|Planning and documenting a project correctly is crucial in determining its success. PRINCE2 has a prescribed method for project start-up involving several key documents, the first being the Project Brief.
The Project Brief is an official statement of the requirements and expectations of senior management. Before developing a project brief the Project Mandate should be checked to ensure it is complete and fully supported by a level of management that has the power to authorise costs and resource usage. The Project Brief builds upon the Mandate adding further detail to the project definition, outline business case and project tolerances sections but also adding in new information such as the customer’s quality expectations, acceptance criteria and any known risks.
