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 Crewe

Located within the borough of Cheshire East, 158 miles north of London, Crewe is a railway town of Cheshire, England. With a population of 72,863, Crewe is known for its large railway station. It is also known for Crewe Works – an organisation that used to manufacture and recondition locomotives. Crewe is also known as the birthplace of Rolls-Royce. Rolls-Royce remained in Crewe from 1946 to 2002 i.e. for a span of 56 years. Now it is the Bentley motor cars that are being manufactured in Crewe.

A mention of Creu is found in the Domesday Book - a record of the "Great Survey" of much of England & Wales that was completed in 1086 to determine the taxes that were owed to the King. However, it was not until 1843 that Crewe had its first modern settlement owing to a development in the railway system that had started in the early 1840’s. During the Second World War, Crewe became a target of the Nazi forces because of the railway junction as well as the presence of Rolls-Royce engineering works.

Developments

In 2008, the development of the current bus station and main shopping area were given up due to a shortage of funds. The railway station was also to be modified and as a part of the plan, it was to be moved to Basford. Anyhow, no such things happened and the current station underwent only some maintenance work instead. A new plan was developed by the Cheshire East Council. A Lifestyle Centre, furnished with swimming pool, a library and a gym was to be a part of the new plan. A new transport hub has been planned for Crewe that would be completed by 2027.
