PDF Express

Adopting PRINCE2, PDF Express is a condensed, lighter, governance model available for small and simple projects within ITCPD.

The Express PDF has three stages with each stage having various Mandatory Products and Conditional Products associated to them. Gates are the doors and barriers to the various stages, and products need completing before a stage can be transitioned.

Stage 1 - Project Start-Up & Initiation

  • The Scope and nature of the project are determined
  • The Project Manager will determine the what, when, how and who
  • Initial project costs are forecast.

Stage 2 - Managing Solution Delivery

  • Design, develop, build, test and deploy the solution 
  • Handover to the Business Operations' Team
  • The Project Manager must be able to prove to the Service Owner  and Project Board that the solution has been delivered and the business has accepted it

Stage 3 - Project Closure

  •  The Project manager will close the project
  • A closure report, lessons learnt will be documented and a post implementation review will take place
