Benefits of PRINCE2

Promotes consistency of project work and the ability to reuse project assets; it also facilitates staff mobility and reduces the impact of personnel changes/handovers.

  • Is an invaluable diagnostic tool, facilitating the assurance and assessment of project work, troubleshooting and audits.
  • Plans are carefully designed to meet the needs of the different levels in the management group, improving communication and control.
  • 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.
  • Defines a thorough but economical structure of reports.
  • Ensures that stakeholders (including sponsors and resource providers) are properly represented in planning and decision making.
