What Is PRINCE2?

Were you aware that more than half of all business projects which are started are never finished? Among the projects that are completed, most could have been done sooner, to a higher degree of quality or at a lower cost. A well designed project management system helps managers use their time well and lead their team in the best possible way, by making sure that the project is planned and carried out using a proven system that yields results.

The acronym PRINCE stands for PRojects IN Controlled Environments and is a project management method that helps you run a project efficiently and successfully. This system is both generic and flexible so that can be used for all types of projects. PRINCE2 was developed from the earlier version, PRINCE. This second version improves on the first one by having detailed input from users, project management specialist and a panel of 150 organisations from both the public and private sector. It’s the standard project management system used extensively by the UK government, in North America and around the world.

Why Use PRINCE2?

Using this project management system in your business or organization will save hours of time and a great deal of money on man-hours. Get projects done on time, at cost and deliver top quality results to your customers. You’ll be able to start projects with a clear vision on how you will get to the end result and how the inevitable problems are solved.

This system helps project managers organize the project in the areas of starting a project, initiating the project, directing the project, controlling a stage, managing the stage boundaries, delivering the project and closing the project. The system is generic in nature and can be tailored and scaled to fit the needs of your situation.
