The flexibility in the application of the themes may vary, from being strictly defined and specific to allowing the project management team a wide range of discretion in how they implement each theme.
All seven themes must be considered in a project, but their implementation should be adapted to the risk, size, characteristics, complexity, or simplicity of the project in question, always making sure that any required minimum standards specified in a theme are met.
A tailored PRINCE2 Theme should reflect any tailoring of the processes and terminology.
Customizing a theme does not necessarily involve changing the PRINCE2 theme itself. In most cases, the themes are implemented through the project’s risk, quality, change control, and communication management strategies.
These procedures should outline how the themes are implemented in practice for that specific project.
The level of control needed will affect the level of formality and the frequency of monitoring, reviewing, and reporting.
When implementing the themes, consider risk and any relevant external factors, such as corporate, portfolio, program, and customer policies and standards, and incorporate them into the project’s management approach, as illustrated in the following graphic:

The manual for each theme includes recommendations for various customization options for implementing the theme in practice, along with suggestions on how to handle some common scenarios.
Customization allows the PRINCE2 themes to be adapted to create appropriate procedures and controls, as long as:
Each themed chapter has the following structure:
