PRINCE2 2017 “at a glance”: Process Flow Diagram Updated to NEW Version

PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environment) is a structured method for the effective and efficient management of projects. It is a generic, best-practice approach for the management of all types of projects and it has become the de facto standard for organising, managing and controlling projects globally.

The PRINCE2 process map is always one of the most downloaded documents from QRP International’s download area: this graphic view of the PRINCE2 process involved within a project is a useful and relevant tool for:

  • Project managers: anyone who is applying PRINCE2 at work would benefit from having a clear and graphic overview of the method.
  • Course delegates: QRP International provides an A3 Process Map version as part of the training material during our courses, both classroom and distance learning.

PRINCE2 2017: a Renewed Process Map, updated to NEW Version

PRINCE2 is firmly established as the world’s most practiced method for project management and is globally recognized for delivering successful projects. In July 2017 AXELOS released the first major update to PRINCE2 since 2009, with the 2017 version of the method: this brings along a new PRINCE2 guidance and new Foundation and Practitioner examinations.

The 2017 update of PRINCE2 builds on the proven strength of PRINCE2, so the following key elements remain unchanged:

  • 7 Processes forming the project management
  • 7 Principles forming the basis of good method of managing projects
  • 7 Themes, knowledge areas which support specific key areas of project management

The purpose of the updated version is to better respond to current imperatives for flexibility and agility, and the new guidance wants to do so with a renewed focus on the importance of tailoring.

The PRINCE2 Process Flow Diagram is a graphical ‘at a glance’ representation of all the PRINCE2 processes and how they fit together and it shows all the processes involved in running a PRINCE2 project from start to finish.  

The QRP International’s PRIN​CE2 Process map does not show only all the processes and how each stage integrates with the others but also what action needs to be taken for each process, which are the important products, documents or information to deliver during the stage​ for each management level​​ (Team Manager, Project Manager, Project Board).

Looks complicated but it’s not! This process map is a strong asset during your PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course and an helpful reference ​once back in the office​ as a project manager.
