PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments), is a widely used project management method that navigates you through all the essentials for running a successful project.
PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a flexible method and is aimed at all types of projects. The development of PRINCE2 from the earlier PRINCE method was driven by user based improvements, project management specialists and a review panel of 150 public and private sector organisations. This end result is a generic best practice tool which is flexible enough to be tailored to your organisation and used successfully for all types of project. PRINCE2 is a process-based, scalable approach for effective IT project management. The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) developed PRINCE2 in the mid ’80s specifically for IT projects. With a direct relationship to the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®), the framework is public domain and offers non-proprietary guidance on project management.
PRINCE2′s teachings and certifications provide you with knowledge needed to contribute successfully to the IT projects within your organisation. Overall, the guidance will give you and your team common IT project processes, systems, procedures and language. You benefit from stronger communication channels between the project team, project management and the rest of the organisation, while avoiding errors, saving time and money and, most importantly, delivering successful project outcomes!
