With a new update to the PRINCE2® syllabus in the 2017 version, there comes a new manual to accommodate those changes, and we have the latest manual available to you while you study your PRINCE2® 2017 course either in-class, online or in our blended option.

Purchasing the PRINCE2® manual is vital for new or aspiring project managers, it provides a clear understanding of the PRINCE2® methodology and is always available to you, should you need to refer to it at any time.

The PRINCE2® manual is also allowed to be taken into the Practitioner level examination, which will give you the best chance of passing the exam and getting the all-important PRINCE2® Practitioner status.

The updated 2017 guidance places a strong emphasis on the scalability and flexibility of the method and on how to best tailor it to the complexity and specific requirements of a project.

Changes in the new syllabus will be followed in the manual update, you will benefit from having an increased emphasis on tailoring PRINCE2® to the needs of organisations and a varied range of project environments.

The familiar PRINCE2® structure of seven principles, themes and processes has remained consistent throughout, but there is a greater link between the themes and principles than was previously established.


The PRINCE2® manual is part of the Global Best Practice suite, and can help you to organise your projects and services with precision and efficiency. This latest edition of the manual, replacing the 2009 edition, is 400 pages of in-depth material that can be referred to in study, in the Practitioner exam and in your career once you have gained the qualification.


  • Starting Up a Project
  • Directing a Project
  • Initiating a Project
  • Controlling a Stage
  • Managing Product Delivery
  • Managing Stage Boundary
  • Closing a Project

The PRINCE2® manual will also give you guidance into the more general skills of project management, including soft skills, leadership and management qualities that are required to effectively carry out the role.


Once you have completed the PRINCE2® course and achieved Practitioner status you will be able to enter the project management industry, an industry which is currently witnessing massive growth and can provide potentially lucrative salaries depending on the qualifications you have.

Project management is a key role in many industries including construction, engineering, manufacturing and finance.

By 2027, in 11 countries employers will need nearly 88million individuals working in project management-oriented roles and now there is a shortage of qualified talent to fulfil these roles. This talent gap could result in a potential loss of $208billion through 2027 for the 11 countries analysed. It is predicted that on an annual basis, employers will need to fill 2.2million project-oriented roles to effectively plug the talent shortage.

Not only will you be qualified to fill this talent gap, but you will be able to reap the financial rewards with project management-oriented occupations earning double the amount than a non-project management-oriented occupation would.
