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 Plymouth

Plymouth is a port city in Devon that also goes by the name of the Ocean City of Britain. The city is known for its narrow cobbled streets and a maritime heritage. Plymouth lies between the mouths of the two rivers  - Plym and Tamar – and hence its name. The first settlers had come to Plymouth in the Bronze Age. It was in 1620 that the Pilgrim Fathers departed from Plymouth in search of some New World. They established a new colony at the time known as the Plymouth Colony and later as The United States of America.

Plymouth grew during the Industrial Revolution as a Commercial Shipping Port. Imports and passengers both poured into Plymouth from the Americas. Plymouth was also using its ports to export minerals such as time, lime, china clay, copper and arsenic. In 1928 Plymouth achieved a city status when three of its neighbours also joined together under the same name. During the Second World War, Plymouth was a target for the Nazi forces as it sided with the Allied forces.

Governed locally by Plymouth City Council, the city is home to 264,200 people as per the data collected in 2016. The economy of Plymouth has for long been influenced by industries such as Ship-building and sea-faring, but since the 1990’s it is turning more towards the service-based industry. In the whole of Western Europe, Plymouth is home to the biggest Naval-base.

Plymouth 2020

In 2003, Plymouth Council started the "Vision for Plymouth" – a project for the development of the city of Plymouth.  The project aims to build shopping centres, an avenue as a part of the project and a cruise terminal. Another aim of the project is to increase the population to 300,000. 2004 saw the old Drake Circus being demolished and replaced by the Drake Circus Shopping Centre that opened in October 2006. In one of another project,  the Plymouth City Council's headquarters are to be shifted and the civic centre to be demolished. The demolished land of civic centre will be sold so as to generate revenue for building the new council headquarters.at the location where the Bretonside bus station is currently located. The Plymouth Pavillion arena is also up for demolition in one of the projects. This would be replaced by a new canal links from Millbay to the city centre.
