    In this white paper, our trainer and expert Niels Van Bemmelen, explains the importance of Tailoring within PRINCE2 2017, focusing on Tailoring from the organization’s standard. “Tailoring is adapting a method or process to suit the situation in which it will be used.” (PRINCE2 manual). In this case, tailoring the PRINCE2 method to adapt it to the situation where it will be used. In response to this definition, I have often heard the question “And why do we need to tailor PRINCE2? Isn’t it a universal project management method that can be used for all kinds of projects?” Now, that universal aspect of PRINCE2 is exactly what makes that PRINCE2 can be applied to any project.

    Annabelle Haegeman, Strategic Coordination and Communication at FPS Finance, presented at our yearly conference for the Public Sector the steps of this journey and the critical factors for success. With her words: “Five years after the start of the reform, we realised that we needed more transparancy and uniformity (on budget allocation & spending, on project realisation …) and we needed to increase the success rate of our projets. We therefore analysed the actual situation and what were our strenghts and weaknesses. And that is where we identified the four critical success factors below.”

    This PMI Insitute White Paper focuses on how important it is for projects to deliver strategic objectives: it is not enough for projects to come in on time and on budget. They must also be in sync with strategy. Organizations talk a good game about strategy. But without the right projects and programs to carry them out, even the most forward-thinking strategies fail. To help bridge the chasm between high-level strategic vision and in-the-trenches  implementation, many organizations turn to a project management office (PMO).  If an organization decides to establish a PMO, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. The article outlines five of the most common PMO frameworks and shows the case of Verizon Wireless (USA based).
