What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) focuses on the organization of projects and provides a structured approach to their management, with specific roles and responsibilities, control and steering mechanisms, and recommendations for planning and reporting. PRINCE2 is flexible and can be applied to a wide variety of projects, regardless of size, complexity or sector.

By properly applying this project management method, PRINCE2® contributes to the success of your project. PRINCE2® provides the structure you need to successfully complete a project. It helps you manage risks better and more effectively. In addition, you can use your project resources optimally with the help of PRINCE2®.

PRINCE2 was developed by the UK Government's Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) in the 80s and has since evolved into a globally accepted project management method. The first PRINCE framework was introduced in 1989 and PRINCE2 was launched in 1996 as an improved version with more flexibility and an adaptable approach. Since then, the methodology has been further developed, among other things by focusing on various environments and working methods, such as a commercial customer-supplier environment, but also on an environment where product development is based on Agile.

PRINCE2 certification

PRINCE2 certification is a recognition of knowledge and skills in using the PRINCE2 methodology for project management. The certification consists of two levels: PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner.

PRINCE2 Foundation is a training and certification program for professionals working in project management. It is a formal recognition of knowledge and skills in applying the PRINCE2 methodology, a widely used project management approach.

The PRINCE2 Foundation training consists of a course and an exam, which allows participants to demonstrate a basic understanding of PRINCE2 and the ability to apply the methodology to concrete projects. The PRINCE2 Foundation certificate is valid for 5 years.

PRINCE2 Practitioner is a higher level of certification than PRINCE2 Foundation, aimed at professionals working in project management who want to demonstrate a deeper understanding and application of the PRINCE2 methodology.

PRINCE2 Practitioner focuses on the application of PRINCE2 in practice and expects participants to have a better understanding of the different aspects of the methodology and how to integrate it into a project environment. The PRINCE2 Practitioner exam is aimed at applying PRINCE2 in concrete projects and requires participants to possess a certain level of experience and competence in project management.

The PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate is valid for 5 years and indicates that the holder has mastered and applied the PRINCE2 methodology at a high level in project management.

In addition to PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner, there are a few other PRINCE2 certifications that focus on specific aspects of project management and PRINCE2. Below are some examples:

  1. PRINCE2 Agile: This certification focuses on professionals who are familiar with both PRINCE2 and Agile methodologies and how they can be applied together on projects.
  2. PRINCE2 Managing Successful Programs (MSP): This is a program management methodology that is closely related to PRINCE2 and focuses on the management and implementation of programs and the realization of changes
  3. PRINCE2 Project Management (P3O): This certification track focuses on the role of the project management offices (PMOs) and how they can contribute to the effectiveness of project management in an organization. These certifications are designed to enhance and demonstrate the knowledge and skills of professionals in specific aspects of project management and PRINCE2.

There are several benefits to obtaining a PRINCE2 certification, both for individual professionals and organizations:

  1. Recognition of knowledge and skills: A PRINCE2 certification indicates that a professional is familiar with the methodology and can apply it at a certain level. This makes the professional more attractive to employers and increases the chance of career development.
  2. Improving project management skills: Obtaining a PRINCE2 certification requires professionals to delve into the methodology and learn how to apply it. This improves project management skills and increases the likelihood of project success. It increases the effectiveness of the project leader, increasing his/her value for the organization.

  5. Improving collaboration between project teams: PRINCE2 establishes clear responsibilities and promotes collaboration between project teams and the steering committees. This improves communication and increases the chance of project success.

A PRINCE2 certification is a valuable asset for project management professionals and offers significant benefits to them and their organizations.

To become PRINCE2 certified, you have to go through a number of steps:

  1. To prepare: Familiarize yourself with the PRINCE2 methodology and certification requirements. Lagant offers various E-learning and training courses that prepare you for the exam. For each training it is indicated how much expected study time is needed.
  2. Exam: There are two levels of PRINCE2 certification: Foundation and Practitioner. The Foundation exam is a more general exam while the Practitioner exam focuses more on application knowledge.
  3. Taking the exam: The exam consists of multiple choice questions and is administered by an accredited PRINCE2 exam authority. The Foundation exam takes about 1,5 hours and the Practitioner exam takes about 2,5 hours.
  4. Exam results: After taking the exam you will receive your results within a few weeks. If you pass the exam, you will receive a certificate and you can call yourself PRINCE2 certified.
  5. Keeping track of the certification: Your PRINCE2 certification is valid for a period of 5 years. After this period, you must take another exam or be part of a course to renew the certification.

The choice between a PRINCE2 E-learning or training depends on personal preference, learning style, available time and budget. Below are some considerations that may help with the decision:

  • Elearning: This is a good option for people who like to learn at their own pace and have the freedom to study when it suits them. An E-learning is cheaper than a formal classroom training.
  • Training: Formal training provides support and feedback from a trainer and is a good option for people who enjoy learning in a group or who have difficulty learning from a screen or from a book.

Both options have their advantages, so it's important to consider what best suits your personal circumstances and goals. If in doubt, it may be advisable to start with formal training and then use E-learning as a supplement.
