PRINCE2®

The Gold Standard in Project Management

PRINCE2 DEFINED

WHAT IS PRINCE2?

PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, Project Managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants.

PRINCE2 isolates the management aspects of project work from the specialist contributions, such as design and construction. The specialist aspects of the project can be easily integrated with the PRINCE2 method, regardless of the delivery method, and, when used alongside PRINCE2, provide a secure overall framework for the project work.

PRINCE2 is generic and based on proven principles. Organizations adopting the method can substantially improve their organizational capability and maturity across various areas such as business change, construction, IT, mergers and acquisitions, research and product development.

The best practice is supported by the PRINCE2 certification scheme which provides different levels of certification for individuals interested in understanding or using the method.

Reference

“The course has been a real life experience. Through the case study approach we were able to complete a project using the PRINCE2 principles taught throughout the course. This has provided me with a solid base and was instrumental in me obtaining my position as a Cloud Project Coordinator at Ingram Micro Cloud. I absolutely recommend this course to everybody who is interested in acquiring a substantial knowledge about Project Management and the PRINCE2 method. The constant support and feedback really helps you understand the materials.”

CERTIFICATION

PRINCE2 Certification scheme

 

The PRINCE2 2017 certification scheme has two main levels, Foundation and Practitioner.

PRINCE2 Foundation Level introduces the PRINCE2 method. The Foundation certification aims to confirm that you know and understand the PRINCE2 method well enough to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The Foundation certification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner certification.

PRINCE2 Practitioner certification is for anyone who is managing projects as part of their role. This could be as part of a formal project management function or a role in which project management is an inherent part of day to day work. The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm whether you have sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the method in a range of different project environments and scenarios.

PRINCE2 Agile Foundation is suitable for anyone who works within an agile environment whether they're a project manager, project support or part of the wider project team. The certificate is designed to help professionals understand PRINCE2 governance requirements clearly and comprehensively, gain a broad range of knowledge of agile concepts and techniques including: Scrum, Kanban, Lean Start - up and Cynefin and explore the interface between PRINCE2 and agile ways of working.

PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification is for PRINCE2 project managers who require specific guidance on how to tailor PRINCE2 in an agile context or environment. PRINCE2 Agile enables practitioners to apply the project management principles of PRINCE2, whilst combining the flexibility and responsiveness of agile concepts such as Scrum and Kanban. The certification is aimed at all individuals and organizations involved with project, product and programme delivery and support.
