PRINCE 2 comes to Sri Lanka

Institute of Professional & Skills Development proudly announces the launching of Project Management Methodology PRINCE2® Foundation Certification Training in Sri Lanka.

What is PRINCE 2

PRINCE, which stands for Projects in Controlled Environments, is a project management method covering the organization, management and control of projects.

PRINCE was first developed by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA, now part of the Office of Government Commerce) in 1989 as a UK Government standard for IT project management.

Since its introduction, PRINCE has become widely used in both the public and private sectors and is now UK's de facto standard for generic project management, not just IT projects.

The latest version of the method, PRINCE2, was designed to incorporate the requirements of existing customers and enhance the method towards a generic, best-practice approach for the management of all types of projects.

The design and development work was undertaken by a consortium of project management specialists, and over 150 public and private sector organizations were involved in a Review Panel which provided valuable input and feedback to the consortium. The development work was completed in March 1996 and the PRINCE2 manual ("Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2") is published by TSO.

RINCE2 is a process-based approach for project management providing an easily tailored and scaleable method for the management of all types of projects. Each process is defined with its key inputs and outputs together with the specific objectives to be achieved and activities to be carried out.
The method describes how a project is divided into manageable stages enabling efficient control of resources and regular progress monitoring throughout the project. The various roles and responsibilities for managing a project are fully described and are adaptable to suit the size and complexity of the project, and the skills of the organization.

Project planning using PRINCE2 is product-based which means the project plans are focused on delivering results and are not simply about planning when the various activities on the project will be done.


The course is highly interactive with numerous exercises with strong emphasis on relating the method to an organization's projects. It uses a syndicate-based case study as a continuous theme to re-enforce the learning environment and build upon both skills and knowledge.


No defined eligibility criteria. Basic knowledge of Project Management would be ideal.

The Foundation Level is the first qualification that is required to become a PRINCE2® Practitioner. This level is aiming to measure whether a candidate could act as an informed member of a project management team on a project using the PRINCE2® method, within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. To this end they need to show they understand the principles and terminology of the method.

The Practitioner Level Candidates must pass the Foundation exam before proceeding to the Practitioner level.
