delivering one of my training seminars. Okay, so it was hand-drawn live and would not win any prizes for neatness, but delegates usually tell me later that it was one of the most useful and important sessions in the course.
So I’ve spent the last few hours making a proper PDF out of it, and added my talkthrough text – the result is quite a useful PRINCE2 preparation product. And you can have it for FREE!
Just hop on over to THIS link and fill in the form at the top left of my website.
I remember that whenever I held a PRINCE2 training event, there were always cries of “you need to get my boss to attend”. By the end of the week I knew exactly what they meant. You see, senior managers also need to get savvy about providing direction to PRINCE2 projects, after all, it will make their lives (and their success) so much better!
A handful of PRINCE2 training companies do offer some form of project board briefing, usually for one day and at a cost of several hundred pounds. Not many folks get round to attending though – as I can testify to after some 15 years of delivering PRINCE2 live training seminars.
And you know, it’s not normally the money that stops senior managers – it’s the time. All that travel, staying in a hotel overnight, attending the event and travelling back. It knocks a big 2 day timechunk out of a busy exective’s agenda…
The foks at the Office of Government Commerce have even created a companion manual to the standard PRINCE2 – and called it “Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2”
But again, for the busy senior manager – it’s a bit of a dry and text-dense read…
So I’ve come to the rescue (sound the trumpets please….)
Hot off the press (I’m just doing the final rendering of the videos), I’ll be launching my Directing a Project Primer tomorrow, the 2 April 2011.
I’ve designed it as just 8 ‘easy to watch and listen’ video modules with an accompanying full colour workbook. You could watch the whole thing easily over a weekend with around 6 to 7 hours total viewing.
Reserve your copy now at my special ‘early bird’ price for the first 100 customers…
Go home Friday night as Clark Kent – arrive Monday morning as a Hero project director…

At Last! For countless years I have been bombarded with requests to teach the skills of PRINCE2 Directing a Project to Project Board members. Two years ago the OGC brought out a new accompanying Manual to PRINCE2 – and called it ‘Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2’.
So I finally did it. I have completed a brand new 8 Video and supporting Workbook based on the above book, and called it my Project Board Briefing Primer.
It’s aimed exclusively at those senior managers who are either already sitting on PRINCE2 Project Boards or will soon be in the near future. Even senior managers who need to focus on those parts of PRINCE2 that they wish to learn more about…
You see, senior managers are normally too busy running the organization to spare time attending training events – yet they are the folks that sponsor, underwrite, or sit on Project Boards for PRINCE2 projects. These folks NEED to know about PRINCE2 from the senior management helicopter viewpoint.
Well, they can rest up now, because I’ve created a Step By Step 8 – Video downloadable Project Board Briefing Primer that can be watched and absorbed over just a weekend. You can watch and learn at your own time and pace.
Leave work on a Friday night – and return on Monday morning confidently able to provide PRINCE2 Project Board Direction!

For those of you out there that have an interest in project management and PRINCE2 in particular…
I am writing a whole book-full of PRINCE2-related blog articles – starting yesterday! I will be adding one juicy article each day.
I’m calling this series of blogs “PRINCE2 In Bite-Sized Chunks. Easily the sort of information you could swallow whole before breakfast each day!
The articles will be focused right down at activity level and will be a great source of free ‘how-to’ ideas for the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner student!
Right after I finish this blog, I will upload my third PRINCE2 In Bite-Sized Chunks blog – so keep an eye out for it….

I've just given birth….to my Brand New GOLD LIMITED EDITION PRINCE2 Primer. I've gone into full detail on the slides, ending up with 320 animated PowerPoint slides, which I used to record over 20 hours of step-by-step full motion video tutorial in the form of 16 Step-By-Step Modules..
There's no padding, no fill, just clear, concise tutorials on every corner of the new Manual. I leave no stone unturned. You get to understand and absorb PRINCE2 in easy bite-sized chunks, so when you turn up at your training course you are already fully prepared to take and pass the Foundation and Practitioner exams!
You also get a massive 200-question QUIZ based on the Foundation exam questions, and 20 in-depth exercises to test the students understanding of key PRINCE2 aspects. As before, I've created a Workbook for each of the Modules containing full colour graphics of every single slide.
But it gets better, you also get 21 Practitioner Exam questions and answers.
Get ahead of the queue – http://www.prince2primer.com I know you're gonna like it….
