AXELOS has announced a major update to PRINCE2 due to be launched in mid-2017. PRINCE 2 is the world’s most practiced methodology for project management. In the UK alone, 495,711 professionals have gained PRINCE2 certification, including people in marketing, HR and legal, as well as traditional IT and professional project management roles.
In a survey of 2,400 professionals, 88% of PRINCE2 practitioners said that the qualification had aided their career progression and was valuable in their current role (85%).
The first major PRINCE2 update since 2009 reflects changes in business practice in the last 10 years and places a strong emphasis on the scalability and flexibility of the method and on how best to tailor it to the specific requirements of a project.
The updated PRINCE2 guidance, Managing Successful Projects, will initially become available in an English version, with other languages to follow. It has been developed in consultation with over 100 project management professionals and organisations from across the world.
