PRINCE2 uses role descriptions for nearly all of the roles used in the official PRINCE2 guide. We have created these outlines for you in several different formats: Microsoft Word, OpenOffice Writer and Rich Text Format. These are offered free of charge and in a range of formats that can be used by anyone – why would you not want to take advantage and avoid all that hard work?
Essentially, these are the role descriptions taken from Appendix C of the PRINCE2 guide and turned into electronic format. They will still need you to put your stamp on them by branding them appropriately, tailoring them to your own requirements and replacing the text with each specific piece of project information, or moving responsibilities from one role to another – but at least they are free! The outlines carry the VTL Media logo – see the image gallery for examples. If you purchase the product description outlines, a slightly different version of these role descriptions is also available: there are no logos, they are created as templates and not just documents, and there is a confirmation section added to each template, such that the person taking on the role can sign and date the document to show their acceptance.
You will need to create an account in order to download these role descriptions, add them to your basket and check out in the normal way. They are free, so there will be no charge at the checkout. Once the check out process is complete, you will be able to download the zip file for the format required – Microsoft Word (.docx), OpenOffice Writer (.odt) or Rich Text Format (.rtf).
There is no limit to the number of times you can download the role descriptions. However, the license is for single use only, which applies to the individual, but can be used for as many different projects as required. Corporate users will need to contact us for details.
