The split into two camps – those with minimal project experience who are looking to get into project management and want to do some training (or have already take PRINCE2 and don’t know what to do next). PRINCE2 is not the be all and end all for project management training – we’d be in trouble if it was! So what should people be doing as an alternative to PRINCE2?

Introducing the PRINCE2 Principles

Project Health Check

PRINCE2 is a popular UK Project Management methodology, that continues to gain traction in other locations around the world.
