  • Initiating a Project– identify the products that will be produced; plan the project; set up controls and files
  • Controlling a Stage– activities performed by the project manager on a day to day basis to manage a stage
  • Managing Product Delivery– products are developed and quality is reviewed
  • Managing Stage Boundaries– create all stage and exception plans
  • Closing a Project– formal customer sign off; capture outstanding issues for future reference

 

 

 

PRINCE2® themes 
Each of the 7 PRINCE2® themes of a project and how they are used by the PRINCE2® processes:

  • Business Case– A PRINCE2 Business Case drives all decision-making in the project.
  • Organization– The Organization theme defines and establishes project roles and responsibilities for a PRINCE2 project.
  • Quality– In PRINCE2, quality focuses on ensuring that the project’s products are fit for purpose.
  • Plans– Plans are the vehicle used to define how, where and by whom the project’s products will be delivered.
  • Risk– PRINCE2 looks at risks relative to the project’s objectives.
  • Change– The Change theme in PRINCE2 encompasses configuration management, issue management and change control.
