Benefits of Prince2 for Your Projects and Your Career

The PRINCE2® project management framework is used for many different kinds and sizes of projects across all sectors. It is recognised and utilised on a global scale, with particular allegiance from state agencies.

What makes this project management methodology so popular? Take a look at our top 7 benefits of PRINCE2®:

  • Reassuring Structure

    At first glance, PRINCE2® seems all about structure. It places great value on clearly defined roles and responsibilities, and utilises the pillars of 7 principles, 7 themes, and 7 processes to guide each project.
  • Liberating Flexibility

    With all that structure comes the ability to customise PRINCE2® to your business and to the requirements of a specific project. It’s also scalable, meaning you can use it effectively for projects of every size.
  • High Value Projects

    Continued Business Justification is the very first of PRINCE2® principles. No PRINCE2® project begins without evidence that it will deliver value to the organisation. Throughout the project, the team will keep a strong focus on the project deliverables.
  • A Common Language

    Everyone trained and certified in the PRINCE2® framework is familiar with the terminology used to refer to roles, processes, and stages during the project. Understanding this PRINCE2® language eliminates communication cross-wires and contributes to a smoother running, more efficient project.
  • Lower Risk, Greater Control

    Control is so vital to PRINCE2® projects, that it is included in the methodology name (PRINCE2® = PRojects IN a Controlled Environment). Every element related to this framework, whether part of the 7 Principles, 7 Themes, or 7 Processes, contributes to maintaining control of your project. Greater control lowers the risk and raises visibility at every stage.
  • Continuous Improvement

    PRINCE2® teams must reflect on the project throughout, and at the closing stage. The goal is to learn from both successes and failures, carrying the fresh knowledge into future projects.
  • Compatibility with Other Methodologies

    With the growth in popularity of Agile, Scrum, and other iterative approaches to project management, it’s reassuring to know that PRINCE2® works very well side by side with these frameworks.
