PRINCE2 Information

What is PRINCE2?PRINCE2 Training Information 

PRINCE2 (PRrojects IN Controlled Environments) is a method that tackles effective project management through four collective elements of principles, themes, processes and the project itself. The 7 principles of PRINCE2 are the regulatory requirements and good practices which determine whether the project is genuinely being achieved by using the PRINCE2 Methodology.

There are seven principles of PRINCE2 and these are: 

  1. Continued business justification.
  2. Learn from experience.
  3. Defined roles and responsibilities.
  4. Manage by stages.
  5. Manage by Exception.
  6. Focus on products.
  7. Tailor to suit the project environment.

Unless all of the principles are applied to a project it is not a PRINCE2 Project. By the application of the seven principles of PRINCE2, you will be able to ask yourself is there a justifiable reason for starting the project that will remain consistent throughout the duration. By doing this you're creating the environment which you can control through continually seeking and drawing on lessons learned from previous work.

Not only should the PRINCE2 project team have a clear organisational structure you will need to make sure all the right people are involved for the right tasks. PRINCE2 projects should be planned, monitored and controlled on a stage-by-stage basis, also the projects should have defined acceptances for each project to create the limits of delegated authority. 

PRINCE2 projects focus on the product definition, delivery and quality requirements which will help tailor the project to suit the environment, size, complexity, importance, capability and risk of the PRINCE2 project.

PRINCE2 themes describe different aspects of project management that must be addressed in parallel throughout the project.

The seven themes of PRINCE2 Training are: 

  1. Business case
  2. Organization
  3. Quality
  4. Plans
  5. Risk
  6. Change
  7. Progress

These themes clarify the precise handling required by PRINCE2 for numerous project management disciplines and why they are essential. PRINCE2 Processes, these are described as the steps of the project lifecycle. From getting the PRINCE2 project started to project termination, each process provides a list of specifications of suggested actions, products and related accountabilities. 

The PRINCE2 processes are: 

  1. Starting up a project.
  2. Directing a project.
  3. Initiating a project.
  4. Controlling a stage.
  5. Managing product delivery.
  6. Managing stage boundaries.
  7. Closing a project.

Use of the PRINCE2 Processes through the product Lifecycle: 

PRINCE2 Processes


Tailoring PRINCE2 to the Project Environment well help organisations to adjust PRINCE2 to specific circumstances of the project. PRINCE2 is not to be used as a 'one size fits all' methodology, however using this methodology correctly increases the chances of tailoring the PRINCE2 framework to any style or scope of a project.


What is the PRINCE2 Exam?

There are several levels of examinations with PRINCE2 and Foundation is the first of the two examinations that you are required to pass. The next examination is the Practitioner exam which must be passed after completing the Foundation exam. These PRINCE2 exams are designed to test whether the candidate has the skills required to become an effective member of a project management team.

How long does PRINCE2 last?

The PRINCE2 Foundation certification has no defined period and will never expire or need to be renewed. This doesn’t apply to the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification though as this has to be renewed within 5 years or else the candidate will lose his Registered Practitioner status.

PRINCE2 Case Study

PRINCE2® training 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 training.

By the end of the project in 2012, everyone involved was fully supportive of the PRINCE2® methodologies, 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® techniques.
