PRINCE2® Overview

 1 Days

PRINCE2® is a structured management method that is applicable to projects of any size or complexity. It draws from the experience of hundreds of Project Managers and Consultants worldwide to provide a generic best practice framework for managing projects. The approach adopted by PRINCE2® is process-based, tailored and scalable. It structures projects into four elements: principles, themes, processes and the project environment. These four elements must be addressed in order to be considered a PRINCE2® project.

 

PRINCE2® is the most prevalent project management methodology in the UK, closely followed by Agile, APMP, and Scrum. As well as this, PRINCE2® is the second most utilised methodology in the world, beaten to the top spot only by Project Management Professional (PMP)®. These facts display the establishment of PRINCE2® as a universally applicable and highly regarded project management framework. Its heavy focus on productivity and exercising resources is for the purpose of boosting organisational ability and endurance when difficulties occur. The implementation of PRINCE2® can greatly enhance the likelihood of project success, and thus economic benefits.

 

PRINCE2® started out as PROMPT II (Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques), an early project management methodology adopted by the UK Government’s  Central Computer and Telecommunication Agency (CCTA) as a standard for IT project management. The CCTA changed the name of this method to “PRINCE” (Projects in Controlled Environments) in 1989. The second version, PRINCE2®, arrived in 1996 as the generic method we know today, with a further update arriving in 2009. Today, PRINCE2® is owned and maintained by AXELOS, a joint venture company created by the UK Government and Capita.

 

PRINCE2® 2017 Update

PRINCE2® has recently experienced an update. Early in 2017, due to feedback from PRINCE2® Practitioners, it was announced that the PRINCE2® syllabus would be revised and ready for implementation by July. The update utilises the same principles, themes, and processes, although the links between such principles and themes are clarified in more detail. Another essential area of the update involves the implementation of PRINCE2® structures to actual workplace circumstances. The revised version of the PRINCE2® syllabus aims to provide delegates with more extensive guidance regarding real-life methodology application. Furthermore, the format of all examinations have undergone minor modifications, and the teaching methods likewise.

The PRINCE2® certification programme covers all essential components of the project management methodology, from the basics to sample projects and beyond.

 

PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner

The Foundation and Practitioner training course is the most popular of the PRINCE2® certifications provided by The Knowledge Academy. It enables delegates to complete both Foundation and Practitioner qualifications together.

 

PRINCE2® Foundation

PRINCE2® Foundation is the entry level PRINCE2® certification. It provides an introduction to the principles and key terminology of PRINCE2®, and focuses on providing the holder with the necessary skills to work within a PRINCE2® project team.

 

PRINCE2® Practitioner

PRINCE2® Practitioner provides guidance for and confirms knowledge of how to apply PRINCE2® methodology to a given project scenario. Of particular focus is tailoring PRINCE2®  to the project environment. This specialist certification confirms the delegate’s ability to manage a full PRINCE2® project from start to finish, and is assessed in a special environment over a set number of days. The PRINCE2® Foundation is required in order to take the more advanced Practitioner level.

 

PRINCE2® Re-Registration

The PRINCE2® Re-Registration training course is for PRINCE2® Practitioners who need to renew their Practitioner certification, as these expire after a period of 3-5 years. Hence, the Re-Registration qualification provides delegates with the most recent PRINCE2® knowledge, and revisits areas that may be lacking in understanding.

 

PRINCE2® Exam Only

The Knowledge Academy also provides the PRINCE2® Foundation Exam Only and the PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam Only. They are for delegates who have engaged in their own study and wish to sit the exam. The exam can be sat online or within a classroom environment. It should be noted that if taking the exam only, the requirements remain the same - in order to take the Practitioner exam, the Foundation certification is needed.

As one of the most popular project management certifications in the world, PRINCE2® offers many benefits for individuals. PRINCE2® is a globally respected methodology which can be implemented by individuals in any industry, to a project of any size. A PRINCE2® certification enables individuals to boost their project management qualification portfolio and skill set. Consequently, individuals can enhance their employment opportunities and earning potential. It is possible for PRINCE2® Practitioners to earn an annual sum of around £50,000. In addition, individuals acquire extensive knowledge and understanding of how to apply the PRINCE2® methodology to lead projects to success.

The flexibility and relevance of the PRINCE2® methodology to such a large variety of industries and project types means it has many benefits for businesses. PRINCE2® ensures all employees are working towards the same objectives. This generates consensus and solidarity between team members, who adopt a common language and terminology, making certain that everyone is aware of their role and what they are accountable for. PRINCE2® also prioritises completing projects on time and within budget, which is highly valuable for businesses as this can maximise profit. Additionally, PRINCE2® embeds the significance of being prepared for any complications that may arise, and the delivery of quality.
