Choosing Between PMI and Prince2: Some Considerations

If you have been looking for ways to make your organizational projects run at a more efficient pace and produce better outputs, you might want to consider Prince2. But before you jump on the Prince2 project management and PMI bandwagon, it is essential to do a lot of self-reflection and assess if you really know how you can apply such a tool to your projects.

For one thing, you need to know if your organization is aligned to OGC’s best practice or PMI. This is the very first thing you need to consider. If some hesitation on your part occurs, you might want to do a rethink. Next, consider all the strengths of the solution you are considering. What is good about? What makes OGC stand out? Following this train of thought, think of the possible weaknesses of both PMI and OGC. You also need to determine if it is necessary for you to extend the PMI and Office of Government Commerce materials in order to make your organizational operations a lot more effective and productive. If the answer is yes, which major areas have you highlighted or pinpointed as the necessary recipients of such tools? Finally, brainstorm with your team and figure out if there are still any unanswered questions that you might need to satisfy  – questions that are necessary in order to proceed with the actual general consensus and decision-making with regard to the proper solution you need to incorporate in your program. Once you answer these questions, you will be able to make the right decision regarding the right project management solution.
