When do you lose control of a plan?

Angela Faithful, Training Consultant at Maven Training, tells us that to some delegates losing control of a plan means war… Read this anecdote involving an MoD delegate on a PRINCE2® course!

“One of my delegates on a PRINCE2® course worked for the MoD and was nearing retirement. He was very much the stereotypical RAF gentleman – even with a lovely white mini handlebar moustache. During our session looking at the control loop (Plan – Monitor – Control – Plan etc) he piped up: “Well the way we look at it, you lose control of a plan once the enemy gets involved!” The rest of the class really thought this was funny – but on reflection, perhaps we should always try to identify the enemy at least in our Risk Management!”
