Whats is PRINCE2® 2009 ?

PRINCE2® was originally developed in 1989 to address the issues that were commonly causing UK government IT projects to fail. Since then the method has undergone a couple of re-writes to take account of feedback from its practical use and to bring it in line with other AXELOS methods. The current version was released in 2009 and is used internationally. This version of PRINCE2® will be discontinued by AXELOS on the 31/12/17 and replaced by PRINCE2® 2017.

Course Reviews

  1. Profile photo of Jacelyn Jacelyn says:

    Full of useful hints and tips to prepare for the practitioner exam. I especially liked the interactive exercises in the course. Best thing is – I passed the exam!

  2. Profile photo of Nelson Manus Nelson Manus says:

    Not really a fan of eLearning – but this did the job. Wish I’d had time to do a classroom one though.

  3. Quite a complicated subject delivered clearly. Diagrams & exercises were really good.

  4. I got stuck on understanding why I got some questions wrong in the mock exams so I messaged the trainer. She got back to me in a couple of hours and explained it to me. That was so helpful – didn’t want to book my exam until I felt I’d got everything straight in my head.

  5. The downloadable App is great – but any progress made on the App doesn’t sync with the web version – otherwise I’d have given it 5 stars

    Thanks for clearing up the difference between internal / external products vs internal/external suppliers. I was struggling with that bit before.
