PRINCE2® 7th Edition seeks to respond to changes that have taken place in the world and in the discipline of project management since the previous update in 2017.
The essence of PRINCE2 remains - with principles, practices (previously called themes), and a set of processes that comprise the lifecycle of a project. The 7th Edition has evolved to meet the demands of the digital revolution, the speed of change, the rise of Agile ways of working, and the increased volatility and uncertainty of all aspects of life. PRINCE2 7th Edition equips project managers with the tools, knowledge, and flexibility to effectively manage projects in today's dynamic environment. It provides guidance on integrating Agile practices, tailoring the method, focusing on benefits realisation, and offers practical case studies to support project managers in successfully delivering Agile and digital transformation projects.
