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 Guildford

Guildford, a large town in Southern England is located on the A3 trunk road with a population of around 137,000 according to 2011 census. It is located 27 miles southwest of central London and it forms the Greater London Area’s southwestern tip. The town has been the seat of Borough of Guildford with 146,100 inhabitants recorded in 2015. According to the recent historical survey, Guildford came into existence as a result of a gap where River Wey was crossed over by the Harrow Way in the North Downs.

English Royal Mint was established in 978 AD and remained in the town until part way through the reign of William. The economy of the town boomed after being connected to a network of waterways on the building of the Wey Navigation and Basingstoke Canal. Guildford Cathedral and the University of Surrey were built in the 20th century. Guildford is considered as a robust commercial town and home to major businesses include Allianz and Sanofi, Lionhead Studios, Philips Electronics, Ericsson, Hello Games and Colgate-Palmolive. A number of leading companies including satellite manufacturers, medical and specialist gas providers are based in the Surrey Research Park. 

History

The history of the city traced its roots back to the Anglo-Saxon period. Some Bronze Age remaining including Roman villa has been found in the western Park Barn neighborhood of the town. After the abandonment of Roman period in Britain, Anglo-Saxon settlers developed the settlement as a small town. The population of the settlement grew as an ancient trackway Harrow Way crosses the Wey River by a ford. Although there are no clear pieces of evidence, it is assumed that Guildford Castle depicts the architectural style of Norman period. The layout of the castle was designed to overawe the conquered population. The status of the castle was then changed to the royal hunting lodge and granted to Francis Carter in 1611.

The remaining chamber of Guildford Synagogue was found in the High street in 1995. It is likely to be the Western Europe’s oldest remaining synagogue, but this remains a matter of controversy. The other notable building of the town includes Guildhall, which was built in the 14th century and still stands today. The Council chamber was also added in the existing structure and front façade of the building was decorated by the projecting clock. The Borough Council constructed 18 communal air raid shelters provided first aid and sanitation services during the Second World War.

The two pubs of the town were the prime target of Irish Republican Army and they planted a bomb resulted in the death of a civilian and four off-duty soldiers. Some suspects of this case also known as Guildford Four were found guilty in 1975 and sentenced to long prison sentences. Later on, they were released after a long legal battle and denied their involvement in the bombing. The town entered into the new phase of development in the 21st century and considered as one of the most expensive places in real estate sector in the UK outside London and ranked 9th in the Britain in 2006 for the best place to live in. The town is also ranked 27th for its pleasing and safe shopping destination in the United Kingdom.

Education

Guildford follows three-tier education system and there are several primary, junior and secondary schools in the town include Holy Trinity, Boxgrove Primary school, Guildford County school and Christ’s college. There are some independent schools in the town that include Royal Grammar School, Lanesborough School, Tormead School and Rydes Hill Preparatory School.
