What PRINCE2 is About

The PRINCE2 (Projects in Controlled Environments) certification has been around since 1989, beginning as the UK Government standard for IT project management. Today PRINCE2 has been updated and expanded and it's now the most popular project management method in the UK. It is the standard in many UK Government departments, and it is also used worldwide by public and private corporations.

PRINCE2 is a highly effective process-based project management method. The focus is on high-level organisation, control, and management of projects based on seven key principles. Because PRINCE2 is a generic approach, it can be adapted to projects in just about any business environment.

The PRINCE2 system offers a set of core guiding principles for project management:

  1. Continued business justification -- A successful project must have a justified need that remains consistent throughout the timeline. If objectives or needs change, the justification also changes and the project must adapt.
  2. Learn from experience -- PRINCE2 emphasises that teams should always be learning from past project experiences.
  3. Defined roles and responsibilities -- Teams need a clear organisational structure. PRINCE2 focuses on identifying key roles and then finding the right person for the task.
  4. Manage by stages -- Projects are broken up into stages and controlled and monitored based on each stage.
  5. Manage by exception -- PRINCE2 methodology asks managers to define tolerances for each objective and delegate authority to carry out the objectives. In practical terms, this approach greatly reduces the need for weekly status meetings, because teams are allowed to function autonomously unless there is a problem.
  6. Focus on products -- PRINCE2 defines project outcomes in terms of deliverable products and focuses on creating those outcomes while meeting quality requirements.
  7. Tailor to suit the project environment -- PRINCE2 is adaptable to accommodate projects of varying size, complexity, and risk levels.

GENERAL INFORMATION

ABOUT PRINCE2® PROJECT MANAGEMENT TRAINING

The Advantages of PRINCE2 Certification

PRINCE2 training helps project managers efficiently manage large team projects using a widely recognised and respected methodology. You'll learn to emphasise business case objects to your team and create project assets that can be reused to boost departmental efficiency. You'll also experience better project control and smoother communications using PRINCE2 planning and reporting processes.

Organisations benefit from improved reporting practices and the consistency and control of a shared approach. The PRINCE2 process also emphasises including stakeholders in decision making and planning steps to improve the project approval process.

PRINCE2 Certification Levels and Courses

Becoming a PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner involves passing two exams. These can be taken concurrently or spread over time. Our accredited training courses teach you what you'll need to know to be successful, and because exam registration is included in the course price, you'll leave with your PRINCE2 certification ready to take on new challenges.

PRINCE2 Foundation
Activia's PRINCE2 Foundation course offers a three-day introduction to the terminology and basic PRINCE2 methodology. Before attending the course you'll need to complete a pre-course reading list that typically takes about 15 hours. The readings provide an understanding of the benefits, scope, and structure of PRINCE2.

After PRINCE2 Foundation training, you'll have a thorough grounding in the PRINCE2 methodology and be ready to pass the one-hour exam for your first certification level. The exam consists of 75 multiple choice questions, with 35 correct answers required to pass. Exam registration is part of the course, and delegates will sit for the test on the third afternoon.

PRINCE2 Practitioner Upgrade
The PRINCE2 Practitioner Upgrade is a two-day course designed for delegates who already hold a PRINCE2 Foundation certification and want to upgrade their skills, and also for those who need to re-register their existing certification (this is because PRINCE2 Practitioners need to re-register every three to five years). It uses the syllabus issued by the PRINCE2 Examinations Board with a focus on applying the PRINCE2 framework to real world projects.

The Practitioner exam lasts two and a half hours and covers eight specific topics. The questions are multiple choice and 44 correct answers (55 per cent) are required to pass. Exam registration is included in the course fee.

PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner
This intensive five-day course is designed to enable delegates to obtain their Foundation and Practitioner certifications simultaneously.

The Foundation exam is taken on the afternoon of the third day and the Practitioner exam is taken on the fifth afternoon. Registration for both exams is included in the price of the training
