According to the study, each fourth user companies already has experience with this project management method. In another 31 percent of the surveyed companies, project managers have at least theoretical knowledge for this. However, 29 percent of Prince2 heard only, without a corresponding technical knowledge to have.
In every seventh case, this process model is not even known yet. However it will not stick with it, because to be carried out according to the findings of the Serview study soon much more IT projects based on Prince2. “38 percent of respondents plan that they are this method in each case” more intense than so far want to devote.

Despite the already considerable acceptance this topic in public discussion finds little room”he wonders and sees clear parallels to ITIL. Also this rulebook had spread already in practice, before it found a larger presence in the specialized media”, the Advisor looks back. However, cross misses also an organized formation of opinion to Prince2 in the market. It must make thoughtful, if Project Manager of this method give good grades and she found a growing distribution, but via the search engines almost only seminars on this topic can be found”, it problematized.
