Outperform is a group of management practitioners experienced in delivering complex bids, projects and programmes within both the public and private sectors in the UK and internationally.

As an Accredited Consulting Organisation (ACO), we also have Registered Consultants who have been assessed by the APMG in accordance with BS EN 45011 as being sufficiently experienced and skilled to offer best practice advice and guidance in their specialist areas (PRINCE2, MSP, M_o_R and PPM). In fact we are currently the only Accredited Consulting Organisation licensed to consult in all of the AXELOS Limited best practice methods.

The project to refresh PRINCE2 took nearly three years and involved more than 200 organisations through the sponsorship, consultation, authoring and reviewing. The reviews themselves generated over 7000 comments over 7 iterations. It is not surprising that the feedback on PRINCE2 2009 has been extremely positive. It should be, given the depth and breadth of experience of the vast numbers of people involved.

However, one of the challenges the authoring team faced was that a hard-copy book is not the best medium for writing a method. A method isn’t something that can be easily described in sequence from the first to the last page. A method involves a sophisticated relationship between the principles, processes, management products, themes and environmental factors that people (through their roles) need to apply.

Thankfully, the world has moved on from books and through media-wiki’s capability of being able to link pieces of information as a network of ideas (rather than just a sequence or hierarchy) we have been able to unleash the full value of PRINCE2.

Taking a wiki approach to describing PRINCE2, does not only make it more complete, it makes it easier to use too. We hope you agree!

PRINCE2 is without doubt the best approach to managing projects out there. But there again, as one of the authoring team, I may be a little biased in that opinion. However, once you've been on the course and put little yellow sticky notes all over the pages of the manuals to help you pass the exam, how do you find what you want in a practical way when you come to apply the method? How do you learn from what's in the heads of those practitioners and consultants who've been there before? How do you find what you want to know without reading the manual from start to finish again (especially when your yellow sticky notes have long since fallen off)?

So welcome to a new way to learn about project management in your organisation.

This is a wiki based book of knowledge that allows you to navigate in your own way and at your own pace through PRINCE2. Or rather that should be PRINCE2 applied with the experience that comes from embedding and tailoring the method in dozens of organisations. You can use this to supplement the manuals, as an alternative to formal training, or just to see what the thought leaders are actually thinking. You can also benefit from hints and tips, which we hope to grow over time with your input.

I hope you enjoy what you see. If you do, or if you don't, please feel free to email me at nigel.bennett@outperform.co.uk
