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 Cirencester

Cirencester is the most prominent town in the Cotswold region situated 93 miles west-northwest of London. It is located on the tributary of the Thames River which is known as River Churn. It is also known as a market town in east Gloucestershire with a population of around 19000 according to 2011 census. The town is situated on the lower dip slopes of the outcrop of oolitic limestone, commonly known as Cotswold Hills. The town is divided into five major areas such as the suburbs of Chesterton, Watermoor, the town centre, Stratton and the Beeches.  

The Corinium Museum of the town is highly recognised for its important Roman collection. In 1840, the oldest agricultural college ‘Royal Agricultural University’ of the English speaking world is built in the city.  The Itzehoe town of the Germany is considered as a twin town of Cirencester. The twin town concept was introduced in 1947 after the Second World War to foster peace and reconciliation and promote trade and tourism. The early citation of the town was made by the Greco-Roman astrologer, mathematician and geographer Ptolemy in AD 150. The earlier name of the town was Corinium in the Roman times depicting its association with the ancient British tribe of the Dobunni. It has been suggested that the Dobunni has the same root word as the Churn River.

History

The early settlement of the town was formed in the early Roman area along with Colchester and St Albans. The fort was built by the Romans in AD 49 to accommodate two military allies supported to shield the provincial frontier. The fort was built at the place where the Roman road Fosse Way crossed the Churn and native Iron Age tribes ‘Dobunni’ were drawn from Bagendon and formed civil settlement near the fort. The evidence of major area roadwork was also found in the town. After the invasion of Wales, the tribe moved to the north and subsequently, the fort was closed. The public place outdoors ‘Forum’ and Christian church ‘Basilica’ were built over the site of the fort.

The town continued to grow and prospered under the Corinium Dobunnorum name. The robust wool trade and industry played a significant role towards the development of Corinium in the Roman times. The various Roman remains were found in the surrounding area including the large number of Roman villas near the villages of Withington and Chedworth. The town was also considered as the second largest city by area in the Great Britain after the wall constructed around the Roman city and covered 240 acres area.

The ancient market town in the Cotswold Hills of England known as the Roman Amphitheatre lies on the south-west of the town and still exists in the town and partially excavated. After the dissolution of the Monasteries, all the abbey buildings were demolished in 1539 and only Norman Arch and remains of the precinct wall were survived above ground. These further established the perimeter of a public park in the centre of the town. The townsmen of the Cirencester gained wealth and prosperity from the national and international wool sales, woollen broadcloth and sheep rearing businesses.

The town was severally affected by the English Civil War in the 16th century resulted in the death of 300 people and 1200 prisoners were caged in the church. The town became a robust market town and major urban centre with its convenient access to markets for production of wool and grain at the end of the 18th century. The town provides various leisure, retail and sports facilities as well as significant tourist trade for the townsfolk and the surrounding area. The important places to visit in the town are Corinium Museum, Cirencester Park, Cirencester Amphitheatre, Cerney House Gardens and much more exciting locations.
