PRINCE2® Certification ( PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method and practitioner certification program.  used extensively by the UK Government and the private sector internationally. The methodology remains focused on the business case, and is product-based. PRINCE2 offers a structured way to organise the project management team, and places an emphasis on breaking the projects into manageable parts, adhering to standard project management rules.

 Key features of PRINCE2:

  • Focus on business justification
  • Defined organisation structure for the project management team
  • Product-based planning approach
  • Emphasis on dividing the project into manageable and controllable stages
  • Flexibility that can be applied at a level appropriate to the project.

PRINCE2 is designed to be applied generally to all types of project, be they construction, engineering, IT, business, financial or whatever.

Benefits to an organisation

For organisations, PRINCE2's formal recognition of responsibilities within a project, together with its focus on what a project is to deliver (the why, when and for whom) provides your organisation's projects with:

  • A common, consistent approach
  • A controlled and organised start, middle and end
  • Regular reviews of progress against plan
  • Assurance that the project continues to have a business justification.

 A 2007 PricewaterhouseCoopers survey found that "higher-performing projects are significantly more likely to be staffed with certified project managers"  PRINCE2 provides benefits to the managers and directors of a project and to an organisation, through the controllable use of resources and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively.

PRINCE2 embodies established and proven best practice in project management.  It is widely recognised and understood, providing a common language for all participants in a project.

 Benefits to an individual 

For an individual, a PRINCE2 certification will improve your career prospects and can help deliver job satisfaction by equipping them with the skills and insights to be an effective project manager.

 To get recognised in PRINCE2, an individual will need to achieve certification at either Foundation or Practitioner level.  Broadly, if you are involved in Projects in a supporting role (say in a marketing, administration or technical job), Foundation level may be adequate.  If generally you are leading projects then Practitioner is the level you at which you should aim.

PRINCE2® Courses

What is Prince2 Certification and How Beneficial It is? k

PRINCE2 is probably the most popular and skilled certification program offered. PRINCE2 applies to any industrial project. This system is usually understood and recognized because it offers an acknowledgment of project responsibilities, ensuring that all participants understand their roles and needs. As a result, PRINCE2 certification can be beneficial in both the public and private sectors.

Having a PRINCE2 certification allows professionals to improve their Project Management abilities. The goal of this certification is to prepare you to successfully manage projects. Because it employs a common language, systems, and guidelines, PRINCE2 enables you to manage funds and risks.

How to Get a Prince2 Certification? k

PRINCE2® certification comes in three varieties:

·        PRINCE2® Foundation

 In this certification, you'll learn about the PRINCE2® method and how to use it in a PRINCE2®-enabled environment with confidence. For the Practitioner certification, you must first earn the PRINCE2® Foundation credential.

·        PRINCE2® Practitioner

Those in project management who want to advance in their careers and improve their knowledge of the PRINCE2® Methodology should pursue this credential. The PRINCE2® Practitioner certification course measures a professional's ability to manage non-complex tasks throughout all workstreams.

·        PRINCE2® Agile

This credential is for project management professionals who have already earned their PRINCE2® credentials and want to learn more about how to apply agile methodology. This certification can be used in any industry, regardless of domain or size. It offers scalability and integration with the company's management processes.

However, the PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner certifications are sufficient to be identified as a PRINCE2® specialist in the business world. If you plan to continue PRINCE2® Agile certification, it will be the cherry on top.

Why Get Prince2 Certification? k

It equips you with the knowledge you need to be confident in your ability to manage projects successfully. This is because PRINCE2 employs a common language, systems, and procedures. This gives you more control over your resources and risks. The controls in PRINCE2 lead to fewer errors, but the lessons log teaches you and your team how to learn from them.

PRINCE2 advantages project managers and directors, as well as an organization, by allowing for more control over resources and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively. PRINCE2 represents well-established and tested best practices in project planning.

How Long is the Prince2 Certification Valid? k

AXELOS' accredited training organizations (ATOs) offer PRINCE2 online courses or self-study options across all certification stages. Accredited partners dictate the price for online training and exams.

What is Prince2 Training? k

It's a project management approach that's used in more than 150 countries. As a result of this process-based approach, it places a strong emphasis on organization and maintains complete control over the project throughout its lifecycle.

Project management experts consider PRINCE2® to be the industry standard. Project managers benefit from it because it enables them to complete projects on budget and schedule. When using the PRINCE2® methodology, projects often start with a well-thought-out plan. It gives the project a proper framework with a distinct beginning, middle, and end stages. It places a greater emphasis on the delivery of goods than on carrying out tasks. Upon completion of the project, all the loose ends are neatly tied together.

The PRINCE2 certifications can be obtained in one of two ways:
