So, what are your key benefits of obtaining a PRINCE2 qualification?

Nowadays, an investment in obtaining PRINCE2 qualification is not only about raising the effectiveness of project delivery. Or simply doing a better job.

Above all, it´s about…

When thinking about obtaining PRINCE2 qualification, think about this:

Project managers trained in the PRINCE2 method of project management do two things really well.

Firstly, they can handle any kind of a project. And secondly, many could double as pilots.

Hey, you may be wondering: What is this funny opening all about? Am I being taken for a ride? What can the PRINCE2 method possibly have in common with flying a plane?

If you come to think of it, quite a lot. Starting with something that lies at the very core of both skill sets – a structured method.

PRINCE2 provides a system of  SOPs

For flying, it’s the aviation checkbook. For project management, it’s the PRINCE2 method.

And the key idea behind both is the same – standard operating procedures.

As an illustration, pilots follow them scupulously through the different phases of a flight.

By the same token, members of the PRINCE2 project team behave in much the same way.

Correspondingly, they lock into the project mode once the Starting Up a Project process commences. And take the project to the end of the Closing a Project process by the book. Which means, in a logical, coherent, synchronized and efficient way.

And here comes the best part – you too can join some 1.79 million (and that´s a conservative estimate) professionals who are certified PRINCE2 Practitioners.

By and large, they come from more than 20,000 organisations spread among 158 countries around the world. After all, going through PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training and passing the certification exam opens doors.

That’s not all. As a matter of fact, each year numbers of accredited PRINCE2® practitioners grow by some 10 percent. Аll things considered, you can take it as a true indicator that PRINCE2® delivers what it promises.

And if you are not prepared (yet) to go the full mile, start with the PRINCE2 Foundation certification.

All the world is a project…

The PRINCE2 method of project management offers tangible and actionable benefits to delegates and organisations. While project management is about value for money, the PRINCE2 method that centres on the desirability of the business case. Diligent project management also has a focus on viability, which is a PRINCE2 core concept. In the same vein, project management following the PRINCE2 method is a sure way of ensuring that desired benefits are achievable.

The PRINCE2 method of project management enjoys such broad acceptance for a simple reason – it works. PRINCE2 provides a project management framework that reduces project risks and grows the probability of project success.

PRINCE2 project management methodology follows a set of nuanced rules distilled from practice and logical reasoning. Similarly, the PRINCE2 professional certification requires candidates to acquire a sharp eye for fine detail.

The PRINCE2 Foundation exam tests you on the knowledge of core rules and common sense. The PRINCE2 Practitioner exam tests you on logical reasoning based on a granular knowledge of PRINCE2.

We use accredited training materials to create bespoke training programmes to help you – as a start – pass your PRINCE2 Foundation exam. As a next step, we´ll guide you in your preparation for sitting the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam.

Join the trend. Book a place on one of our PRINCE2 qualification training courses. 

As a matter of fact, there are two levels to PRINCE2 certification. Accordingly, we offer both PRINCE2 Foundation (find here the detailed description of all 20+ course topics) and Practitioner courses, run separately or together.

We recommend a combined Foundation Practitioner course, what we call a Double Dip. This is by far the most popular training product that includes two certification exams.

In the classroom format, the PRINCE2 Foundation Practitioner course will command your undivided attention during five full days. But that´s it. Candidates take both Foundation and Practitioner exams DURING the course.  This way, our delegates sit PRINCE2 certification exams at the peak of their form.

In the virtual instructor-led training format, the Foundation Practitioner course takes four weekdays. Or two consecutive weekends. The reason is, candidates are responsible for scheduling their certification exams individually AFTER the course.

The tricky part here is not to succumb to procrastination. That is rather often the case with the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. Accordingly, during the course we will explain exactly the optimal approach to achieving PRINCE2 Practitioner exam readiness.

Here is your ultimate benefit – our PRINCE2 qualification courses are always bundled with certification exams.

We do not offer courses without exams.

Or exams without courses.

So, the PRINCE2 method offers a structured approach to project management.

As a matter of fact, “structured” implies “repeatable”.

