The new 2017 edition publication is the manual from which the syllabus and the examinations are set and supports the new updated PRINCE2 certification for both Foundation and Practitioner examinations.
The 2nd impression of the 6th edition of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 (2017) includes, in response to feedback on the 1st impression, a range of minor amendments to improve the overall quality of the guidance. None of these changes have any impact on the PRINCE2 foundation or practitioner examinations.
The changes to the guidance include:
- Clearer application of terms ‘accountable’ and ‘responsible’ throughout
- Amendment to the glossary definition of ‘quality assurance’ and related body text
- Improved consistency between terms ‘project product(s)’ and ‘project’s product(s)
- Clarification of text relating to roles within Ops and Maintenance.
