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 Reading

Reading is a large town in Berkshire located in the Thames Valley with a population of around 162,700 recorded in 2016. The town is situated on the Thames and Kennet Rivers in southern England, and it is 42 miles west of London, 75 miles east of Bristol and 25 miles south of Oxford. The history of the town traced its roots back to 8th century. In the medieval period, the town was considered as a 10th largest town in England and served as the main trading and ecclesiastical centre.  One of the richest monasteries ‘Reading Abbey’ is also built in the town. The town was severally affected by English Civil war, and the wealth of the town declined with the major siege and loss of trade.

During that period, the economy of the town again flourished, and it became famous for its brewing trade. The town is crowned as leading economic area for economic success, and well-being and the factors contributing towards its growth are health, employment, and income. Due to its strategic location and establishment of information technology and insurance sector in the town, it became a major commercial and regional retail centre catering the needs of a large area of the Thames Valley.

The first battle of the town was held in 871, and an army of Danes set up the camp and remained in the town until the end of 8th century. With the presence of six mills, Reading was explicitly known as a borough in 1086. In the 14th century, the most devastating pandemics Black Death also affected the city and lost 60% of its population.

Reading Abbey founded in 1121 was largely destroyed during the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538.
