PRINCE 2 Method

[PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT BRIEF:]
[It is essential to obtain a clear view of the final objective(s) and outcome, as well as the constraints and assumptions that impact on those responsible for the project. A properly constructed Project Mandate will help but as the creation of the Project Mandate is outside the control of the Project Manager, the Project Brief is used to “fill in the gaps”. The Project Brief is used to identify the basic essentials of the proposed project (Objectives, Outline Business Benefits & Risks; Customer’s Quality Expectations etc). The Project Brief should be drawn up in consultation with the sponsor of the proposed project. The Project Manager is responsible for producing the Project Brief and agreeing it with the Project Authority (the Project Board Executive member) and subsequently the Project Board at the Project Initiation Meeting (PIM).]

This document has been produced to capture a “first cut” view of the scope, investment needed, dependencies on other projects and anticipated payback so that the constituent parts of the Project/Programme can be prioritised, funded and authorised. The Project Brief will provide the basis for the Project Authority (Project Board) to decide to authorise the creation of the Project Initiation Document (PID).
