PRINCE2, the most popular project management training course in the UK and the one most frequently asked for by hirers.
PRINCE2 is available at Foundation and Practitioner levels – frequently taken together.
Why should I take the course?
Apart from it being one of the most frequently asked for certifications you might consider taking PRINCE2 to understand how traditional waterfall projects are run. PRINCE2 is a methodology, just one of the many that organisations choose to use when delivering the projects.
It’s worth noting though that many organisations don’t use PRINCE2 in its entirety, they tailor it or use certain parts of it. With a course like PRINCE2, you’ll be learning about a waterfall-based project lifecycle and the different components.
For a PMO practitioner, you might opt to take PRINCE2 because you need to understand more about traditional project delivery and the different terminology that is used within the method.
PRINCE2 is also a popular choice if you are specifically working within the public sector because the method was initially a government-led creation and still remains a defacto standard.
PRINCE2 – with its principles, themes and processes – has helped PMO practitioners understand project delivery, especially if they are working in a PMO and have never managed projects themselves. It helps to build relationships with project managers when you understand the approach they are adopting to managing their projects.
You have two options, take the PRINCE2 Foundation or take both the Foundation and Practitioner together.
