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.

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!
