The Difference between PMP & PRINCE2
PMP Training has taken the world by storm and is now being taken by thousands of professionals around the world. PMP; project management professional is taking over the world of project management one day at a time. But many want to know the difference between PMP and PRINCE2 as both are world renowned project management methods.
Whenever project management is being talked of two names will come to mind; PMP and PRINCE2. Whilst PMP was developed by PMI – a non for profit organisation based in the US whilst the PRINCE2 certification is managed by OGC in the UK both are crucial to work of project management.
PMP is more focused on the various tools and techniques which are used to develop individual capabilities within project management. Thus PMP is greatly concerned with the development of individual skills needed by project managers in order to carry out the projects and be a success. However, to take the PMP certification, a great deal of experience and training is required. This is different for PRINCE2.
PRINCE2 is known for developing a whole organisation and its management or projects. In order to control projects efficiently PRINCE2 develops a business objective which is presented through a business case. This business case will look at the justification for the project; if this justification is no longer valid then the project will be stopped immediately. The business case is updated regularly throughout the project life cycle and is critical to the project’s success.
Thus, both PMP and PRINCE2 play a crucial role in the world of project management and both provide successful projects if used correctly.
