PRINCE2® is a process-based method for effective project management, that will give you the skills to feel confident in managing projects successfully within the workplace and provide you with greater control of resources and the ability to manage business and project risk in an effective manner.

PRINCE2® is an acronym of Projects In Controlled Environments.

PRINCE2® methodology is one of the most widely accepted methods for managing projects worldwide. It isolates the management aspects of project work from the specialist contributions, such as design, construction etc. which are easily integrated with the PRINCE2® project management method. This provides a secure framework for any type of project across multiple areas of business activity such as business change, construction, IT, mergers and acquisitions, research and product development.
There are many benefits of using PRINCE2® project management, primarily it:
- Ensures project management is focused on the continuing viability of the project in relation to its business case
- Involves senior management in the project at the right time and in the right place
- Focuses on products which provides clarity for all parties involved on what the project must deliver
- Facilitates controls at all levels
- Makes the project's progress more visible to management
- Provides a communication medium for all project staff
- Ensures that work progresses in the correct sequence
- Allows the project to be stopped and, if required, re-started completely under management control, at any time
- Has a well-established 'User Group' dedicated to the support, promotion and strengthening of the method
