PRINCE2® is a well-established standard structured method for managing projects and reducing uncertainty in project delivery. PRINCE2® is used by numerous private sector organisations worldwide and is mandatory on many European public sector projects.

    Certification in project management skills is a growing expectation in many organisations. The PRINCE2® Foundation certificate in project management certificate in project management and Practitioner certification increases your credibility and demonstrates a thorough understanding of project processes and the PRINCE2® method.

  • PRINCE2 vs. PMP: What is the difference?

    The Project Management Institute’s Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a project management standard that follows guidance from the PMBOK. It covers widely accepted techniques for improved project management processes. PRINCE2 is a methodology which prescribes processes and techniques for running projects.
