Editor's Note

Following the publication of our review of PRINCE2, 2005 Edition, one of the principal authors, Colin Bentley, expressed concerns and raised a number of issues. It is important for visitors to these web pages who are interested in the PRINCE2 methodology to understand these issues and correct any misunderstanding. To do this, we have repeated below the relevant text from our original review followed by Colin's observations and our own responses where appropriate. Feel free to contact us if you disagree.
