2. Understand how to apply effective people management in successful projects.

3. Understand how to apply and tailor relevant aspects of PRINCE2® practices in context.

PRINCE2® 7 has been designed with these broad principles in mind:

  • To ensure that PRINCE2® remains adaptable and flexible and can be used in a wide range of organizations and environments. To do this PRINCE2® must provide a ‘common universal language’ so that there is a common understanding of why a project is being undertaken, what it is trying to achieve, and what it is aiming to deliver.
  • To provide guidance that retains and strengthens all the aspects of PRINCE2® that remain valid, while adding new complementary content in a way that maintains and builds on the integrity of the integrated framework.
  • To not ‘replicate’ guidance that is provided in other methods such as Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) and Management of Risk (M_o_R 4), but instead to offer additional value to anyone involved in a project.
  • To emphasise how PRINCE2® is designed to be applied and tailored appropriately according to the project environment and the project requirements.
  • To enable project teams to recognise the many ways that outputs can be delivered, including iterative (Agile), linear and hybrid approaches
