What is PRINCE2?


This web site has been created to help anyone understand more about the world's most popular project management framework - PRINCE2.

If you are from the UK you might already know about PRINCE2, or might even have attended a PRINCE2 training course. If you are outside of the UK, you might already be familiar with the US-based Project Management Institute's (PMI's) PMBoK. Whilst there are similarities and overlap between the two frameworks/methods, there are also many differences.

I personally have used PRINCE2 for many years and I have delivered PRINCE2 training courses in 3 different continents.

PRINCE2 has grown in popularity immensely over the last 10 years and it becoming more widely known and used outside of the UK, which is where PRINCE2 started.

Whilst PRINCE2 started out as a government project management framework, it is now widely used by non-governmental organizations such as the United Nations and NATO, and increasingly by private sector organizations as well.

This web site currently provides a basic summary of the main chapters in the official PRINCE2 manual (Managing Successful Projects using PRINCE2).

I hope you find it useful.
