PRINCE2®

PRINCE2 is an acronym for Projects in Controlled Environments.

The methodology was first adopted in 1989 by the Central computer and telecommunications agency, situated in the UK. It was created as the standard for IT projects by the UK government. It was then named as PRINCE. Then, in 1996, another version of the project management methodology was released named as PRINCE2. 

PRINCE2 methodology helps in dividing the project into smaller tasks so that it can be completed in a given time and budget. The focus is maintained on product delivery instead of activities. The following elements help in implementing this methodology: 

  • Principles 
  • Processes
  • Themes 
  • Adaptation 

Several organizations in public, as well as private sector, use the PRINCE2 project management methodology for helping the project managers in developing and managing projects efficiently. 

AXELOS is the governing body of PRINCE2 certification. It conducts the certification exams and also provides the required training. 

No specific figures are available for the PRINCE2 certified Project Managers. 

PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that ensures controlled and organized the execution of the start, middle and end of the project.

  5. Managing Product Delivery   
  6. Managing Stage Boundaries

  • References and approaches usage 
  • Examples, warning, and suggestions for utilizing the administration and processes rationally
