This publication provides a universally applicable project management method - the principles, processes and techniques that enable individuals and organisations to successfully deliver their projects within time, cost and quality constraints. Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 forms part of a pair of publications that are the result of the PRINCE2: 2009 Project to update the PRINCE2 guidance. Its companion is Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2. The title has been designed to be a role specific handbook for Project Managers, Team Managers and Project Support.
PRINCE2™ is extensively used in more than 150 countries around the world, and its take-up grows daily. It is widely considered as the leading method in project management, with in excess of 20,000 organizations already benefiting from its pioneering and trusted approach.
This updated guidance will help those running projects of any size and in any environment to effectively deliver what is required by appropriately managing the costs, timescales, quality, scope, risks and benefits. Its development has followed widespread consultation and draws upon real-life experiences in both public and private sector organizations.
Today, complex projects often involve several organizations working together in partnership or through contractual arrangements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2 provides a common language between organizations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it.
