PRINCE2 was originally released in 1996 and since that time a wide range of other Project Management methodologies have emerged. But why does PRINCE2 accreditation remain so popular in the face of competition?
Here are our Top 5 Reasons for why PRINCE remains a hit:
It’s already an industry standard
- Although other accreditations are gaining acceptance, the vast majority of job adverts use PRINCE2 as a shorthand for ‘accredited project manager’. As a consequence, it’s the first search term recruiters will use to sort through a sea of CVs.
It’s quick and low-cost
- PRINCE2 accreditation can be gained in as little as 5 days, for under £1000. That’s a no-brainer in terms of return-on-investment.
Quite simply, it works
- PRINCE2 is a proven methodology which has already stood the test of time.
It’s all about the branding
People aren’t even aware of the competition
- Whilst it’s true that there are other accreditations and methodologies which have a lot to offer, such as PMI PMP, or APM APMP, these qualifications are, by and large, off the radar
