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 Lincoln

Lincoln which is situated in Lincolnshire, is a cathedral city and as per 2011 census had a population of 94,600. In the early periods, it was known as Lindum Colonia, a Roman colony. Lindum Colonia had come up from a settlement of the Iron Age that belonged to the 1st Century B.C. The settlement was the result of a deep pool and the name also probably comes from the word Lindon which was later converted to the Latin form Lindum. The full name for the location was  Colonia Domitiana Lindensium, which went by its founder, Domitian’s name. The colony was established within the walls of the hilltop fortress, to which an extension was also added later on, of an equal area.

Cathedral

First of all the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral began with the see being removed from the backwater of Dorchester-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. It was completed in 1092 but had to be rebuilt after a fire destroyed it. The cause of the fire is said to have been an earthquake that shook Lincoln in 1185. When the Lincoln Minster was rebuilt it had an added portion to the east.  The construction was completed on a superb scale with the crossing tower decorated by a pinnacle that rose to 525 ft, and considered to be the highest Europe has ever had till date. After the completion of all the three spires, the central spire is expected to be the tallest man-made structure in the world after the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

The Bishops of Lincoln were said to be one of the richest people in medieval England. The Diocese of Lincoln, considered to be the biggest in England, was home to more monasteries than the entire English counties put together.

When Magna Carta, the charter to bring peace between the king and rebel barons, was signed, one of the witnesses happened to be the Bishop of Lincoln, Hugh of Wells. There is only one copy that remains of the four originals and that is in the Lincoln Castle.

Lincoln Cathedral

The bishops of Lincoln who were most known were :

  • Robert Bloet
  • Hugh of Avalon
  • Robert Grosseteste
  • Henry Beaufort
  • Thomas Wolsey
  • Philip Repyngdon
  • Thomas Rotherham

Theologian William de Montibus was the chancellor and head of the cathedral school till his death in 1213. The Bishop’s Palace was the centre of administration. Built towards the end of the 12th Century, it was a magnificent building of that era in England. The East Hall of the Palace, designed by Hugh of Lincoln, is the earliest enduring example of a roofed domestic hall. Bishop William of Alnwick was responsible for building the other two parts namely the chapel range and entrance tower. It was he who also improvised upon the existing structure and lend a modern look to it in the 1430s. King Henry VIII and James I are said to have been e guests of the bishops at Lincoln Cathedral. Some royal troops ransacked the cathedral in 1648 during the civil war. The cathedral had another recent break-in due to which the stained glass had to be replaced.
