The learning and development (L&D) consultancy, Explosive Learning Solutions (ELS) is about to train its 1,000th person in effective project management techniques.
Since ELSâ€™s inception just over ten years ago, it has been running regular PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2Â®) courses – a globally recognised, process-based, method for effective project management. PRINCE2Â® is the standard method used by the UK government and is used extensively in both the public and private sectors.
Cath Convery, Head of Learning at ELS), said, â€œEffective project management is a key skill in all sectors of the economy â€“ in the private and public sectors, as well as in academia. Thatâ€™s demonstrated by the continuing level of demand weâ€™re experiencing for PRINCE2Â® and the related courses that we offer.
â€œFor individuals, PRINCE2Â® training and certification demonstrates, to existing or new employers, an understanding of this approach to project management and how it can be applied,â€ added Cath. â€œImplementing PRINCE2Â® methodology in your business practices promotes smoother working relationships with other like-minded companies – and keeps your projects under control when working with organisations that use alternative business practices.
â€œAlthough weâ€™re predominantly a consultancy company, ELS has always delivered quality and effective training into the corporate sector,â€ Cath said. â€œWe deliver internationally-recognised accredited courses and, where required, we design bespoke training packages around these.â€
The PRINCE2Â®Â method is in the public domain and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management. Its key features are:
- A focus on business justification
- A defined organisation structure for the project management team
- A product-based planning approach
- An emphasis on dividing the project into manageable and controllable stages
- A flexibility that can be applied at a level appropriate to the project.
PRINCE2Â® originates in 1996 â€“ having been contributed to by a consortium of some 150 European organisations. PRINCE, which was established in 1989, has its origins in PROMPT, a project management method created in 1975.
