To PRINCE2 or not to PRINCE2

As regular readers of this blog will know, we have mixed views on PRINCE2 usage.  We note that The Centre for Project Management Practice 2009’s debate is focussing on one of the most hotly disputed topics in current project management research and practice today.
2009 sees the introduction by the OGC of the 4th version of PRINCE2 (which hopefully will be much more pragmatic in it’s approach) yet some academics decry the capabilities of formal ‘bodies of knowledge’ and practitioners can see them as strangling their projects in bureaucracy.
