While PRINCE2 Foundation teaches the methodology, the Practitioner level is all about application—right up to the exam, which requires you to use what you’ve learned to solve a case study. This entails adapting the theory to a project’s “environment” and applying the method’s guiding principles appropriately.
Project managers need to have a new perspective and concentration while planning out a project’s lifetime, and to do that, you should be Practitioner-certified.
The PRINCE2 Practitioner difference
Before enrolling in the PRINCE2 Practitioner program, we had been working in project management for a considerable amount of time.
It helped me by keeping all the ideas in mind and, in particular, by customizing the approach to ensure that it was effective for the given assignment.
Being an “all-rounder” as a project manager means adhering to the PRINCE2 principles and not skipping or forgetting to complete tasks that are important to any project. Again, for this reason, we keep the book close by to test me and make sure that I am truly managing a PRINCE2 project rather than one that is “PRINCE2 in name only.”
Governance for good project “health”
The goal of applying PRINCE2 governance is to make a project successful.
A project environment that is safe and secure is produced through effective governance. For instance, it is crucial to guarantee that a senior user from the company is represented on the project board. This ensures that the appropriate expertise is available to offer advice before initiating a change process and that management is actively participating throughout the initiatives, rather than just passively through the use of dry, written reports.
Project outcomes are sometimes not “black and white,” but rather “grey,” and this degree of uncertainty usually places the project manager in a challenging position when determining the project’s course. Therefore, knowing a PRINCE2 Practitioner enables you to make decisions based on the information at hand and assures you that you do so while using organized thinking and keeping the project’s overall success in mind.
Observations from the PMO
Whether or not they are project managers, everyone completes the PRINCE2 Foundation certification. Since many of our projects are PRINCE2-based, they must comprehend the tenets, procedures, and lingo we use.
Our full-time project managers, however, are all PRINCE2 Practitioner certified. As a result, we’ve seen how they develop a greater sense of awareness of their role as project managers: they are more meticulous, communicate more effectively, and truly follow the proper procedures when beginning a new project.
Our project managers can make projects more visible and facilitate better talks with the project board about any challenges that have arisen thanks to their increased expertise and qualification.
In the end, the flexibility to involve the project board ensures that the project manager has the support, guidance, and extra resources they require at the appropriate time.
