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
