What Is PRINCE2?
According to the PRINCE2 website, PRINCE2 or PRojects IN Ccontrolled Environments is a “de facto standard used extensively by the UK Government and is widely recognized and used in the private sector, both in the UK and Internationally.”
Like the Project Management Institute (PMI) both organizations offer teachings and guidance on project management best practices along with membership and networking benefits and those all-important certification tests such as the PRINCE 2 Foundation Test.
PRINCE2 concepts include business justification, organized structural project management teams, product or process-based planning, effective and manageable project stages, and flexibility components designed for each project in order to be successful.
