PRINCE2 embodies established and proven best practice and governance for project management.
It can be applied to any type of project- and can easily be implemented alongside specialist , industry specific models (development lifecycle or engineering models) PRINCE2 is widely recognised and understood and therefore provides a common vocabulary for all participants- promoting effective communication. PRINCE2 provides for the explicit recognition of project responsibilities – so that participants understand each other's roles and needs. There is a defined structure for accountability delegation, authority and communication. Its product focus clarifies (for all parties) what a project will deliver, why, when by whom and for whom PRINCE2 plans are carefully designed to meet the needs of the different levels in the management team, improving communication and control. .
It is based on a 'management by exception' framework, providing for the efficient and economic use of management time (whether at corporate, programme, Project Board or project management levels) PRINCE2 ensures that participants focus on the viability of the project in relation to its business Case objectives rather than simply seeing the completion of the project as an end in itself. It defines a thorough but economical structure of reports. It ensures that stakeholders (including sponsors and resource providers) are properly represented in planning and decision making. .
Adopting PRINCE2 promotes learning and continual improvement in organisations. PRINCE2 promotes consistency of project work and the ability to reuse projects assets; it also facilitates staff mobility and reduces the impact of personnel changes/handovers
PRINCE2 is an invaluable diagnostic tool facilitating the assurance and assessment of project work, troubleshooting and audits.
