They form the heart of the best practice approach. The seven PRINCE project management principles . Ongoing Business Justification Ongoing business justification means that there must be a valid reason for starting the project. This reason must remain valid throughout the entire duration of the project. Learning from experience Learning from experience refers to the fact that empirical values are collected recorded and implemented throughout the project. Defined roles and responsibilities In addition a PRINCE project always has defined roles and responsibilities within an organizational structure in which corporate interests are also represented.
Control over management phases Controlling via management phases This means that the planning monitoring and control of the project is structured according to phases. Taxes according to the exception principle Controlling according to the exception principle is about defining certain tolerances for each PRINCE project which determine the respective framework for action. Product orientation In addition PRINCE is always geared towards the definition and delivery Specific Database of products within the framework of product orientation. The focus is on their quality requirements. Adaptation to the project environment Finally adapting to the project environment is about adapting PRINCE so that it meets the specific requirements of the project in every respect - for example in terms of its scope its environment its complexity and its importance.
However we have not yet reached the end of this. In addition to the seven principles PRINCE also has seven themes and seven processes. The seven themes - Business Case Organization Quality Plans Risk Change and Progress - are those aspects of project management that must be continuously addressed as a project is completed. The seven processes—preparing a project directing a project initiating a project controlling a phase managing product delivery managing a phase transition and closing a project—describe the step-by-step process from preparation to project completion.
