PRINCE2® is a process-based method for project management created by the UK government. Originating from the CCTA (the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency) in 1989 as the project management methodology PRINCE® (Projects IN Controlled Environments), PRINCE2® was created in 1996 as the second version of this guidance.
Designed originally as a management method for Government IT projects, PRINCE2® has since become a standard for project management used by companies and governments for a range of projects.
PRINCE2® is scalable, meaning it is adaptable to any size project, and as it has been created with input from a range of organisations around Europe, it is a best practice solution, meaning it has been agreed to work.
Division into Stages
Projects are divided into clearly-defined stages which are easy to control. Each stage, or process, includes activities to be accomplished as well as products to be delivered. These stages are designed to be easily manageable and controllable by the Project Board.
The methodology also focuses on business justification, so that projects only continue if they are deemed viable and of use to the business, eliminating wastage of time, resources and money on projects which are of no use or likely to fail.
PRINCE2® also clearly defines the structure of the project management team, ensuring everyone knows their roles and responsibilities at each stage, from project initiation to completion.
There are two qualifications to validate understanding of PRINCE2®: PRINCE2® Foundation and PRINCE2® Practitioner. We also do a PRINCE2® Overview course for those looking to gain a better idea of what PRINCE2® is and how it could benefit them, along with PRINCE2® Re-Registration, for PRINCE2® Practitioners to re-validate their knowledge.
PRINCE2® Foundation is an entry-level qualification which indicates the holder has knowledge of the main terminology used in PRINCE2®, along with its basic principles.
