All seven themes must be applied in a project but they should be tailored according to the scale, nature and complexity of the project concerned.
Themes can be tailored ‘up’ or ‘down’, i.e. additional detailed documentation and process discipline can be introduced for complex or high-risk projects, whereas concise bullet-point presentations and more informal processes may be adequate for simple, low-risk projects.
Each of the themes chapters are structured as follows:
Why it is important to the successful delivery of the project
Terms and definitions used
The specific treatment of the particular aspect of project management required for the PRINCE2 processes to be fully effective
Specific to the key theme for each PRINCE2 role.
PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries.
