However, the sad part when we consider this is many projects usually fail due to bad planning and incorrect implementation. Some projects are completed somehow; however, they often fall short of expected results. All this entitles that there is some aspect lacking in the project management endeavors.
Teams who work on projects usually are not completely adept with latest technology or have very less, or altogether no knowledge about structured management processes. This is where PRINCE2 needs a mention. PRINCE2 certification makes you a thorough professional who can then handle any complex organizational requirement with ease. It makes you capable to synergize technological advancements and process flows for delivering successful and result-oriented projects which are profitable for their organizations. So all the investment made by individuals themselves, or organizations for training their teams in implementation of PRINCE2, pays fruit.

Due to widespread acceptance, PRINCE2 is a viable solution for organizations; even if they have outsourcing projects to other countries on their agenda. Further, PRINCE2 can be very easily applied to all kind of projects; pertaining to any industry vertical. So organizations need not worry about what scale of project they need, how complex it is, what culture or geography it is based, and whether it is stand-alone or part of some program. PRINCE2 does not promote bureaucracy, rather it support consistency with continuous improvement, assessment, troubleshooting and assurance for successful completion of projects.
