PRINCE2 Processes

A process is a structured set of activities designed to accomplish a specific objective. PRINCE2 has activities for Starting Up a Project, running a project, and many others. It groups these into processes.

PRINCE2 is a process-based approach for project management. There are 7 processes that guide you through the project, and each provides a set of activities. These activities help to direct, manage and deliver a project, and are described in the PRINCE2 manual. Like any process, a PRINCE2 process takes one or more inputs, acts on them, and provides defined outputs.

The 7 PRINCE2 process are:

  • Starting Up a Project (SU)
  • Initiating a Project (IP)
  • Directing a Project (DP)
  • Controlling a Stage CS)
  • Managing Product Delivery (MP)
  • Managing a Stage Boundary (SB)
  • Closing a Project (CP)
