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.

ABOUT Carlisle

Carlisle, also known as the Great Border City as it has a common border with Scotland and England, is located in Cumberland at the convergence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril.   It serves not only as the administrative centre for Cumbria County Council and Carlisle City Council but is also the largest settlement in the Cumbria County.  Carlisle is known to have been a Roman settlement. Carlisle became an important military settlement during the Middle Ages as it enjoyed the closeness with the Kingdom of Scotland. One of the main attractions of Carlisle is the Carlisle Castle which was built by William Rufus in 1092 AD and was to be the prison of the Queen of Scotts, Mary. In the 12th Century, by the order of Henry I, a nunnery came up in Carlisle. A diocese came into existence somewhere in the 1130’s and the priory became a cathedral that is now known as the Carlisle Cathedral. Carlisle is a place of historic importance as all the greats such as Celts, Romans, King Arthur and Bonnie Prince Charlie have either ruled or lived.

Later, the Industrial Revolution saw the rise of the textile industry and the beginning of a social as well as economical transformation in Carlisle.

Attractions

  • The Carlisle Castle: The Carlisle Castle has stood here for nine centuries. The Castle was home to the King’s Royal Border Regiment and even held Queen Mary of Scotts as a prisoner. As of today, it is a place of an exhibition that showcases its history to the generation of the 21st Century in the form of exhibitions. The Castle also has Cumbria's Museum of Military Life that depicts the arms and other objects used by the military of the various kings in battles and wars.
  • The Carlisle Cathedral: Carlisle Cathedral is considered to be a magnificent piece that has been taken from the history of North West England. Having stood on the border for almost 900 years it seems to say a tale of its own. Even though it is not the biggest cathedral in England, it delights the visitors due to its religious connections. Visitors come here just not to see the cathedral but also to make worship to the Lord and praise Him. Here religion is no bound. Anybody from any religion can come and sit in the congregation at these services. Visitors come here to discover stories of faith, love and hope.
  • Our Lady and St Joseph's Church: Built in the early 1890's, this church is a Roman Catholic Parish church. The church has a building that is listed as Grade II.
