  • The adoption of PRINCE2® across a company is embedding not tailoring.

General approach to PRINCE2®

  • Tailoring does not omit elements because PRINCE2® is a web of elements
  • It’s more about the adaptation of the method to external and project factors, so you don’t overburden the project but still provide the right level of control.
  • It’s about applying the method with grace and ease
