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.
