PRINCE2 can be applied to any type of project within any industry sector. Here's a summary of the key benefits:
The method is widely recognized and understood and so provides a common vocabulary for all those involved in a project, which helps effective communication. The method also provides for the explicit recognition of project responsibilities so that participants understand each other's roles and needs. There is a defined structure for accountability, delegation, authority and communication.
The development of PRINCE2 was driven by the feedback from end-users, project management specialists and a review panel of 150 public and private sector organizations. This has resulted in a generic best practice method which is flexible enough to be tailored to the specific needs of different organizations for all projects, including Agile delivery.
PRINCE2 is compatible with all other project management qualifications as it provides the technical structure of the framework for the project, which will complement the softer skills gained from appropriate training.
Developed through a collaborative approach involving over 100 Practitioners, trainers and consultants:
PRINCE2 now puts a stronger emphasis on:
Includes specific guidance on:
If you currently hold a PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate, it will remain valid until the end of its five-year period.It is well worth familiarizing yourself with all the updates. You can review the new guidance – Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 and you can also join AXELOS’ PRINCE2 Membership programme, which offers exclusive insights into the update and the changes that have been made.
The update also heralds a new way for PRINCE2 Practitioners to keep themselves up to date with the latest thinking and to advance their professional development: This new programme will be linked to PRINCE2 membership (CPD as an option).
There are two key PRINCE2 exams - Foundation and Practitioner. We'll make sure you're well prepared for these.
During the full course we provide training to cover the Foundation and Practitioner levels and work through a representative project journey, ensuring understanding of each element and how they work together.
Practice exams are provided and feedback given to help with your preparation.
For physically attended classes we provide paper-based exams. For virtually attended courses the exams are computer based.
This level provides the users of the method with the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project and is a prerequisite for the practitioner level.
2009 Foundation Exam Format:
AXELOS has taken steps to make the exam more efficient and focus more clearly on the core of PRINCE2. The major changes include:
The practitioner level empowers, encourages and equips you with an in-depth knowledge of how to apply and implement these principles into the life of a project manager on a daily basis.
You'll need to hold the PRINCE2 Foundation prior to sitting the Practitioner level examination.
Practitioner Exam Format:
There is renewed focus on ensuring that candidates have the ability to apply PRINCE2 practically in a given project environment and increase the value gained from using the method. The major changes include:
For current Practitioners the registration period remains at 5 years. Should you need to re-register it may be beneficial to sit the PRINCE2 2009 Re-registration exam as you will then have a further 5 years of registration. Currently there is no 2017 Re-registration exam.
TrainX have a 100% Pass Rate for PRINCE2 Foundation and the highest UK pass rate for Practitioner. We're happy to discuss on-site and closed-course deliveries for your team.
The PRINCE2 2017 Update is part of the evolution of PRINCE2. This ensures it will continue to be relevant for all levels of project across all disciplines. The 2009 exams at the end of 2017. From then the Practitioner will have a 3 (rather than 5) year registration period. To keep registered the Practitioner will need to sit the full Practitioner exam and or maintain a level of CPD - we'll provide further details in update to the blog.
The 2017 Update is becoming mainstream and after 2017 will be the only version available. PRINCE2 2009 remains a valid and potentially desirable option until though the exams will no longer be available after 2017.
