In January 2017 our partners and owners of PRINCE2®, AXELOS, announced the upcoming arrival of updated PRINCE2® guidance and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. Together, these form the PRINCE2 2017 update and represent the first major revision of PRINCE2 since 2009. Below is a video (from AXELOS) introducing the update:
The PRINCE2 update will see a new edition of the PRINCE2 manual (which is available for pre-order), plus updated training materials and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. These will be launched in mid-2017. The update is seen as evolutionary and new manual has:
- Stronger emphasis on tailoring.
- Guidance throughout the book on how to tailor.
- More linkage between the themes and Principles.
- More guidance through tailoring on how to use PRINCE2 in the environment.
We will bring more updates as they come.
