What is PRINCE2®?

PRINCE2®, an acronym for Projects IN Controlled Environments, is a project management methodology that promotes productivity and maximal efficiency - through following an established and proven process-driven framework. The recent proliferation of PRINCE2® has led to it being Silicon Beach’s most popular course - hence our teaching methods and resources are well established and are designed to be as proactive as possible to encourage knowledge acquisition and transferable skills. Thoroughly utilised by the UK Government and the choice of many private sector businesses, PRINCE2® is a much sought-after qualification that enhances professional proficiency and demonstrates project management competencies to employers, both current and future.

Why Should I Study PRINCE2®?

The PRINCE2® methodology provides you with the skills to gain confidence when managing projects. The project management framework utilises a common approach, language, systems, and procedures to manage risks and maximise efficient resource utilisation - hence completing our PRINCE2 certifications will enhance the smooth functioning of projects and encourage projects to adhere to business objectives.

Possession of a PRINCE2® Foundation or PRINCE2® Practitioner qualifications will significantly enhance your employability prospects whilst achieving the industry standard - reflecting your commitment to continual personal development. The differences in the PRINCE2 qualificationsand principles enables the knowledge acquired during one of our courses to be applied to a myriad of industry scenarios, regardless of size, or pre-existing management methodology in place, hence the value of a PRINCE2 certification is unparalleled. Prior Silicon Beach Trainingcandidates have highlighted how valuable our PRINCE2® courses have been to their career.

PRINCE2® FAQ's

What is the difference between PRINCE2 2009 and PRINCE2 2017?

PRINCE2 has always had a strong emphasis on being flexible so that you can tailor it towards your individual projects. The PRINCE2 2017 update allows you to do this more easily by focusing on tailoring PRINCE2 to the needs of any organisation and different project environments. Also, with the new update, PRINCE2 2017 allows you to focus on the PRICNE2 fundamentals principles whilst making the ‘Themes’ guidance more accommodating towards tailoring the project. This also helps bridge the gap between the PRINCE2 Themes and PRINCE2 Principles.

When will the update be happening?

The world’s most practised project management methodology, PRINCE2 is changing from this July. It’s been a long time coming - with the last update being implemented eight years ago in 2009. AXELOS announced the changes at the beginning of January and they appear to have been met with a good reception! The methodology has been substantially modernised to meet the latest project management ideologies which have permeated businesses in recent years.

But why is a PRINCE2 2017 update happening?

AXELOS, the accrediting body, has been monitoring feedback from all over the world and keeping up with any changes that happen over time. They are keen to acknowledge and respond accordingly. As such, they came to the conclusion that the syllabus and exams should be updated to make the courses more practical, authoritative and relevant.

The PRINCE2 2017 Syllabus: What is going to change?

There are many exciting changes to look forward to…

A significant modification to the PRINCE2 syllabus is that there will be a greater weight on practically applying PRINCE2 to given circumstances within a project. There will also be a better emphasis on tailoring the methodologies to project requirements, allowing more professionals to use PRINCE2 effectively. Also, PRINCE2 2017 will exhibit greater connectivity to agile methodologies, producing a technique better aligned with the IT industry. Additionally, the document set has been reduced in order to make certain that projects are efficiently tailored to their environment and provide businesses with the best chance of project success.

PRINCE2 2017 Exams: What we know and how will it affect current exams

The PRINCE2 2017 exams have changed marginally. However, it is important for individuals who believe that they may take a PRINCE2 training course after July 2017 to be aware of the exam changes. Also, note that more extensive changes have been made concerning the PRINCE2 Foundation exam format than the Practitioner exam.

PRINCE2 2017 Foundation:

  • The Foundation exam question count will fall from 75 to 60.
  • The pass mark has been increased to 55%.
  • There will be fewer negative questions.
  • The topic Configuration Management has been dropped from the syllabus.
  • There will be a greater focus on Tailoring and the Seven Themes.

PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner:

  • This exam will test candidates on all parts of the PRINCE2 methodology.
  • The number of questions related to different parts of the course has been altered, meaning that there will be more questions based on the Principles and fewer about management products.
  • There will be basic improvements to the exam design itself.

But don’t panic – There will be a crossover period between the two versions of the exams, meaning that both versions will be available and exam candidates will have the choice of which exam to take through to the end of 2017. Thus, this will allow companies to complete training across change over period. In addition, the validity period for current exam passes will continue unaffected.

Will the difficulty of the exams change?

Both the Foundation and Practitioner exams will become slightly more difficult, but they will also have a reduced number of questions and marks.

Will my current Practitioner certificate become redundant?

No, your certificate will be valid for its full five years, regardless of the update. However, we do recommend that you familiarise yourself with the new changes when the update becomes available.

What languages will the update be available in?

The PRINCE2 2017 update will initially only be available in English when it is launched in mid-2017. However, AXELOS will monitor and assess the new exams and guidance after the launch, after which it will begin translating the new content into the following languages: English, Dutch, German, Polish, French, Danish, Norwegian, and Italian.

Will anything change about the way new practitioners remain current?

The new PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate will be valid for three years, instead of five. To remain qualified, Practitioners will need to re-sit the full Practitioner exam, rather than having the option of sitting a re-registration exam. There is, however, a new alternative option which requires a candidate to complete the following within their three years of qualification: Hold an active subscription to PRINCE2 Membership for all three years - Complete the required 45 continuing professional development (CPD) points - Candidates can choose either of these options to re-qualify.
