PRINCE2® Training

Managing Projects in Controlled Environment

TOPIC INTRODUCTION

PRINCE2® is derived from PROMPT II(Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques). CCTA (Central Computer and Telecommunication Agency) adopted a version of PROMPT II and it came to be known as PRINCE (PROMPT II In the CCTA Environment). It was later on that PRINCE came to stand for Projects In Controlled Environment. The latest update of PRINCE2® is the 2017 version. The previous version came in 2009. The domain of PRINCE2 very soon spread out beyond the boundaries of IT systems. It came to be used on a large scale by the UK government as well as the private sector across the world. AXELOS Ltd. acquired the rights to PRINCE2® in July 2013. PRINCE2® being an undertaking of AXELOS confirms with its other sister products also that very much like PRINCE2® follow the Best Practices methods. The other methodologies that follow best practices are ITIL®, P3O, MSP, MoR, MoV, and many others.

PRINCE2® is a methodology that can be customized to meet the demands of a project as specified by the client organisation. Recently AXELOS in May 2017 announced the newest update to PRINCE2® terming it as PRINCE2® 2017. The updated certifications for PRINCE2® 2017 became available in July 2017 both for the Foundation as well as the Practitioner exams. Since 2009, AXELOS has come up with this major update to PRINCE2® after a gap of around 8 years. The update according to AXELOS was necessary as delegates earlier were concentrating more on passing the exams rather than gathering the concepts for later use in their professional life.

Belfast is the largest city in the northern part as well as the second largest city in the whole Ireland region. It is also the capital city. It got the status of the city during late 18th century. The city was the hub of the Irish linen suit, rope-making, tobacco-processing and shipbuilding industries. RMS Titanic recognised as the world’s biggest as well as beneficial shipyard. Belfast played a crucial role in the industrial revolution and emerged as world’s Industrial hub during late 20th century. In mid of the 1930s, the city continued a major aerospace and missiles industry. Also, the city is a centre for business, higher education, arts, law and much more.

The city is governed by Belfast City Council and is part of local government district council as well. It is being represented in both the Northern Ireland Assembly and British House Of Commons. Belford comes under Northern Ireland constituency during the elections to the European Parliament.

Geography

Belfast located on the western side of Belfast Lough and the mouth of the Lagan River. This location is ideal for the shipbuilding industry. Wolff and Harland had the most significant shipyard in the world when the Titanic was built. At the time of winter solstice which the shortest day of the year, the sun rises around 08:45 and sunset before 16:00.  

Climate

Belfast has a marine climate similar to the rest of the Ireland. The difference seen in the day-night temperature is very less. Because of the warming effect of Gulf Stream, the temperature of Belfast is milder as compared to any other location. Currently, there is five weather observing stations in the Belfast that are Stormont, Newforge, Castlereagh, Helens Bay and Ravenhill Road. The hottest night of Belfast is recorded as 19.6 °C in August 2001 at Whitehouse.

Areas and Districts

During the 19th century, Belfast had grown rapidly from a market town to an industrial city. The city is gifted by natural hills that surround it and ultimately increase the beauty of the town. Furthermore, it helps in the tourism sector of the city. The city centre of Belfast is divided into two postcode districts. These are BT1 (for the north hall) and BT2( for the south hall). The number of tourists is continuously increasing since 2001. For this, cultural quarters have been developed by the city council. It really helps in the economy of the city as local people expanded their business and earning their livelihood. The name of the Cathedral Quarter has been taken from the name of St Anne’s Cathedral.

One of the main outdoor venues is Custom House Square. It is considered as the best place for free concerts and street entertainment. Apart from the communication channel, the Irish language is highly promoted and encouraged in the area of Gaeltacht quarter in west Belfast.

Demography

The population census conducted in the year of 2011, and the population was 276,459. This strength of people makes it the fifteenth-largest city and eleventh-largest conurbation in the England. As per the records, the first half of 20th century, the city experienced a massive growth in population. This arose issues related to administration during 1971 as the town was lacking with facility and infrastructure. But with the time, the development works also got pace and situation got well.
