PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a streamlined and structured project management method, based on experience drawn from thousands of projects and countless contributions from Project sponsors, Project Managers, Project teams, Academics, Trainers and Consultants.
PRINCE2 isolates the management aspects of project work from the specialist contributions, such as design and construction. The specialist aspects of the project, when used alongside PRINCE2, provide a secure overall framework for the project work. These specialist aspects of the project can also be easily integrated with the PRINCE2 method.
PRINCE2 is generic and based on proven principles. Organizations adopting the method can substantially improve their capability and maturity across various areas, such as Business Change, Construction, IT, Mergers and Acquisitions, Research and Product Development.
PRINCE2 provides the technical structure of the framework of any project, which will complement the softer skills learnt on other qualifications. Hence it is compatible with all other project management qualifications and is the world's most popular project management methodology.
The best practice is supported by the PRINCE2 Qualification scheme which provides different levels of certification for practitioners.
This qualification is aimed at Project Managers and aspiring Project Managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and Operational Line Managers/Staff.
