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!
