What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based methodology for project management. Because it is generic, it is flexible enough to be tailored to any project or any organisation, and because it is a best practice solution, it has been proven to work.

PRINCE2 is managed by AXELOS, a leading worldwide best practice methodology provider. It is used extensively by the UK government, as well as in private businesses such as the telecommunications company Orange.

 

Case Study

PRINCE2 has been successfully used in a project to expand the port of Rotterdam.

In the 2000s, the port of Rotterdam was one of the busiest ports in the world and was running out of space. The answer was to expand the port outwards towards the North Sea, in a project called “Maasvlakte 2”.

A project management consultancy called Ambition Group, led by Dr Richard Moret, recommended PRINCE2 as a method of managing the project, but the board were unsuitable of its suitability for a project of Maasvlakte’s size. The Project Director decided to test PRINCE2 by using it in the first stage of the project: the project initiation.

Initially, PRINCE2 was met by resistance from those staff who felt they already knew how to do project management. By meeting with them weekly and working with them closely, Dr Moret managed to smoothly introduce PRINCE2, and everyone quickly started to understand the benefits of PRINCE2.

By the end of the project in 2012, everyone involved was fully supportive of PRINCE2, and it was used to manage the entire project. The project was delivered on time and within budget thanks to the rigorous governance provided by the PRINCE2 methodology.

I recently attended a PRINCE2 training course for a full week - it was brilliant - there was a lot to take in and lots of homework (every night) but it was worth every penny.

I participated in the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course and was very happy with the whole process. I received pre course material just after booking the course, with a comprehensive description of the process and the work required before and during the course. The material also included a daily schedule for the course and exam-related questions. The training was performed by a professional tutor who made sure everyone was up to speed at all times. He also made us work together in groups, so we got to know each other a little. I was very happy with the whole experience.

I attended the Prince 2 course run by the Knowledge Academy in Leeds in November 2011 and managed to achieve high marks due to the excellent tuition received on the course and the quality of the Knowledge Academy literature. I followed the instructions provided by the Knowledge Academy regarding pre course reading and this really prepared me for the intensive week ahead. All the other attendees were suitably impressed by the quality of tuition and the provision of course material. I have booked courses in MSP and M_o_R on the basis of the quality provided in the Prince 2 course.

With my previous project management experience, I thought the course would be ‘simple’. But it was definitely very intensive and proved truly beneficial to attend the training. Working with other participants sharing experience helped to expand my understanding. The course was delivered maintaining the integrity and intensity of the course; at the same time engaging and sharing the experience from the Trainer which was really useful.
4.920
The Knowledge Academy made the experience of going through intensive PRINCE2 training very clear and understandable from the initial booking. I found the course instructor not only helpful and insightful, but very easy to approach for additional help at the end of each session. I would absolutely return to The Knowledge Academy for my future training needs.
