All projects, all sizes

Different sectors

PRINCE2 is used in almost every sector imaginable.

It’s equally effective in small to medium enterprises and larger organisations.

Different industries

Support for Tailoring

It is a truly supportive framework, incorporating guidance that helps you to tailor PRINCE2 to your project or working environment.



PRINCE2 ensures consistent language and terminology across businesses and project teams.

This is also very helpful for project managers moving between teams, clients, and organisations.

Consistent Language

Partners Well

PRINCE2 also works really well when combined with other methodologies. For example, PRINCE2 pairs beautifully with Agile and is considered complimentary to the Project Management Institute (PMI)® framework.

All projects, all sizes

Clarity of Roles

PRINCE2 is often favoured for its clarity of roles and responsibilities.

Within a PRINCE2 project everything is clearly outlined and communicated. There is no ambiguity about how tasks will be accomplished and by whom.

Is Getting Certified Important?

According to the participants of a recent report, “The Power of Professional Certification” certification is extremely important.

The report was completed by Axelos. It surveyed 1,870 participants from 91 countries and 24 different industries.

Certification is knowledge and understanding quantified and underlined.

If you have successfully passed the PRINCE2 exam, it is a clear message to employers and clients about the calibre of your skill and capability.

Holding valid certification in a world-renowned methodology like PRINCE2 can make all the difference in winning clients or securing a new position.

In this report, 97% of decision-makers surveyed noted that certification brought better efficiency and a higher level of employee satisfaction.

Reasons for Getting Certified

Why do individuals and organisations prioritise achievement of respected certifications? Many of the reasons below are taken from “The Power of Professional Certification”.

  • In order to remain relevant
  • To maintain industry standards
  • To establish consistent project managment methods
  • For continuous improvement
  • To develop confidence
  • To acquire new skills
  • To bring about a better understanding of the role
  • For job satisfaction or team morale

It’s also interesting to note that we’re seeing more and more project managers opting to achieve two or more project management certifications, including Agile and Scrum options.
