The benefit of good governance

As deadly as unclear goals for a project are, it should also be clear who is traveling with whom and under what conditions. Clear responsibilities and escalation channels help immensely in achieving common goals. A good project management methodology tries to counter the complexity of the goals and the tasks with an appropriate structure - a well-considered project organization. In practice we often experience the opposite: roles and responsibilities are renegotiated each time, processes are redeveloped and activities are rethought from scratch. In addition to the complexity that is already there, the people involved only have to face more complexity. This is exactly where the strengths of the PRINCE2 project management methodology come into play - good, well-considered governance.
