Abstract [en]

In order to take a look at the relationship between PRINCE2 (one of the most popular project management methods) and the degree of usability of the produced system, a case study was conducted in a company.

During the case study, participants were recruited for a brainstorming section, during which they brainstormed some issues and features regarding PRINCE2 framework. These ideas were later summarized by the researcher as the preparation of a Card Sorting section. The same participants were invited again for a Card Sorting, during which they sorted the summarized issues and features into different categories labeled with different aspect of PRINCE2. An analysis was then carried out to find the most commonly agreed issues/features in a certain aspect of PRINCE2.

The result of the study shows some strength that PRINCE2 has such as clear definition of authority and accountability, good support for planning, but there’re some concerns in tailoring/embedding of the method and etc.
