Is PRINCE2 worth it? – The Blog

Is PRINCE2 worth it? The money? The time? The effort? My blog may help you answer this question.

So, is PRINCE2 worth it or is it just a ruse devised to milk you for your money? Lastly, it’s only you who can answer this question for yourself. What I can do, is provide some food for your thought.

But first, let me introduce myself. My name is Alex. I am the owner of Flexilern. And its Lead Trainer. Hence, when you buy PRINCE2 training from Flexilern, I’ll be the one to conduct it. In fact, I’ve got some two decades of hands-on practice in project management under my belt. Which means, I teach from experience. And I am experienced as a PRINCE2 trainer, too.

Prior to the pandemic, I’ve conducted classroom training in PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner modules across Europe. Training locations included Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Zurich, Geneva, Lausanne, Dublin, Cork, Copenhagen, Ghent, Stockholm, Barcelona, Madrid. And Vienna, which is my home turf.

Without a doubt, a more pressing question for many delegates can be: is PRINCE2 worth it in the online training format?

Meanwhile, since mid-2020, I had to switch to conducting PRINCE2 training in the virtual instructor-led training mode. In terms of global presence, that worked to my advantage. In 2020-22, I delivered PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training to delegates in the UK, Canada, New York, Chicago, Florida, Los Angeles and Denver, Colorado – as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Ethiopia.

For that reason I can tell, virtual instructor-led training is tough on the trainer. And ways tougher on delegates. But if circumstances preclude a reasonable alternative, it can still achieve the objective of making delegates exam-ready.

In conclusion, my posts will focus on both key concepts and some fine nuances of the PRINCE2 method. I’ll share with you some real-life experiences – both funny and not-so-funny ones – as well as offer my view about the overall utility of PRINCE2.
