What is PRINCE2?
PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments) is a widely used internationally recognized process-based method for effective project management. PRINCE2 is the de facto project management standard for public projects in the UK.
PRINCE2 is a project management method, it means that it specifically recommends all aspects to be implemented for successful project management. It provides concepts and terminology, principles, roles, processes and practices. However, although it does not provide rigid recommendations but requires to be tailored to the needs of any organization and for any type and size of project.
PRINCE2 was initially adopted as a traditional project management method, in context where requirements can be initially defined and where a plan is designed to implement the final outputs in one or more stages with other constraints (e.g., cost and quality) maintained within pre-defined tolerances too.
In the last twenty years agile project management emerged as a better suited alternative for the management of projects in some contexts (e.g., when the initial requirements are uncertain). PRINCE2 Agile is the adaptation of PRINCE2, suited for these contexts. Read more information about PRINCE2 Agile.
PRINCE2 evolved in 2017 to its latest version now named PRINCE2 6th Edition (formerly PRINCE2 2017). However, for some languages the latest version is not available yet and students should refer to the previous one (named PRINCE2 5th Edition, formerly PRINCE2 2009). Read more information about the differences between PRINCE2 6th and 5th edition.
PRINCE2 fits in with the best practice of Axelos for the management of Portfolio, Programme and Project Management and therefore integrates well with MoP®, P3O® and MSP® among others.
Axelos is the organization proprietary of the intellectual rights of PRINCE2 and Peoplecert is the organization administering and issuing the related certifications on behalf of Axelos.
What are the Key Benefits of PRINCE2?
PRINCE2 has proven to provide many benefits to organizations adopting it. This is the main reason why it has become very popular.
Some of the key benefits experienced are, among others:
- a common language and approach
- it increases resources' knowledge about their role in project management
- it provides highly valuable tools to ensure good project management
- it ensures that the relevant stakeholders are well represented in the planning and decision-making processes of the project
- it ensures more effective involvement of the relevant stakeholders in the approval and management of the projects
This drives better project management that in turns improves business performances.

PRINCE2 Certification Training Pathway
The PRINCE2 qualification scheme foresees two levels of certifications with corresponding exams: Foundation and Practitioner.
PRINCE2 Foundation certification
The aim of the PRINCE2 Foundation certification is to ensure that the candidate knows and fully understands the methodology required to be able to work with or as part of a PRINCE2 project management team. The PRINCE2 Foundation level is a prerequisite of next level, PRINCE2 Practitioner.
PRINCE2 Practitioner certification
The PRINCE2 Practitioner certification provides greater insight on how to contextualize and apply the elements of PRINCE2. The aim of the course is to ensure and confirm, by passing the final exam, that the candidate is able to apply the method to a range of real projects.

What to do to get PRINCE2 certified
You can prepare for the PRINCE2 examinations (both Foundation and Practitioner levels) in several ways. You can decide to learn autonomously and directly attempt the examinations, but this approach is recommended only when the candidate has already a good level of knowledge in Project Management and has access to PRINCE2 official manual.
The recommended approach is following accredited official courses that have been checked by Peoplecert on behalf of Axelos and that covers all the topics needed to know for the examinations at the correct level of depth. This approach not only is more effective, but it is also more efficient in most cases as it allows to focus on what is really needed for successful learning.
The PRINCE2 courses are run by qualified and certified PRINCE2 teachers, and they are designed based on solid experiences in the implementation of PRINCE2 in organizations of all sizes and sectors.
PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner courses can be followed in different ways:
- on pre-scheduled dates: traditional classroom training at iLEARN premises
- in-house: traditional classroom training scheduled based on client needs and at customer's or iLEARN premises
- Distant-learning: following a remote classroom by means of a web-conference
- E-Learning: training provided through our online learning management system from anywhere and anytime
- ONE-to-ONE: access to e-Learning platform and interactive sessions via web-conference with the accredited teacher
iLEARN also provides the PRINCE2 FULL offer that allows to do two levels of PRINCE2 trainings (PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner) in 5 days and to pass the two PRINCE2 certification exams
