PRINCE2 in bullet points

PRINCE2 has six (06) Project tolerances:

  • Cost : Cost tolerances are applied as either a percentage or a cash amount against the planned budget.
  • Time : A time tolerance is the amount to which you can be over or under against your project completion dates. 
  • Scope : Scope tolerance is measured as an agreed variation from the product description, and any potential variation should be documented in the product breakdown structure.
  • Benefit : Benefit tolerances are defined as a range and will be part of the project’s business case.
  • Risk : Each risk should have an impact attached to it, and risk tolerance covers the aggregate impact of the project’s risk portfolio.
  • Quality : Quality tolerances are targets that define acceptable performance for a product, and are documented in the product descriptions.

Tolerances can be set for the project, for a stage and also at work package level, so they can become very detailed.

  • Continued business justification
  • Learn from experience
