What does it mean to be a professional? It means that you know something. To be a professional in anything means that you understand what you are doing. It means that you have been trained or educated on how to do something. We all know what a doctor, lawyer or teacher is, but we wouldn’t call them professionals.
PRINCE 2 is the leading standard for enterprise project management.
It was developed by a professional group, the Prince 2 Foundation, to address the project management needs of those with complex business requirements.
PRINCE 2 is the global standard of project management within the public sector. It is an approach based on six disciplines: project definition, business Prince2 foundation process analysis, quality planning and control, risk identification and mitigation, configuration management, and project and portfolio management.
The PRINCE 2® Practitioner qualification has been developed specifically for practitioners who have project management responsibilities, whether in government or commercial organisations. It is an international standard for the effective practice of project management.
It aims to enable practitioners to demonstrate that they are competent at identifying, defining and implementing projects that meet their organisation’s requirements.
PRINCE 2 provides a project management structure that allows practitioners to adapt and apply their own skills, knowledge and experience to meet their organisation’s specific requirements.
