What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments) is a generic project-management methodology for managing any size or type of project – scalable to match complexity. Launched by the UK Government in 1996, it is the most widely used project-management method worldwide. In January 2020, PRINCE2 2017 became PRINCE2 6th edition. AXELOS is the awarding body for PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile.

“Kathleen thanks very much for all your help, support and guidance this past week. Delivering training virtually is often hard to keep attention and deliver a message, but you managed to make it very engaging and informative.”

“I would like to thank Margaret Short (Course Tutor, Elite Training, Belfast) for her time, effort and commitment to getting my colleagues and me through the PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner course materials and exams. I have been involved in training and development for the last 20 years and believe these courses, in terms of structure, contents and delivery, are of a very high standard and I would encourage people that are involved in project management, regardless of the size, scale or scope, to take the course.”
