PRINCE2 is a highly successful project management method. For those who are sitting PRINCE2 exams, or embarking on their first project, there's a lot to learn and remember. How do you capture the fundamental principles, the essential themes, and bring them to mind when you need them?

Too much information?

We realise that you have all the books you need about the PRINCE2 system. You don't need another to give you all the same information, just in different words. However, sometimes you could do with a summary or checklist, so you can recall exactly what you need, precisely when you need it.

Stay focused and achieve your goals

This pocket guide is designed to do just that. Written by a former Chief Examiner for PRINCE2, it contains all you need to prompt your memory at the crucial time. It is laid out in a clear and comprehensible format with helpful diagrams and tables, and will enable you to:

  • bring to mind the information you need, just when you need it
  • keep the key principles at the forefront of your mind
  • focus on what you are trying to achieve
  • follow the correct processes, in the right order
  • tailor the system to suit your needs and objectives
  • manage a successful project from beginning to end
  • add value to your business.
