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 Sheffield

Sheffield is also known as the Steel City to the entire world. In its prime during the 1900’s it was known for its industry. Today, however, this very same industrial city boasts of lush green parks. The city presents the localities and visitors with cultural scenes that include theatres, festivals, street arts, music and much more. Deriving its name from the River Sheaf, the city is located in South Yorkshire, England.

Transport

Road

Sheffield links to the national highway through the M1 and M18 motorways. The city centre is connected with the motorways by the Sheffield Parkway.

Rail

The following are the routes that pass through Sheffield:

  • The Midland Main Line
  • The Cross Country Route
  • Routes that link the cities of Liverpool and Manchester with East Anglia and East Anglia.

Sheffield now has a direct connection to mainland Europe with the St Pancras International completed. There are trains from France and Belgium that connect to Sheffield railway station. The express train known as the Master Cutler connects Sheffield to the capital city.

 In 2010 the ruling government announced in October 2010 that Sheffield and Leeds would be served by the same line, which will also connect to Manchester, due to the proposed High-Speed Rail network. Another line proposed to begin by 2025, the Yorkshire/East Midlands High-Speed line, will be in service by 2032.

Other trains that serve Sheffield are provided by TransPennine Express, Northern and CrossCountry. The city has five other railway stations. Meadowhall, the second largest station in Sheffield serves as a bus, rail and tram interchange. Other commuter stations include services from Dore and Totley, Woodhouse, Chapeltown and Darnall.

Coach

The National Express and the Megabus are two services that operate the coach services in Sheffield. National Express serves the interchanges at Sheffield, Meadowhall and Meadowhead Bus Stop. Megabus only serves Meadowhall. Sheffield is connected by the National Express route 560/564 to London Victoria Coach Station through Chesterfield and Milton Keynes directly. It operates on the route 12 times a day bi-directionally. The two services that connect Sheffield to Manchester and Heathrow/Gatwick Airports respectively are 350 and 240.The M12 and M20, which are services provided by Megabus, call at Sheffield on the way to London from Newcastle upon Tyne and Inverness respectively.

Canal

A system navigable inland waterways - the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation (S&SY)  in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – is mainly based on the River Don which runs for a length of 43 miles with 29 locks. These waterways connect Doncaster, Sheffield,    and Rotherham with the River Trent at Keadby and the Aire and Calder Navigation.

Air

The Sheffield City Airport in 2008 had to be shut down. The entire traffic from Sheffield was as thus to the Doncaster Sheffield Airport which is at a distance of 29 km from the city centre. The airport used to be the site of former RAF Finningley base. The airport opened to the public on 28 April 2005. In a year the airport is capable of handling a million passengers.

A link road that was inaugurated in February 2016 and connects Doncaster Sheffield Airport to the M18 motorway has reduced the journey time from Sheffield by approx. 15  minutes.

The East Midlands Airport is an hour's drive from Sheffield while Manchester Airport connects to Sheffield directly through an hourly train.
