PRINCE2 offers particular advantages for IT projects because the method originates from the same creators as the globally recognized ITIL framework. But PRINCE2 can be used in a wide range of business areas, can be applied to all kinds of project types, and can even make the leap into the agile world if required.
PRINCE2 itself is considered both versatile and adaptable. The PRINCE2 Agile variant creates the ideal bridge to combine controllable and clear project design with the flexibility and speed of agile environments.
Ongoing further development guarantees that the method will remain up to date in our modern, changeable working world. As recently as 2017, PRINCE2 was comprehensively revised at the request of the professional public. The core elements, based on decades of project management experience, remained virtually unchanged in this update. A team of three authors, supported by three mentors, wrote the updated guidelines in close collaboration with certified PRINCE2 practitioners, the certified AXELOS community, and project management experts from a wide range of industry sectors and cultures. In addition, the guidelines were reviewed by over one hundred project management specialists – while Michael Weber, a SERVIEW expert, provided valuable feedback about the new PRINCE2 version.
