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 Wokingham

Wokingham meaning ‘Wocca's people's home', situated 6 3 km from London to its West, and having a population of 30,690 is a market town. Wokingham, before 1974 when the local government was reorganized, was a borough. To form the current Wokingham District, it merged in 1974 it merged with Wokingham Rural District. Wokingham achieved the status of a borough in 2007.

Governance:

Northern Wokingham, at one time, was a detached part of Wiltshire that extended into the centre of the town – the area currently occupied by the Norreys, Bean Oak and Dowlesgreen estates. In 1844 it became a part of Berkshire. The then existing parish, in 1894, was divided into rural and urban civil parishes.

The Municipal Corporation Act of 1835 left Wokingham unformed. The Act was reformed in 1883. Due to the Local Government Act 1972, in 1974,  Wokingham and Wokingham Rural District merged to form the non-metropolitan district of Wokingham.  Formed as a unitary authority in 1998, the district has 54 elected councillors presided over by an elected councillor who manages the district and chairs (as a Chairman) all the meetings for a full year. The elections take place in three out of four years for the Chairman Councillor. Since 2002, the Conservative party has been in the seat with a majority. The Shute End is home to the Borough Council Offices in Wokingham.

Topography:

Located on the Emm Brook kin the Loddon Valley in central Berkshire, Wokingham is 33 miles west of central London and between the towns of Reading and Bracknell. Wokingham originally happened to be just a piece of agricultural land on the western front of the Windsor Forest. Wokingham’s soil is rich in loam and has a subsoil of gravel and sand.

The Wokingham town centre is replete with residential areas in almost every direction. The residential areas in the east are home to Dowlesgreen, Norreys, Keephatch and Bean Oak, in the west are Woosehill and  Emmbrook in the northwest. To the south, the areas include Wescott and Eastheath. Other residential areas include Woodcray and Luckley Green which have been present for a long time.

The last 8 decades have seen a lot of development in Wokingham. Dowlesgreen and Woosehill were built on farmland in the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s. Bean Oak was also developed during the same period. Keephatch came to be built in the '90s decade. The Norreys Estate came into existence in the 1960s. The  Norreys Avenue is. however, the oldest residential road having been built in the 1940’s. Norreys Avenue shaped as a horseshoe is located on Norreys Manor (now demolished). Because of this much of the manufactured houses were styled like those belonging to the 1940’s.The road also is home to some brick houses and to three blocks for police residential quarters.
