The Prince principles

PRINCE2 principles are universal, self-explanatory and enable the project manager to achieve results.

• Pr1: Business Case In a PRINCE2 project, testing with reference to the Business Case happens continually.

• Pr2: Continuous learning PRINCE2 project teams learn from previous experiences (lessons learnt are identified and recorded during execution).

• Pr3: Roles and responsibilities PRINCE2 projects have predetermined and agreed roles and responsibilities within the project organisation, so that the executive, users and suppliers can feel that they are given recognition.

• Pr4: Manage by stages A PRINCE2 project is planned, assessed and managed on a stage-by-stage basis.

• Pr5: Management by Exception A PRINCE2 project is characterized by particular tolerances for all project objectives (time as well as budget and quality of the to be delivered products).

• Pr6: Product-based focus A PRINCE2 project focuses on the definition and delivery of products. The scope and quality criteria are of particular importance.

• Pr7: Tailor PRINCE2 can take account of variances in relation to the size, environment, complexity and importance of a project, the competences of the participants and the associated risks of a project.
