In my previous article, I have talked about some of the major things that are common to Prince2 projects. In this article, I want to look at some of the key Prince2 roles that are available when you are using Prince2 methodology to manage projects.
#1 The customer as part of Prince2 roles
Whoever is paying for the project is always referred to as the customer. It might be the CEO of the company or any other individual bankrolling the project. It might even be that the project was a joint venture of sorts.
#2 The User as part of Prince2 roles
The user is anyone who will use the deliverable or will be affected by the outcome of the project. It is also possible that the customer is also a user of the project.
#3 The Supplier as part of Prince2 roles
These are the experts that their knowledge will be needed to create the final deliverable of the project. They are also known as Subject Matter Expert depending on who is talking.
#4 The Project Manager
Under Prince2 roles, Project Managers are individual who organises the project, delegates works and assignment and keeps the project going. The success and failure of the project lie on the shoulder of the project manager.
#5 Project team
The Project team are actually the group of people that do the work and ensure that the various task of the project is being performed. This category of people can come from within and outside the organisation depending on the nature of the project.
#6 Team Manager
This is the leader of the project team. It is also possible that we have more than one team manager at a time. Some times they are referred to as Supervisors. Their work is to coordinate other team members in order to achieve project goals.
#7 The administrator
The administrator in a Prince2 project owns all the documentation. He is responsible for meeting the objectives and facilitation of the project process. Depending on the size of the project, it is possible for the administrator to also be the Project Manager.
