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 Warrington

Warrington is referred as unitary authority area in Cheshire with a population of around 208,800 recorded in 2016. It lies on the shore of the Mersey River. The town is referred as the largest town in the county of Cheshire, England. It is located between the towns of Manchester and Liverpool. The population of the town grew strongly since 1968, and it became a new town. The history of the area traced its root back to the Roman period. The Romans discovered the town at an important crossing place on the Mersey River, and the Saxons set up the new settlement of the town. Warrington developed as a market town at the lowest bridging point, a place which is crossed by a bridge at its closest point to the sea during the Medieval Period. The town was engaged in the business of textile and wool production in the middle ages.

The town experienced the urbanisation and expansion after the industrialisation took place in historical counties of England and when Mersey was made traversable in the 18th century. The vital railway corridors in the United Kingdom, West Coast Main Line, runs north to south and the Cheshire Lines connecting the towns of Liverpool and Manchester, runs west to east. The Manchester Ship Canal, 36 miles long inland waterway connecting Manchester to the Irish Sea cuts through the south of the town from west to east. The partial box is created around the town with M6 and M62 motorways. In 1974, with the combination of former County Borough of Warrington, the Lymm Urban District and the Warrington Rural District, the modern borough of Warrington was developed.

History

The early settlement of the town was established at Wilderspool during the Roman Empire. The evidence of Bronze Age settlements had been suggested by the local archaeologists. The town developed at an important crossing point on the Mersey River since the ancient times. The importance of the town grew and emerged as a market town and crossing point of the Mersey River. The early reference to the bridge was first found in 1285. The area around the St Elphin’s church, now covered under the Church Street Conservation Area represent the origin of the modern town.The town played a crucial role in the English Civil War. The old town centre served as a mainstay for the armies of the Earl of Derby and Oliver Cromwell. During the industrial revolution, the town evolved as a manufacturing town and became a centre of textiles, steel, tanning and chemical industries.

The town flourished and became more popular after the construction of canal and improvement in the navigational properties of the Mersey River. The town accepted the introduction of steam in the town and used as a source of power for its mills. The town served as a base for RAF Station Burtonwood and airfield for the largest US Army Air Force during the Second World War, The new town status granted to Warrington in 1968. With the decline of heavy industries between 1970 and 1980, the economy of the town shifted to the light industry and technology. The town was affected by the Provisional Irish Republican Army bomb attacks in the town centre and later on, a bomb attack on a gas storage plant in Warrington.    

Economy

Warrington is home to the Unilever and ESR Technology. The major employers of the town are Warrington Council and Warrington & Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In 1974, the first shopping centre was opened and covered new bus station and a Debenhams store. During the modernisation of the town centre, Warrington experienced a boost in its customer trade. There are several other shopping malls and large indoor market in the town. Gulliver’s World theme park is located in the town and covers Lilliput Land and the Safari Kingdom.
