Sample text

The point is that you have to think, not follow the manual blindly. indd 30 3/19/10 10:28 PM Chapter 3: Getting Real Power from PRINCE2 31 Beware of List Tickers – they can seriously damage both your patience and your project budget. But don’t confuse List Tickers with Project Assurance and Quality Assurance, both of which are genuinely helpful when performed properly.

Chapter 10 tells you what you need to know about ad hoc direction, but briefly it’s where the Project Board functions as the Project Manager’s boss.
