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 as a standard embodies established and proven best practice in project management. It navigates you through all the essentials for running a successful project. PRINCE2 is the world’s most practiced project management methodology, with translations of the method available in 18 languages.

Why select PRINCE2 for your projects?

Because it is easy to use, you can adapt it to your needs and to your project. PRINCE2 is a internationally used and recognised project management method. PRINCE2 provides a methodology that delivers increased agility, efficiencies whilst reducing costs, plus many more compelling organisational reasons to select it as your controlling solution for your organisation and project managers.

Because PRINCE2 provides a greater control of resources and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively, its appeal extends far beyond project management specialists to directors and executive board members. PRINCE2 uses stages and tolerances as its major elements of control. Tolerances allow for a management by exception approach, i.e. only involving the project board for making decisions when the project tolerances have been exceeded. Stages are used to keep the management of project appropriately supervised and documented for those directly involved, for example the project board members and the project manager. The essential components of each stage of the project are described from start to finish.

So if you are an inspiring or experienced project manager investment in PRINCE2 training is a great asset. Through our training solutions we have enabled many professionals to accelerate their careers and increase their earning potential with our certification programs.

How it works

Processes within PRINCE2 are designed to adapt to projects of any size and take you from planning the project to delivering the product.

The PRINCE2 method is easy to learn and embodies established and proven best practice from a wide crosssection of organisations who have contributed to its evolution since the 1980s. By adopting PRINCE2 as your project management method, businesses can benefit from lessons learned by other organisations over the last few decades.

The PRINCE2 method addresses project management through the four integrated elements of principles, themes, processes and the project environment. The PRINCE2 methodology can be shown by the following diagram:
