What is PRINCE2®?

PRINCE2® is flexible, adaptable method for managing projects. It helps you work out who should be involved, their responsibilities and processes, explaining what information you should be gathering along the way.  

PRINCE2® may be similar to what you currently use, but what it does best is pull together common names and descriptions into a structure that anyone familiar with PRINCE2® can understand, regardless of background or industry. 

How big does a project have to be before PRINCE2 can be used?

PRINCE2® can be applied to all sorts of projects, from the very small to the very large. Even projects lasting only a few days will benefit from selective application of PRINCE2® guidelines. The key to success with PRINCE2® is to remember it is highly configurable, and so can be adapted for all project types regardless of industry and marketplace.

Is PRINCE2® aimed at any particular type of project?

PRINCE2® is designed to be applied generally to all types of project, be they construction, engineering, IT, business, financial or whatever. In the past, it has been aimed at IT projects, and so it is still well used in this area however there has been significant growth recently in other industries.

Is PRINCE2® suitable for non-IT projects?

Yes! Unlike the first version of PRINCE, PRINCE2® is designed to be generic and can be used for projects of any nature.

Does PRINCE2® guarantee a successful outcome to projects?

No! but applied sensibly it will increase the chances of your projects being successful.

Who owns PRINCE2®?

PRINCE2 belongs to AXELOS Ltd. The marketing of the manuals is carried out by The Stationery Office (formerly known as HMSO). 

What will a PRINCE2® qualification do for me?

The PRINCE2® project management methodology is the de-facto standard for project management in the UK and is practiced worldwide. It covers the management, control and organisation of a project.

A qualification in PRINCE2® will not only boost your skills and confidence when managing projects but will greatly improve your employment prospects. Many organisations, both private and public, mandate the use of PRINCE2® and therefore require their staff to be competent and qualified to practice the method.

What are the PRINCE2 qualifications and what will they teach me?

The PRINCE2 Foundation qualification will teach you the PRINCE2 principles, terminology and when qualified you will be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2 methodology within a project environment supporting PRINCE2.

The PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification will teach you to apply PRINCE2 to the running and managing of a project within an environment supporting PRINCE2. Once qualified you will be able to apply and tune PRINCE2 to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario. You will have a comprehensive knowledge of the relationships between the PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes and PRINCE2 products and will understand these elements.

The PRINCE2 Re-Registration qualification is designed for those who have passed PRINCE2 to Practitioner level and wish to maintain their Registered Practitioner status. The PRINCE2 Examination Board has determined that all PRINCE2 Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 calendar years of their original certification (failure to pass the Re-Registration examination after five calendar years as a Registered Practitioner will result in withdrawal of your registered status).

The PRINCE2 Agile qualification will teach you how to apply and tailor key agile concepts to PRINCE2 projects. Once qualified, you can potentially complete projects and create returns on investment earlier than possible with a rigid PRINCE2 structure. You can also improve communication by using common terminology across PRINCE2 and agile disciplines.

Which countries recognise PRINCE2?

With over a million exams already taken globally PRINCE2 is already recognised as the world’s most popular project management methodology.

I've done the Foundation training and exam how do I become a Practitioner?

You need to sit a two day upgrade course - this is available as an intensive classroom course or as online learning.

I want to go straight to Practitioner training!

In order to be eligible for the Practitioner exam you must have successfully completed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam or one of the other PRINCE2 Practitioner pre-requisite courses .

You can however take our fast track route by combining the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner levels. This can be achieved through one of three pathways depending on your chosen learning method.

Foundation, Practitioner, Agile and Professional

The development of PRINCE2 is driven by the end-user feedback from users, project management specialists and a review panel of 150 public and private sector organizations. This has resulted in a generic best practice tool which is flexible enough to be tailored to your organization and used successfully for all types of projects. 

Because PRINCE2 provides a greater control of resources and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively, its appeal extends far beyond project management specialists to directors and executive board members.

The PRINCE2 qualification scheme has been developed to offer four levels of qualification, FoundationPractitioner, Agile and Professional as outlined below.

AXELOS has also developed the PRINCE2 Agile™ qualification to enable you to incorporate the project management processes and methods of PRINCE2 with agile concepts to offer a complete agile project management solution.
