This PRINCE2 book is of a different kind. It aims to compensate for the dryness of the official guidance and accredited training materials by bringing fun into the study of project management. 

A PRINCE2 book to aid you in your studies - the unique concept of PRINCE2 Fiction adds a new dimension to learning materials

prince2 study guideIn the beginning, there was a lament. Delegates on my PRINCE2® courses consistently grumbled about the absence of learning materials that would help them grasp PRINCE2 concepts in an entertaining way. They bemoaned the dryness of the official guidance that was difficult to digest. And pleaded for a learning aid that would be engaging – and even fun – to read and study.

PRINCE2 may not be exactly rocket science. Still, this method of project management has a depth that requires an effort to grasp. The learning curve is steep. And true enough, accredited course training materials do tend to be on the dry side.

This is how I came up with the idea of writing a PRINCE2 book – PRINCE2 Fiction. 

That offered a promising angle. And besides, I’ve got certain experience in the writing of fiction. To help readers stay on the ball, I wrote this PRINCE2 book – a novella – in a lively conversational language. I wrapped PRINCE2 stuff in an intriguing fictional plot. Spiced it with my own “war stories”. And created a cast of lifelike characters to whom readers will easily relate.

On this page, you’ll find the light version of my PRINCE2 book. I´ll publish it in weekly instalments during the next four months or so.

You´ll notice that some chapters are rather short. Very short, as a matter of fact. The full version has, of course, a significantly more meaty substance. It supports the plot and characters´ actions by including extracts from the official PRINCE2 guidance.  After all, and despite being so entertaining, a PRINCE2 novella remains a PRINCE2 study guide and its purpose is to help candidates prepare for the certification exams. 

The full version of “The Deep-Space Oddity Project” in e-book and print-on-demand formats are available for purchase from Amazon  and Kobo.

And now, enjoy the reading and let me know how you liked my PRINCE2 Fiction.
