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.

PRINCE2® is a registered trade mark of AXELOS limited

Is Communication really the Key to being a Great Leader?

Ever heard the phrase ‘communication is key’? Of course you have – and the statement couldn’t be more true to life. Communication, after all, is central to our lives as human beings; without it the human race would be truly unable to function.

When it comes to business, communication becomes more important than ever. Be it through body language, the written word or direct speech, effective communication is crucial to the effective running of any company, and especially important between employers and employees.
If you are a manager then you need to be aware that effective communication is vital to outstanding leadership. You may think a manager should show strength and decision making prowess alone, however this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Take pack animals; in a pack of wild dogs there will always be a leader identified by the pack. However the leadership role isn’t determined by physical strength alone – it’s a considerably more complex process than that. Confidence, high energy and the ability to motivate and manage others is just as critical as strength and power – and in order to possess these qualities, communication skills are vital tools.

Great Leaders are Always Great Communicators
Imagine someone you admire as a leader: Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, even Beyoncé (queen of pop?). What do these people all have in common? The ability to communicate fantastically with their people, their followers and their fans. How do they spend the majority of their time? Interacting with people, making phone calls, speeches, presentations or doing interviews. A great leader is essentially the face of his company/organisation and therefore needs to present their brand in the best light possible. Leaders who can communicate with the general public in a way which is inspiring, thought provoking and encouraging always results in employees who want to work and commit to the organisation due to the fact they really believe in the company’s vision. Happy, well informed employees make for a prosperous, thriving business.

What makes a great communicator?
A great communicator is someone who can connect with their audience, understand business relationships and how best to foster them, and finally express their ideas and visions clearly and effectively.

Connecting With The People
- This is an essential element of leadership. Whether the connection is a formal one or a personal interaction, connecting with an audience, large or small, will enable you to instil in them your ideas for success.

Fostering Business Relationships
- These relationships are the bedrock of a successful business. If your communication skills allow you to effectively build ongoing relationships and trust, then you are well on your way to being the fantastic leader of a successful organisation. 

Effectively Expressing Ideas
- Being in a leadership role means you are always in the spotlight, with all eyes on you. Any miscommunications or badly communicated ideas can lead to serious issues within a team or company. Therefore effective written or verbal communication is vital to good leadership.

The Knowledge Academy has no shortage of fantastic communication skill based courses, which will have you well on your way to excelling in your managerial position if you already have one, or will get you one step closer to that leadership post you have your eye on. Good luck!

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 really enjoyed learning the PRINCE2 methodology with The Knowledge Academy. The trainer; Simon was experienced and knowledgeable on the subject and provided us with a new, fresh approach to project management.
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 have recently completed my Prince2 training with The Knowledge Academy in their London location and had a really good week. I had a trainer called Ray who was fantastic, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Prince2. He went through everything slowly ensuring we were all at the same pace. Thanks to him I passed the prince2 course first time!
Over all a professional supplier of the Prince2 seminar, with a competent and friendly trainer, who explains and shows the different theories in a manner where it is understandable for all people.
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.
The course was well organised the tutor was very knowledgeable and a good presenter.

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.
I will recommend TKA to any one wishing to take a Prince2 course. Their trainers were very good and the subject matter was well presented and real life examples was given. The advice was very good and the training environment was first class - I will recommend TKA to any one any day!

Thanks to The Knowledge Academy for an excellent course and service. The PRINCE2 course was really valuable, the trainer was very knowledgeable. I learned so much in one week, thank you!
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.
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.
