Working in and with projects is becoming increasingly popular. Nowadays employees are expected to perform a variety of tasks in collaboration with different people. In order to succeed one needs to be efficient at directing and managing projects. To this end, PRINCE2® is a useful tool and one of the most renowned and used methods within project management. Furthermore, companies are increasing their demands for documented project management skills and certifications when hiring new employees.

As a project manager for small-, medium or large projects, the PRINCE2® method gives you the framework and tools that you need. The method is scalable and can easily be adapted to your company’s projects.

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is widely known as one of the leading methods for project management in the market. It is a process-based approach to a project model which includes phases and decision gates.

PRINCE2® originates from England and is based on «best practice» within project management. It comes from the world of IT-projects but has evolved to become a method suitable to all types of projects regardless of size, sector, type of organization, geography and culture. The method describes how to run a project from beginning to end. It is generic and needs to be tailored fit your organization’s needs. The method suits both public and private organizations.

In Norway, DIFI (Direktoratet for Forvaltning og IKT) have developed their own project management method – Prosjektveiviseren – which is heavily influenced by PRINCE2®.

The number of PRINCE2® certified professionals is increasing rapidly, both in Norway and worldwide. Some claim that by 2019 the number of people holding a PRINCE2® certification will surpass two million. This underpins the claim that PRINCE2® is among the very top project management methods today.

There are two PRINCE2® certification levels: Foundation and Practitioner.
