PRINCE2® 7 Foundation

PRINCE2®7 Foundation provides a compelling introduction to the PRINCE2® global best practice method.

PRINCE2 is a globally  recognized and established project management method that offers a structured, scalable, and tailorable approach to project management. Its focus on governance, risk management, and benefits realization sets it apart from other qualifications. By integrating agile concepts and emphasizing tailoring, the new PRINCE2 is even more adaptable to diverse project environments.

PRINCE2 7 addresses changes in the project management sector and adapts to evolving working practices and technologies. 

Key Updates for Emboldening Success:

  1. Central Focus on People Management, recognising the importance of human capital in project success.
  2. Enhanced Flexibility and Customization, adapting to the unique requirements of each project, across sectors.
  3. Embracing Digital and Data Management, equipping you with the right tools to keep your projects up to date in the digital era.
  4. Integration of Sustainability into Project Performance, aligning projects with environmental and social responsibility goals.
  5. Compatibility with Agile, Lean, and ITIL, enhancing overall project performance.
  6. Designed for all professionals, including aspiring or experienced project managers, using simplified language and content which makes it more accessible to all.

What experts say

"PRINCE2 needs to work for 'occasional' project managers as much as the project manager by choice."
Andy Murray, lead editor - PRINCE2 7


"There is no silver bullet when it comes to project delivery. Whether you choose agile, waterfall or a hybrid of the two, PRINCE2 7 will accommodate this and guide your decision."

Henny Portman, co-author - PRINCE2 7


"We’ve ensured that this part of PRINCE2 7 is much more practicable: it’s designed for use by real project teams facing real-world challenges."
Brad Bigelow, co-author - PRINCE2 7

Today there are no minimum requirements for a PRINCE2 project. Instead, there are simply the principles and agreed tolerances, so you are freer to make your own decisions and find your own solutions."
Tanja van den Akker - co-author, PRINCE2 7

"As PRINCE2 7 now highlights it’s about working with the team you actually have and adapting processes to them, not the other way. This takes less energy and is more likely to work."
Jo Lucas, co-author - PRINCE2 7
