Revising the Initiation Process
Have a look at the following checklists to make sure you feel confident about all the different aspects of Initiation, both the content and the way that the process works. If you can’t tick an item confidently, target that area for revision.
At Foundation level, you’re not required to know all of the activities in all of the processes in detail, but Initiation is one where you are. Be sure then that you know the activities, the overall suggested sequence of those activities, what’s happening in each and who’s doing what. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry too much, because the latest version of PRINCE2 continues an underlying logic from earlier versions that makes a lot of the method easy to predict. You’ll find that although the detail of the activities isn’t exactly self-evident, it’s generally sensible, and that makes it easier to get to grips with it all.
