PRINCE2® Practitioner (On-Line)

PRINCE2® Practitioner Certification course

The training is a continuation of the PRINCE2® Foundation, allows you to expand knowledge related to the PRINCE2® project management methodology and to prepare for an accredited PRINCE2® Practitioner exam. In the course the focus is on the practical aspects of project management methodology.

PRINCE2® is a very flexible method to manage all kinds of projects. It was first developed as PROMPT (Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques) because of a need to improve efficiency of government projects, next modified to be PRINCE® and finally became PRINCE2® with the year of edition stated (2002, 2005, 2009, 2017).  PRINCE2® means PRojects IN Controlled Environments. It is the international bestseller because it introduces common language/terminology that is used and understood by project participants. The method itself is very flexible and scalable that defines in a clear way project lifecycle from project preparation throughout the stages to the closure. In the PRINCE2® environment all project participants are appointed clear roles and responsibilities – it is known who takes what decisions and who has what delegated to do. The method is a prescription for an success of an endeavour, where the success is understood as an achievement of the business benefits. The flexibility of PRINCE2® allows to use it in a bureaucratic waterfall way or in agile style. The mention prescription for a success is composed of 21 general elements. There are:

  • 7 principles (imperatives), that absolutely must be applied and followed in a project
  • 7 processes that build project lifecycle
  • 7 themes – (management areas) that must be correctly used in each process of a project

26 management products and a need to tailor the method to each project are linked to the processes and themes. The management products mentioned above may take a form of a large document, just a note but even a simple agreement. PRINCE2® is not at all difficult but expand a skill to analyse each project in the expert way.
