What Is PRINCE2? Principles, Aspects, Roles & Processes

PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that is mostly used in the UK, Australia and European countries. It focuses on managing resources and risks by dividing projects into smaller stages, defining roles and responsibilities, and using seven processes to manage the project life cycle. It is the UK government standard and is foreign to some outside of the United Kingdom, but there is still much to be gained from it. The main components of the PRINCE2 project management methodology are the Principles, Principles, Aspects, Roles and Responsibilities, Processes, and History.
PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that was first established in 1989 by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA). It is based on PROMPT, which was created in 1975 and used by the United Kingdom government for its information system projects. Seven principles are the basis for PRINCE2, including continued business justification, learn from experience, roles and responsibilities, and four levels of people in a project: corporate, project board, project manager and team. The business case is reviewed and revised throughout the life cycle of the project, and the lesson log is referred to throughout the project.
