    PRINCE2 training courses online – history of PRINCE2

    History of PRINCE2

    PRINCE

    PRINCE2 first began as PRINCE (PRojects IN Controlled Environments). The UK government employed PRINCE to manage IT projects and, as such, contained IT-specific terminology.

    PRINCE2

    In 1996, PRINCE 2 was released as a generic project management method. IT-specific terminology was removed so project managers could apply it to any project.

    AXELOS

    In 2013, ownership of PRINCE2 was transferred to AXELOS who, together with PeopleCert, now oversee the accreditation of training organisations, trainers, and students.

    PRINCE2 Agile

    In response to popular demand, the PRINCE2 method has been updated to reflect the popularity of agile trends in project management. PRINCE2 Agile describes how the governance and control provided by PRINCE2 can be integrated with popular agile development methods such as Scrum.
