The PRINCE2 Methodology 

PRINCE2 is a non-proprietary, process-based project management approach that is distinguished by its truly generic nature, meaning that it can be applied to any project regardless of type, scale, organsiation, culture or geography.

But what makes it so widely applicable?

The key is in the ability to separate the management aspects of project work from the specialist elements such as construction or design. As a result, the specificities of any project can be easily integrated with the PRINCE2 methodology to provide a solid overall framework for its completion, from planning through to assessment. Additionally, PRINCE2 works well in conjunction with other programme management methods such as MSP.

The key features of PRINCE2 are:

  • an emphasis on business justification
  • a clearly defined organisational structure for the PM team
  • a product-based planning approach
  • a focus on splitting the project into a number of manageable and controllable stages
  • flexibility that is applicable at the right level for the project

There are two PRINCE2 qualification levels: PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner. A PRINCE2 course will usually result in one or both of these qualifications

PRINCE2 Foundation

The PRINCE2 Foundation is the beginner level qualification and is thus aimed at people who need to learn the basics and terminology of PRINCE2. 

Foundation PRINCE2 courses generally have a duration of 3 days and comprise the relevant examination. This means that participants will generally leave the PRINCE2 course in possession of the Foundation certificate, which is a pre-requisite for certification at the Practitioner level.

PRINCE2 Practitioner

The PRINCE2 Practitioner is the higher level qualification, suitable for those responsible for managing projects within a tailored PRINCE2 environment.

Practitioner PRINCE2 courses have an average duration of 2 days, but are often combined with the Foundation syllabus in a comprehensive 5-day programme for candidates wishing to move directly to this level. These PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner courses cover the entire Foundation and Practitioner syllabuses and include both of the examinations. Delegates are thus able to leave the training as fully certified Practitioners, enhancing their project management skills and adding significant value to their careers as project managers.

All PRINCE2 Practitioners are urged to re-register within 3-5 calendar years of their original certification via an apposite PRINCE2 Re-Registration Examination. PRINCE2 courses are available for requalification

PRINCE2 qualifications can be undertaken in an online, open course or in-house project management training programme.
