An Introduction to PRINCE 2

Prince 2 is the world’s leading project management method - using logical and organised stages, defined steps and clearly identified roles, responsibilities and relationships to deliver tangible benefits.

More than 4,000 people experience Prince 2 courses and Prince2 training every month, confident in the knowledge that the methodology encourages a best practice approach to running projects in a consistent framework.

In fact, since its introduction in 1989, Prince 2 has become the de facto standard for project management in both the public and private sectors.

Prince 2 training courses are widely available in the UK with two qualifications – Prince 2 Foundation and Prince 2 Practitioner - and the only pre-requisite candidates require to undertake Prince 2 training is a general background knowledge and experience of project management.

Thousands of UK professionals have successfully used Prince 2 courses to create a standard and structured approach to their project management, running projects which are well-organised, well-planned and results-driven.

And, because Prince 2 is an easily-tailored solution which can be used in any environment and divides projects into manageable stages, it ensures the efficient control and use of resources and regular process monitoring.

When used effectively, Prince 2 training ensures that successful projects have:

• A planned, organised and controlled start, middle and end
• Regular reviews of progress against the plan and the business case
• Flexible decision points
• Automatic management control of deviations from the plan
• Stakeholder and management involvement at the right time and place
• Excellent communication channels between the project, project management and the rest of the organisation
