Course Introduction

PRINCE2® (or Projects IN Controlled Environments) is an adaptive based approach for effective project management. The Practitioner training techniques detail the growth of high-level management, organisation and control of a successful project. The main purposes of taking the PRINCE2® course involves:

  • Applying suitable stages to enforce flexibility to a project
  • Planning a product-based pathway
  • Identifying the implications of breaking a product down into adaptable stages
  • Outlining business validations
  • Pursuing business validations.

The structure of the PRINCE2® certification is a PeopleCert-accredited 2-day course, based on the new 2017 syllabus, designed to prepare delegates to pass the Practitioner examination. Learners will spend the first day preparing for the advanced 2-day course, before either taking it the following day or completing their online exam at a time convenient to the delegate.


Why should I acquire this PRINCE2® certification?

The PRINCE2® course has been developed to aid professionals. All sectors are moving at a rapid speed, which means projects must be completed efficiently and on time. Project managers are required in all sectors (technology, business, social, regulatory etc.). It is important that your project management strategy is constantly being improved and adapted to the needs of your team. There will be severe penalties if your business is failing to adapt to change.

It is true that PRINCE2® can be applied to any type of project, in almost any industry sector. The method of PRINCE2® is globally recognised. Project management professionals across the UK and the world work off of the basis of PRINCE2® as it provides a common vocabulary across the project management sector. The PRINCE2® project management course brings effective communication to any business whose employees are trained in the skill. PRINCE2® is not a 'one size fits all' solution, but it is a flexible framework that can readily be tailored to any type or size of a project.

The Benefits of PRINCE2®

The main benefit of training in PRINCE2® is that it provides an explicit recognition of project responsibilities, therefore it is extremely relevant to the role of the project manager. Those who undertake PRINCE2® training understand each other's roles and needs within workplaces. Within an organisation that is trained in PRINCE2® there is a defined structure for accountability, delegation, authority, and communication. The reason why PRINCE2® works so well is that it was driven by the feedback from end-users. Alongside this feedback, project management specialists and a review panel of 150 public and private sector organisations, helped to shape the course.


PRINCE2® Compatiblity with other Project Management Certifications

PRINCE2® is compatible with all other project management qualifications. The great thing about taking a PRINCE2® training course is that it provides the technical structure of the framework for a project. This is not the only skills you will walk away with, this PRINCE2® project management course complements other softer skills, that may have been learned on other qualifications or on the job.
