PRINCE2 is firmly established as the world’s most practised method for project management and is globally recognized for delivering successful projects.
The updated 2017 guidance (6th Edition), its first since 2009, places a strong emphasis on the scalability and flexibility of the method and on how best to tailor it to the complexity and specific requirements of a project.
- Increased emphasis on tailoring PRINCE2 to the needs of organizations and a varied range of project environments
- Demonstrates a greater link between the PRINCE2 themes and principles
- Restructuring of the ‘Themes’ chapters to accommodate typical examples of tailoring
- Provides increased guidance on the practical application of the PRINCE2 method, with numerous examples, hint and tips
- Improvements to the structure and format have been made throughout the manual to en-sure it is easier to navigate and use
- The updated guidance and exams has been developed through a collaborative approach involving over 100 members of the broader development team, including practitioners, trainers and consultants
- PRINCE2’s familiar structure of seven principles, themes and processes have remained constant.
The new 2017 edition publication is the manual from which the syllabus and the examinations are set and supports the updated PRINCE2 certification for both Foundation and Practitioner examinations.
The second impression of the sixth edition of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 (2017) includes, in response to feedback on the first impression, a range of minor amendments to improve the overall quality of the guidance. None of these changes have any impact on the PRINCE2 Foundation or Practitioner examinations.
The changes to the guidance include:
- Clearer application of terms ‘accountable’ and ‘responsible’ throughout
- Amendment to the glossary definition of ‘quality assurance’ and related body text
- Improved consistency between terms ‘project product(s)’ and ‘project’s product(s)
- Clarification of text relating to roles within Ops and Maintenance.
