PRINCE2® stands as a beacon in the project management world. Its reputation for being a highly adaptable and structured methodology is why it's the preferred choice for many top-tier organizations like Barclays, BT, Rolls-Royce, and even monumental projects like London's 2012 Summer Olympics. Today, at Bilginç IT Academy, we're thrilled to introduce the next evolution of PRINCE2: the 7th Edition.


What Has Led to The Evolution of PRINCE2?

The landscape of project management is ever-changing. Technological advances, shifting attitudes towards environment and ethics, novel working patterns, and evolving regulations have all played a role in shaping PRINCE2's latest iteration. This update isn't just about staying current; it's a strategic move to ensure the methodology continues to be as tailorable and scalable as ever, ready to address modern challenges and predict those of the future.

What’s New in PRINCE2’s 7th Edition?

The 7th Edition builds upon the solid foundation of its predecessors, infusing fresh insights and simplifying its language for better accessibility. Here are the standout updates:

  • A clarifying introduction detailing the essence of a project and project management.
  • A new 'people integrated element'—now central to PRINCE2’s framework—interlocks seamlessly with the established 7 principles, practices, processes, and project context.
  • Four innovative management approaches incorporated into the Project Initiation Documentation (PID): 'change management approach', 'commercial management approach', 'data management approach', and the 'sustainability management approach'.
  • A pivotal new performance target highlighting 'sustainability', broadening the traditional scope that included aspects like benefits, costs, time, quality, and risk.

Why the Update?

As society and business landscapes shift, PRINCE2 adapts. There's an increasing emphasis on soft skills such as leadership, a domain addressed by the 'people integrated element'. From an organizational lens, this evolution fosters better collaboration across multifunctional project teams, refines communication strategies, deepens the understanding of stakeholder needs, and cultivates a culture where change isn't just implemented—it's embedded and realized holistically.
