    PRINCE2®

    PRINCE2 is an acronym for Projects in Controlled Environments.  

    In 1989, the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA), UK started using PROMPT II as a UK Government standard for IT projects. It was then nicknamed as PRINCE for PROMPT II IN the CCTA Environment. Later in 1996, a general project management methodology named PRINCE2 was released that had themes and processes. 

    PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that helps the project managers in delivering projects in the given time and budget. It involves dividing the project and tasks into small stages. It focuses on product deliveries instead of activities.  

    Originally, this methodology was developed as a standard for IT projects by the UK government. Today, this methodology is used for different projects by different industries across both private and public sectors. 

    AXELOS is the governing body of PRINCE2 that conducts training and provides certification. 

    There are no specific figures for the number of certified PRINCE2 Project managers in the world. 

    PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that provides control over the project by stipulating the beginning, middle, and end of the project in an organized manner. It is used by different public and private industries across the globe for different projects. 

    The PRINCE2 framework consists of the following 4 elements: 

    • Themes 
    • Processes 
    • Principles 
    • Adaptation 

    PRINCE2 methodology involves the following themes:  

    • 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® (Projects In Controlled Environments) is a project management methodology that divided the project into small manageable and controllable parts. 

    Here is how PRINCE2 solves project management issues: 

    • Identify the threats, risks, and opportunities 
    • Determine the solution for the challenges 

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

    • Certification renewal through MyPRINCE2 
    • Using approaches and references for project management 
    • Using processes and administration rationally through examples, suggestions, and warnings 
    • Reconstructing the themes guidance 
    • Focusing on the connection between themes and principles 
    • More focus on the principles of PRINCE2 

    The reasons behind the PRINCE2 6th Edition updates were: 

    • Keeping up with new technological advancements 
    • Feedback from experts 

    According to a report by PMI, there will be 87.7 million project management jobs by 2027. This is why project management is one of the most lucrative career options right now.

    • Create a time table 
    • Dedicate a few hours for studying every day
