The purpose of the guide is to help organisations gain full value from the PRINCE2 method by providing practical advice on using its Maturity Model (P2MM). The guide shows how P2MM can be used: to help implement PRINCE2 for first time users; re-invigorate existing implementations; help organisations improve their project performance; as a benchmark to assess organisational capability and plan improvements; as a means of gaining external recognition for organisational capability; and as part of a wider goal to improve Portfolio, Programme, and Project Management performance.

PRINCE2 is cited as the most widely used project management method worldwide. But, while the PRINCE2 manual describes how to manage a single project it does not include any guidance on how to embed PRINCE2 into an organisation.
Such guidance is now available: The Guide to the PRINCE2 Maturity Model (P2MM) describes the organisationsal processes and practices required for the effective implementation of PRINCE2 as an organisational standard. P2MM includes guidance on assigning ownership, tailoring the method, training, integrating PRINCE2 with other management systems and establishing quality assurance mechanisms to gain a continuous improvement capability.
By reading The Guide to the PRINCE2 Maturity Model (P2MM) you will discover how organisations can gain full value from the PRINCE2 Method. It contains practical advice on using the OGC's PRINCE2 Maturity Model (P2MM) and shows how P2MM can be used:
* To help implement PRINCE2 (first time users);
* To re-invigorate/enhance existing PRINCE2 implementations
* To help organisations improve their project performance by going beyond training and templates (i.e. overcoming the issue of PRINCE in Name Only - PINO);
* As a benchmark to assess organisational capability, plan improvements and to measure the success of such improvements;
* As a means for external recognition of organisational (rather than individual) PRINCE2 capability via APM Group accreditation assessments.
The guide is intended for those people responsible for or involved in the implementation/adoption of PRINCE2:
* Head of Projects (or equivalent);
* Project/Programme Office Manager (or equivalent);
* Project Manager (of a PRINCE2 implementation project);
* Quality Manager;
* Internal Auditor;
* Consultant (internal and external).
