PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2®) is a widely diffused and applied Project Management best practice that stands out due to its ability to offer a complete structured method that can be personalised for a specific context in order to successfully manage projects.
PRINCE2 fits in with the best practice of AXELOS for the management of Portfolio, Programme and Project Management and therefore integrates well with MoP®, P3O® and MSP® among others.
PRINCE2 2009 AND PRINCE2 6th edition: WHAT IS CHANGED?
Following a range of global feedback, AXELOS is updating PRINCE2’s syllabus, guidance and examinations for the first time since 2009.
While the feedback on PRINCE2’s core methodology remains positive, AXELOS has decided that PRINCE2 needs to better reflect the need to be flexible towards individual projects. New technologies, together with the ever-increasing expectations from stakeholders and customers, demonstrate how today’s project management environment is constantly growing and evolving. As a result, PRINCE2 now has a stronger emphasis on tailoring — to enable project managers to adapt and improve, to achieve the best out of their business. AXELOS will be producing a new version of the PRINCE2 guidance, as well as updated Foundation and Practitioner exams, to be launched in mid-2017.
The main changes to the course will include specific emphasis on the following:
Ensuring flexibility within PRINCE2 so that it can be tailored towards the specific needs of a project
The core principles of PRINCE2;
Re-evaluating the ‘Themes’ guidance to include examples on tailoring
Clarification on the link between these themes and principles
Applying PRINCE2’s guidance practically, with hints and tips on how to achieve this
The aim of the Foundation certification is to ensure that the candidate knows and fully understands the methodology required to be able to work with or as part of a PRINCE2 project management team. The PRINCE2 Foundation level is a pre requisite of next level, PRINCE2 Practitioner.
The PRINCE2® 6th edition Foundation course looks at the basic principles of the PRINCE2 method, the components (called themes) and the processes. The PRINCE2 Foundation level is a course entry requirement for the follow-on qualification levels. The course prepares the participants for the exam PRINCE2 6th edition Foundation certificate.
