Chapter 1 : WHAT IS PRINCE2 

1WHAT IS PRINCE2

  • PRINCE2 (An Acronym for Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management.
  • PRINCE2 is flexible, adaptable and as much as a project method can be friendly.
  • PRINCE2® is a method for managing projects. It helps you work out who should be involved and what they will be responsible for. It gives you a set of processes to work through and explains what information you should be gathering along the way.
  • PRINCE2 may be similar to what you currently use, but what it does best is pull together common names and descriptions into a structure that anyone familiar with PRINCE2 can understand, regardless of background or industry.
  • Used extensively by the UK Government, PRINCE2 is also widely recognized and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.
