A guide to effective project management

This book will guide you through each step of your project, clearly defining the underlying principles that should be applied to every project, regardless of what is going on inside or outside the project environment. They are sound, proven rules, which can be used as markers on the way to project success.

PRINCE2 is principle-based rather than prescriptive. The principles are:

  • Universal in that they apply to every project

Not worth listening

Hard to listen. Voice not easily comprehensible. Examples ("illustrations") are so childish that make it difficult to understand whet they illustrate. I completely lost trust in this book when heard "illustration" about atomic energy and how unsafe it is... If author has no knowledge in physics than should not write anything like that, please.
Having knowledge and experience in PRINCE2 I purchased this book to refresh vocab, processes while commuting... and it does not deliver.

Helped me pass my exam

This is a great resource for reminding yourself about the themes, processes, principles and so on that make up PRINCE2. I used it as part of my Foundation exam revision and it definitely came in useful, as it gives context and use-case examples that clarify all the terminology you need to memorise.

That said, this won't teach you PRINCE2, and you'll need lectures etc to get the most out of your learning and this book.

Good refresher

Easy to listen to and covers broad brush most of the concepts.

However, the reader occasionally seems to START SHOUTING FOR NO REASON.

Not sure was this was deliberate at the boring bits but rather off putting.

Useful refresher

I would recommend this audio book to existing users of Prince2 as a refresher. However new users would benefit from the paper copy in my opinion. The Prince2 handbook is still the best source though.
I did get distracted by the number of female PM’s names in the examples - I was worried the author might run out of names. Didn’t.
