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.

Why positive stress and organisational skills are essential in the business world

When organisations attempt to implement theory into action, that’s where a lot of planning is needed to carefully apply something into the real thing.

Let’s take ITIL for example. ITIL stands for ‘Information Technology Infrastructure Library’ and it is a framework for delivering and improving IT services. It has a lot of benefits such as providing guidance for organisations on how to use IT as a strategic tool and providing a ‘real world’ insight, but it can also require a lot of planning. There’s a lot of people who don’t really know how to even begin to get organised, but without it, people can get really stressed out and especially when it comes to your company, if you want to perform well and get great results then you’ll have to start thinking about your organisational skills sooner or later.
ITIL looks at the ‘where are we now’ and ‘where do we want to be’ as well as ‘how do we get there’, so in order to get from A to B you can imagine this wouldn’t really be possible without coming up with some sort of plan then keeping track of it in order to answer the ‘did we get there?’ question. Once you have it all figured out, this is not where the planning stops. If you manage to succeed, you should be looking at ‘how do we keep the momntum going?’ in order to make sure you keep up the good work that’s bringing you profit and your goals are reached.
 

Managing all of this can sometimes get overwhelming therefore people often find themselves stressed, especially if they struggle to stay organised and lack the time management skills. Stress is often viewed as an enemy as it gives us unpleasant physical and mental feelings and it can be really harmful in its long-term. Many people when stressed get even more stressed at the fact that they’re stressed and end up being in their worry loop. This is why a lot of people try to get rid of stress but wouldn’t it be great if changing how you think about stress made you healthier? Well apparently it’s possible! Research from Harvard has found that reframing stress as helpful rather than harmful can improve performance and reverse the physiological changes brought about by stress. People have experienced the side effects of stress, if they also believed that stress is harmful. However, people who believed that stress is good, remained healthy. There’s a really good quote that applies by Hamlet saying “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so”. When you choose to view your stress response as helpful, you create the biology of courage.
So now if you think about it, when faced with some amount of stress, instead of worrying more which only makes us unhealthy as well as makes us procrastinate to avoid the load on our shoulders, we can use stress as a positive factor as it’s only trying to help us out in tough situations and motivate us to take action. If we think this way, we’ll feel motivated as well as determined to tackle the issue with twice as much power and courage than before. Once you’re feeling motivated, you can work on organising your work as it will make it much easier to achieve future success and avoid stress in general.

Life is full of stressful and exciting situations whether it’s at work or in your personal life, but if you stay organised and become friends with stress, it can do you a lot more good than bad. Those who experienced high stress but didn’t believe it to be harmful were at the lowest risk of dying – even lower than people who didn’t experience a lot of stress. So just focus your mind on the positives of stress, make the use of all that energy and courage and you’ll be on your way to reaching those goals you’ve been putting off but always dreamed of.

It is a true learning academy! When I initially booked my seat on the PRINCE2 course I thought it would have been a one class room thing, it was actually a whole floor full of classes with different professional courses. The way they managed it was very professional and accurate. I was more worried about their choice of tutors. The person that gave us the course was very professional and aware of the course content. The way he delivered the course just perfect and couldn't get better. I'll definitely book my next course there.

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 had a really brilliant trainer too. I would recommend this course to anyone! It was excellent - very professionally organised and efficiently delivered. Thank you!

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.
4.923
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.
