Andy Murray was appointed before the rest of the authoring team for PRINCE2 Version 7. Much of the preliminary research was already completed by AXELOS and subsequently by People Cert. Upon Murray's involvement, a comprehensive dossier was already prepared for his examination. This preparation stage spanned nearly nine months. During this period, Murray and his team deliberated on the objectives and defined the scope of the update, contemplating whether it would be a minor refinement or a more significant revamp.
