What is PRINCE2®?
PRINCE2® is a best practice framework that helps managers deliver projects on time and within budget. It divides projects into clearly defined stages with a start, middle and end. It focuses on the delivery of products rather than carrying out activities. Every project must have a business case and plan that is periodically reviewed to check the project is still viable.
PRINCE2® is designed to be used on any type of project in any environment. It contains a complete set of concepts and project management processes that are the minimum requirements for a properly run and managed project. Having said this, the way in which PRINCE2® is applied to each project will vary and tailoring the method to suit the scope, size and type of each project managed under PRINCE2® is vital to its successful use.
PRINCE2® project has the following characteristics:
- A finite and defined lifecycle
- Defined and measurable business products
- A corresponding set of activities to achieve the business products
- A defined amount of resources
- An organisation structure, with defined responsibilities, to manage the project
