  • who is responsible for tailoring and documenting
  • examples of different project environments
  • tailoring and embedding PRINCE2 in an organization

Furthermore, the distinction between tailoring, adopting and embedding is explained in more detail and there is guidance on how to adopt and embed PRINCE2 in an organization.
