Colin Bentley has spent the last 40 years managing projects, large and small, across the world. He has worked with PRINCE2(R), PRINCE(R) and its predecessor, PROMPT II, since the 1970s and was one of the team that brought PROMPT II to the marketplace. As the main author of the original PRINCE2(R) manual, a former Chief Examiner in PRINCE2(R) for the Association for Project Management Group (APMG) and Lead Reviewer for the 2009 PRINCE2(R) manual, he is the perfect guide to real-world application of PRINCE2(R) beyond the classroom theory for project management success.
"Overall this is a solid book about PRINCE2 with practical advice about how to use the method for large projects or tailor it for small projects. This is a good step beyond an introduction without any attempt to be a study guide. In doing so, the author has written something all students of project management should read before taking a PRINCE2 exam."
