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 Hinckley

Hinckley, in southwest Leicestershire between the cities of Leicester and Coventry,  is the second biggest town in terms of area. Hinckley is administered by the council of Hinckley and Bosworth Borough.

 Places

  • The Battle of Bosworth: The site of the Battle of Bosworth is located in Hinckley. The site houses an interpretation centre at Ambion Hill, where King Richard III set up camp before proceeding further for battle. Many soldiers who died during the battle are buried at St James's Church in Dadlington. The place is now a shrine for the ones who lost their lives.
  • Hinckley Museum: The Museum is home to 17th-century knitter’s cottages made from timber.
  • Stoke Golding: The site is home to a very fine arcade that can be found in some of the most beautiful medieval period churches.
  • St Mary's Church: It is a 13th-century church dedicated to Virgin Mary and located in the centre of Hinckley. Richard Smith was a young horse rider who was murdered in 1727. A tombstone dedicated to the youth is present in the courtyard. Every year on 12th April, this tombstone bleeds. April 12 is the date when the youth was murdered. The church remains open daily from 10.00 to 4.00 pm, and during the services on Sunday.
  • Parks Hollycroft Park: The park actually belonged to the Atkins family but in 1934 the Atkins handed over the park to the city authorities so it could be opened to the public. The park is very much liked by those who wish to play tennis and golf. The park houses various tennis courts, a bowling green, gardens, golf course and a bandstand. Many big events in the town take place at this park. The park in the years 2010 to 2012 received the Green Flag Status for achieving high standards.

 Other places that could attract visitors are the Brodick Park in the west of Hinckley and the Ashby Canal. The park with all its trees acts as a nature reserve. On the other hand, the canal is the longest curved canal in England passing through Hinckley.

It was in the early 1990’s that the A47 was by-passed as a result of the completion of the Normandy Way. This not only decreased congestion in the town, it was also helpful in the commercial development of the town along the A47 route. Hinckley has two motorways the A5 and the M69 with the M69 linking Hinkley to Leicester, Coventry and the two motorways the M6 and the M1.
