January 20, 2008


Visual Project Maps™ for PRINCE2™ has been developed by Visual Technology Solutions Limited to help address the need for a more user-friendly and flexible way to manage the documentation and control of PRINCE2™ Projects, whether they are small, one day projects or larger projects that run into months or even years.

By creating an environment where the project team are effectively working within the PRINCE2™ method, project members have easy access and visibility of project information, while they are subconsciously reinforcing their knowledge of the method.

Seeing a clearer way to project success

October 21, 2007



MindManager& Microsoft Office Project & Prince2

Anyone who has ever worked in project management (whether beginner or expert) knows that Prince2™  is a methodology and, to the beginner, it seems “difficult” and “daunting”.  I was therefore extremely pleased to discover this free event being hosted by Visual Technology Solutions and am really looking forward to it.  Anything which can assist people running projects to be able to “see a clearer way to project success” must be worth taking a good look at and it is yet another reason why I am enjoying the journey of learning MindManager 7.0 Pro™  from Mindjet.  To be able to see the VISION whilst controlling the DETAIL is a common theme with me … people need to be able to “see the wood from the trees” whilst keeping accurate and timely records.  Looks like this event should be a perfect demonstration of that in action.

The details from VTS are as follows:

Location: University of Westminster, New Cavendish Street, London, United Kingdom
Date: 31st October 2007
Time: 9:30am – 1:00 pm  

The availability of Project Management applications in today’s market place are plentiful, but what about the age old problem of project Inception, Planning and Brainstorming activities?  These very necessary precursors to any major project are often managed using the more traditional tools of white boards, flip charts and sticky notes. 

This morning event is aimed at providing anyone with an interest in  project management methodology a short but thorough clearer picture of the processes involved.
