- Greater clarity on the link between the themes and principles
- Increased emphasis on tailoring to take account different environments such as complex commercial projects and those using Agile techniques

What is PRINCE2®?
PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments 2) is a methodology that prioritises control, organisation, quality, reliability and efficiency.
It was originally derived from the government standard of IT project management methodology known as PROMPT II, and was then developed and used outside of the industry after being redefined for more general project management. The UK Government now adopt PRINCE2® methodology in several departments.
Since then, PRINCE2® has become one of the most popular methodologies in the world, over 1,000,000 people have now taken their exams.
