Yes! Unlike the first version of PRINCE, PRINCE2 is designed to be generic and can be used for projects of any nature.
With over a million exams already taken globally, PRINCE2 is already recognised as the world’s most popular project management methodology.
Individual: The PRINCE2 project management methodology is the de-facto standard for project management in the UK and is practised worldwide. It covers the management, control and organisation of a project. A qualification in PRINCE2 will not only boost your skills and confidence when managing projects but will greatly improve your employment prospects. The majority of people that consider PRINCE2 as a qualification do so for career and personal development reasons. Often this is driven by a change of job or career, where you notice that to get to the top of the CV pile, you need to have an extra qualification like PRINCE2 (even if you have been managing Projects successfully for many years without it). In many advertised positions PRINCE2 has become a prerequisite. Company: The majority of companies that implement PRINCE2 also encourage their employees to receive training and take exams. This often proves instrumental in facilitating the successful adoption and implementation of the PRINCE2 method into an organisation. By training employees to the required qualification level you ensure a consistent approach, common language and a clear understanding of the defined processes, controls, roles and responsibilities required to help facilitate successful projects.
Yes. Both the Foundation and Practitioner exams are slightly harder now. However, they are both much more efficient, with fewer questions. Also, there is now either a small focus or none at all, on non-essential parts of the PRINCE2 methodology.
