PRINCE2 provides an effective, process-based method for program management that offers best practice guidance and focuses on business justification. It outlines a defined organization structure for project management teams to follow and utilizes a product-based planning approach that divides the project into manageable stages. Furthermore, the method’s flexibility enables project management teams to apply it at levels appropriate to each individual project.
Benefits of the method include a greater sense of resource control and an improved ability to manage project and business risk. Certification also increases employment prospects and allows project managers to do their jobs with better efficiency. In addition, organizations that boast PRINCE2 certification can maintain a more consistent approach to their projects with a controlled start, middle, and end. It also provides an opportunity for regular review of progress.
Extensively used by the United Kingdom (UK) government and in private sectors internationally, PRINCE2 maintains a public domain status. The Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) established the method in 1989 and originally drew inspiration from PROMPT, a project management method designed by Simpact Systems in 1975. After the launch of PRINCE2, the CCTA suspended the use of PROMPT.
