Why do we need something like

How does work?

Is a substitute for PMBOK® Guide and PRINCE2®

No. We consider the PMBOK Guide and PRINCE2 as the fundamental resources for project management, and as a simplified approach for small and simple projects. Those fundamental standards are still your guide to scale and tailor

Standing on the shoulders of giants doesn't try to reinvent the wheel. It's primarily based on PRINCE2® and PMBOK® Guide, and benefits from other frameworks such as XP (eXtreme Programming), DSDM®, and Scrum.

Down to Earth is a down-to-earth method you can really use.
The fundamental standards are invaluable, but too complex for normal projects that most people just can't use them.

Fully Integrated is a fully integrated package of methodology, practices, and tools. You don't need to worry about finding proper techniques for your project, or find out how you can use normal pieces of software such as Excel to handle PM activities; everything is ready for you.

People-Oriented recognizes that the primary problem in most projects is the human aspects, and therefore addresses them carefully, instead of limiting itself to a mechanical process.

Perfect is the enemy of good-enough. tries to bring 80% of the perfect PM system by only 20% of the effort. If you aim for the perfect, you'll just give up. 

Multi-Purpose is suitable for most small and medium size projects in a variety of industries. Basically, it's for normal projects most of us are dealing with daily. 

Extendable uses a minimal core, with optional Addons that make certain parts (e.g. risk management) more advanced. There are also Themes that make is easier to use it in certain industries.
