The Executive Guide to Directing Projects: within a PRINCE2 and MSP® Environment' is an accessible summary of the full guidance in a portable format suitable for quick reference or a quick read - a "ten minute guide" for the busy project board member. It introduces the additional considerations that project boards need to take into account if the project is being run within a programme and/or portfolio managed governance structure.
