The seven PRINCE2® principles are:
- Continued business justification: there must be a justifiable reason to be running and managing the project. If not, the project should be closed.
- Learn from experience: PRINCE2 project teams should continually seek and draw on lessons learned from previous work.
- Defined roles and responsibilities: the PRINCE2 project team should have a clear organizational structure and involve the right people in the right tasks.
- Manage by stages: PRINCE2 projects should be planned, monitored and controlled on a stage-by-stage basis.
- Manage by exception: people working within the project should be given the right amount of authority to effectively work within the environment.
- Focus on products: PRINCE2 projects focus on the product definition, delivery and quality requirements.
- Tailor to suit the project environment: PRINCE2 must be tailored to suit the project’s environment, size, complexity, importance, capability and risk.
Application and Understanding of the themes by stating the minimum requirement needed for each theme, and give specific guidance on how to tailor to certain environments. The seven PRINCE2 themes:
- Business case: create and maintain a record of the business justification for the project.
- Organization: define the individual roles and responsibilities of the whole project team.
- Quality: what the quality requirements and measures are and how the project will deliver them.
- Plans: the steps required to develop the plans and the PRINCE2 techniques that should be used.
- Risk: effectively identify risks and opportunities that could impact the project.
- Change: how the project manager will assess and act on changes to the project.
- Progress: the ongoing viability and performance of the plans and how and whether the project should proceed.
These describe the steps of the project lifecycle, from the initial idea to project closure (and measurement of the benefits). Each process provides checklists of recommended activities, related responsibilities, and guidance about how to tailor to a specific environment.
