PRINCE2® is firmly established as the world’s most practised method for project management.

What is PRINCE2®?
PRINCE2® is a project management method used by businesses and individuals from a wide range of industries. It is an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments and is a processed-based qualification focusing on managing projects. It was first introduced in 1996 and was developed in consultation with over 150 European organisations who agreed on what they considered best practice within project management. It is used extensively by the UK government as a recognised method, but it is favoured by the private sector too. It is built upon seven principles, themes and processes that are functional in the real world. PRINCE2® is beneficial to both individuals and businesses, as the programme is fully customisable and can be tailored to each individual project you manage.
The course and qualification
PRINCE2® equips you with the tools and skills to successfully manage a project regardless of scale. Whether you manage small important projects or regularly take on multi-million-pound contracts, the principals are exactly the same. It is a flexible method that guides you through the essentials. It consists of two different qualification levels – Foundation and Practitioner. The Foundation level guides you through the essentials and provides detailed guidance on how to consistently deliver projects successfully. It focuses on timescales, budget, managing risk and overcoming any problems or issues you may encounter during your project. The next step is Practitioner level, which teaches you how to apply PRINCE2® at a higher level and how to tailor the principles, themes and processes to a specific project scenario.

Here is just one success story from a PRINCE2® student:
“The reason why I chose this course is that I just embarked on my career as a Business Data Analyst and I was looking for something that would increase my skill set, enhance my experience and push me to that next level. The tutors for PRINCE2® were excellent and the analogies he used made the information so easy to digest. The online platform is very user friendly and practical.”

How PRINCE2® changed the game
PRINCE2® changed how projects are managed forever. Rather than jumping in feet first, PRINCE2® focuses on dividing the project into manageable stages. These stages should be reasonable and flexible, allowing for greater control over the resources and more effective management of the project overall.
It focuses on structured project management and acts as a universal language for the world of project management. Effective project management is crucial to the survival of a business, and PRINCE2® provides a proven standard that everyone can work from. From the timeline of the project to the individuals who will be involved, everything should be justified and reviewed before any work begins.
