PRINCE2 Model - a tall job!

By Norma Hart, Training Associate at Maven Training.

I don't know if other trainers use the Maven process model this way but this week I asked the delegates to construct it as a group on a large wall space in the training room. I took out the white boxes which list the management products created in each process so they had to use their memories or the P2 manual to place the documents next to the appropriate process. It took about twenty minutes at the beginning of Thursday and was a useful exercise for them ( building confidence and reviewing learning) and for me ( they made a couple of mistakes, telling me which topics to concentrate on ). Fortunately my one male delegate was very tall so he could place the project mandate on the ceiling!

    Using the PRINCE2 model like this works well. I have done it similarly with delegates, splitting into two groups and giving half of the model to each, getting them to recreate from scratch on separate walls. It’s a good final revision for the foundation paper if you have time rather than formal ‘book’ revision.
