Living up to its reputation as a specialist in the field of leadership and learning development, pearcemayfield has launched an audio series on the 2009 edition of project management method PRINCE2.
PRINCE2, which stands for PRojects IN Controlled Environments, is recognised as the de facto process based method for effective project management, widely used by the UK Government and the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. It was first launched in 1996 but since then the content has been regularly updated and refreshed to make sure it is in harmony with the way people are actually handling projects in the real world.
pearcemayfield was the only training organisation involved in the authoring of the most recent update of PRINCE2, launched in the summer of 2009 – when John Edmonds, head of training, joined the authoring team. Managing Director Patrick Mayfield was involved in the original version of PRINCE2 in 1996 – more than qualifying the company to give an insight into the latest version.
John Edmonds explains: “The audio guide is aimed primarily at registered PRINCE2 Practitioners who are about to refresh their qualification through a re-registration examination. However, people new to PRINCE2 will also find this series an invaluable introduction.
“Many projects are cross functional and can involve people from different parts of an organisation, who speak a different language. Projects have an air of uncertainty which has to be managed and PRINCE2 provides that control.”
There are sixteen episodes in the series full of insights and examples. For more information visit pearcemayfield’s website and download two free podcasts which talk about the importance of projects in the fast moving workplace of the 21st century.