Certainly, that in itself brings PRINCE2 users a big advantage.

Above all, instead of reinventing the wheel for each project, an organisation´s project management method needs to be set up only once. Project managers will just apply it with minimal tailoring.

Generally speaking, at least considering the need for tailoring will remain mandatory. Tailoring is one of seven PRINCE2 principles that must be observed.

All things considered, the PRINCE2 method is a bit similar in concept to reusable space launch systems. All or some components can be recovered and reused. Such an approach helps to shave mega-bucks and kilo-hours off space mission projects.

In the same vein, the use of PRINCE2 can lead to huge savings in project management, too.

For one thing, PRINCE2® has not been INVENTED. It has been DISCOVERED sifting through experience drawn from a great number of projects.

And over the past three decades thousands of organisations have adopted it.

  • Small and medium-sized businesses.
  • Multinational corporations.
  • International organisations.
  • Public services.
  • Governments.

And all these thousands of entities run hundreds of thousands of PRINCE2 projects that employ millions.

Which means (DRUMROLL) they need people with PRINCE2 qualification to fill roles on their project management teams.

Gosh, what an amazing opportunity!

Now, is that a sufficient argument for queuing up to get PRINCE2 training, or what?

True, PRINCE2 training is not exactly cheap. But look at what you get in return.

  • Transferable skills that can boost your market value.
  • A globally recognised PRINCE2 Practitioner certification that vacancy notices define at least as an advantage. And often times, as a requisite.
  • With the knowledge of best practice in project management comes a boost in on-the-job confidence and performance.

Accordingly, paying for the PRINCE2 training is not spending money. Rather, it´s investing in yourself. And with a prospect of earning a terrific return on investment.

Is it a smashing proposition, or what?

To help you glean what´s the foundation of PRINCE2 here are some of its salient features.

In a nutshell, PRINCE2® embraces the planning, delegating, directing, managing and control of all project aspects. The purpose is to produce the clearly defined and agreed project product that will realize expected benefits.

Significantly, the seven PRINCE2 principles that form the basis of a PRINCE2 project include:

  1. Continued business justification.
  2. Learn from experience.
  3. Defined roles and responsibilities.
  4. Manage by stages.
  5. Manage by exception.
  6. Focus on products.
  7. Tailor to suit the project environment.

Especially, the tailoring principle is unique to PRINCE2.

That´s what makes the method highly adaptable to specific organisational and project environments. Here are some benefits that tailoring brings.

  • Ensures that the project management method and approach are fit for the project.
  • Ensures that PRINCE2 project team configuration and project controls match project complexity, scale, importance, risk and team capability.
  • Allows to avoid the extremes of mechanistic and heroic approaches to project management.

Similarly, another principle exclusive to PRINCE2® focuses on management by exception.

Basically, it frees the executive from the burden of chores involved in project management. But at the same time, they keep the overall control over the project.

Specifically, the management by exception principle is implemented through the concept of tolerances. They provide the basis for –

  • Delegation of authority from one level of management down to the next.
  • And escalation of deviations that exceed the agreed tolerances in the opposite direction.

An absolute minimum of invested time that still ensures full control, is that the perfect deal, or what?

Anyway, that was your first  taste of PRINCE2®. A trailer, of sorts.

Altogether, the full cycle of PRINCE2 training takes five days to complete and includes Foundation and Practitioner modules. That applies to both PRINCE2 Virtual Instructor-Led Training format and classroom or face-to-face course format.

To clarify, candidates schedule and sit Foundation and Practitioner online exams individually AFTER completing their PRINCE2 training.

So, to sum it all up, what is the appeal of PRINCE2®?

  • Provides the essentials for successfully delivering projects of any size and complexity.
  • Applies to a wide range of industries and public services.
  • Offers a step-by-step guidance on how to achieve successful realization of a business case that serves as project basis.
  • Separates project management responsibilities from specialist product-related work.
  • PRINCE2 Practitioner certification is respected globally. It aligns with internationally recognised quality standards related to project management.

We hope to meet you soon on one of our PRINCE2 qualification courses!

And in the meantime, keep safe.
