PRINCE2 Methodology

Master the leading management methodology for process-based projects

According to the PRINCE2 Methodology, every project should have:

  • An organised and controlled start, i.e. pre-planning
  • An organised and controlled middle, i.e. maintaining structure and control 
  • An organised and controlled end, i.e. tidying up loose ends

The PRINCE2 methods taught in the Foundation and Practitioner courses cover all the activities, via a series of processes, that you will require to enable you to complete every project efficiently and to schedule. The processes include a clear definition of the techniques and project management roles you will use from the start to finish of the project.

Project management roles


1. Project Manager

As Project Manager you're responsible for controlling and organising the whole process. You're responsible for drawing up the project plans, and selecting the right people for each task. You'll need to ensure all work is completed properly and on time.

2. Customer, User and Supplier

  • You’ll refer to the person or client paying for the project as the executive or customer 
  • The person who is going to utilise the project results or outcome is called the user, who on some projects may be the same person 
  • The provider of the expertise to drive the project is referred to as the specialist or supplier

3. Project Board

  • Each project will be made up of a project board representing the customer or executive, the user and the supplier. In PRINCE2, these people are called customer, senior user and senior supplier respectively. 
  • It is the project manager’s responsibility to report regularly to the project board, and keep them informed of progress and potential problems. 
  • The project board is responsible to the project manager for providing the necessary decisions to overcome any problems and proceed with the project.

Project management techniques


1. Project Assurance

  • Project assurance – checking the project stays viable in terms of benefits and costs (business assurance) 
  • Meeting the users’ requirements (user assurance)
  • Delivering the right solution (specialist or technical assurance)

2. Project Support

Project support is the organisation of administrative work, meetings, maintaining plans to schedule, filing and ensuring all personnel are informed (of any changes or updates). A project support office can sometimes handle this work.


3. Managing Change: Risk and Quality

Within PRINCE2 we have structured processes for managing the risks of change, demonstrating the benefits and maintaining the quality.

  • Maintaining the theme of change ensures all issues are controlled through the life of the project 
  • To be effective, risk management requires anticipating consequences and problems and being equipped to plan ahead and handle them
  • Ongoing checking and testing of all completed project work summarises the quality control process that is quality management

"Thanks for unlocking the mysteries of PRINCE2 for us. The combination of your relaxed, expert training style, the useful real-world examples and the excellent resources made me confident about both the exam and about taking PRINCE2 back to my real world. I’ll definitely be recommending Project Laneways."

Tracey, July 2015

"....I really think Prince2 is going to make a huge difference to the way we manage projects.

That aside, you personally were fantastic. The course delivery could easily have been intense, dull and boring (I have been to enough seminars/training courses to know that). But you made it relevant, interesting and engaging. A testament to your skills as a trainer."

Publications Coordinator, April 2012

"Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for the PRINCE2 course. I really enjoyed it and can attribute much of that to your experience and delivery style. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who wants to train in the future."

Application Analyst, May 2012

"..... really appreciate what a great job you done facilitating the course especially as you could give so many real examples...I think that helps in learning the PRINCE2 methodology."

Project Coordinator, July 2012

I will definitely recommend PRINCE2 (and specifically Project Laneways) to my friends and colleagues; I thought it was a fantastic course."
