Optimizing project management with a combination of PRINCE2® & PMBOK®
PMBOK and PRINCE2 may be usefully combined in many situations to benefit organizations:
The description of what to do and the detailed tools and techniques from the PMBOK Guide together with PRINCE2’s principles, governance arrangements, methods and product descriptions can improve the way that projects are managed.
When organizations are looking to develop their project managers’ skillsets they can turn to PMBOK for support. The combination of the two approaches, PMBOK and PRINCE2, provides the advantages of a clearly defined, recognized, established process that is constantly being developed while also encompassing the development of staff.
The two approaches work hand to hand for effective technology development.
The adoption of PRINCE2 and the PMBOK Guide goes a long way to help organizations meet international standards, especially ISO 21500. In the UK PRINCE2 is explicitly mentioned in BS 6079 as a means to embody the national standard.
The different approaches to managing the scope of a project, providing multiple views on the project scope intended for different stakeholders, address the benefits and risks of the project more comprehensively.
All organizations need a process for doing things and they also need skilled people to use the processes appropriately. As organizations become increasingly global in operations – and mergers and acquisitions result in a growing number of multinationals – this creates pressure to combine project management approaches and frameworks. US firms more focused on PMBOK are looking to align it with PRINCE2, while UK firms more familiar with PRINCE2 are seeking to understand how it can work with PMBOK.
Across the world organizations are evaluating how to implement complementary globally recognized approaches to derive the maximum benefits from reducing costs, identifying the right skilled resources, improving internal communication, simplifying consistent processes and delivering products and services to grow the business.
