PRINCE2®

PRINCE2 stands for Projects in Controlled Environments.  

In 1989, the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA), located in UK, adopted PROMPT for managing its IT projects. It was created as a UK government standard. Here, it was nicknamed as PRINCE. Later, in 1996, PRINCE2 was released as a project management methodology. 

With the PRINCE2 methodology, all the projects can be carried out in a given budget and time. All the tasks are divided into stages, and instead of activities the focus is kept on product delivery. The elements of the methodology are: 

  • Themes 
  • Principles 
  • Processes 
  • Adaptation 

PRINCE2 project management methodology is used by several industries, public and private, across the globe to help manage their project efficiently.  

AXELOS governs the PRINCE2 certification. This is responsible for conducting training and certification exams. All PRINCE2 certifications will have AXELOS logo on it. 

There are no specific figures for this.  

PRINCE2 methodology is used for project management by the public and private sector industries. It is responsible for stimulating the beginning, middle and end of the project in an organized and controlled manner. 

The framework of PRINCE2 includes the following elements: 

  • Themes 
  • Principles 
  • Processes 
  • Adaptation 

Here are the themes of PRINCE2:  

  • Business case 
  • Organizations 
  • Quality 
  • Plans 
  • Risk  
  • Change  
  • Progress  

Here are the 7 processes of PRINCE2: 

  1. Starting Up a project 
  2. Initiating a project  
  3. Directing a project  
  4. Controlling a Stage   
  5. Managing Product Delivery   
  6. Managing Stage Boundaries 
  7. Closing a project 

PRINCE2 manages projects by dividing them into small manageable and controllable parts. It was created by the UK government as a standard for the IT projects. 

You can identify the opportunities, risks, and threats in a project using the PRINCE2 methodology and resolve project management issues. PRINCE2 also offers solutions for all challenges. 

Here are the main changes made in the PRINCE2 6th Edition update: 

  • PRINCE2 principles 
  • Connection between themes and principles 
  • Guidance of themes to assist certain models 
  • Suggestions, warning and examples to rationally utilize the processes and administration 
  • Certification renewal through MyPRINCE2 
  • Use of approaches and references 

The PRINCE2 6th Edition was updated after taking into consideration the feedback from experts and to keep up with the latest technology. 

Project managers are in high demand right now. And this demand is only going to increase in the future. According to a report by PMO, by 2027, there will be about 87.7 million jobs in the project management field making it a lucrative career option. 

Here is what you need to do to undertake self-study for PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Exams: 

  • Create a timetable where you dedicate certain hours for study each day
