Top 5 Benefits of PRINCE2


PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based method for effective project management. Widely recognised and used in the private sector, PRINCE2 offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

The benefits of a PRINCE2 certification are plenty, but today we’re exploring the top 5:

1. Widely Recognised

PRINCE2 examinations are available in 19 languages. So, it’s not just that qualifications are recognised across many industries; PRINCE2 is also globally established. Axelos reports that most survey respondents with PRINCE2 qualifications are from outside the UK. Having a globally recognised qualification expands your network and the demand for your services. 

2. Increased Flexibility 

PRINCE2 is about generic best practices, therefore you don’t need any software to run PRINCE2 projects, apart from what your company prefers to use. Being generic also increases the flexibility of PRINCE2 projects. 

3. Common Language

It’s not just the qualification that’s recognised across a number of industries and countries. Over 150 public and private sector organisations make up a virtual committee that use PRINCE2. What PRINCE2 defines as ‘best practice’ is therefore agreed on. Basically, the language of PRINCE2 is the language of project management.

4. Built for Uncertainty

Employers see PRINCE2 candidates as trouble-shooters. If a project is in crisis, PRINCE2’s focus on lessons learned, planning and tolerances can help steady the ship. Part of the reason for this is that candidates are well equipped for tough times. That applies to recessions as well as problems within organisations. 

5. Perfect Starter Qualification

PRINCE2 is the best way of working in project management. It teaches strong principles on how to speak the project management language. Also, PRINCE2 is not rigid and is adaptable in a number of ways. It can be used for any project type at any scale. It will even integrate neatly into other methodologies, like agile.
