Directing a Project

Directing a Project is mainly about ensuring the benefits and business value of the project. This is similar to the responsibility of a Product Owner in Scrum. So, care should be taken not to create conflicts here. The key is the normal PRINCE2 Manage by Exception principle: Keep the directing level focused only on the high-level aspects.

It’s a good idea for the Project Board and especially the Executive to be good at Product Ownership.

There are different ways of scaling Scrum. In one method, there’s a chief Product Owner working with a number of local Product Owners. The Executive would be similar to this kind of chief Product Owner; directing the local Product Owners who are working with the teams.
