Prince2 2017

Prince2®

Business cycles come and go as do law firms – but there’s a constant: the level of competition within the legal profession is fierce and getting fiercer.
However, successful project management can give the professional legal practitioner the edge. It’s a business skill used in industries and professions across the globe: of all the available project management methods, PRINCE2® is the world’s most popular. If you don’t help manage a client’s project, you’re sitting on the sidelines in terms of client care.
Legal skills by themselves are not enough.

PRINCE2® is the gold-standard in project management methodologies.

How does Project Management Work?

Modern business strategies are delivered in projects. These are unique and finite, commissioned to achieve clearly defined objectives within agreed timescales and budgets. Project management is different from ongoing management and requires specific tools and techniques to apply processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve what’s required. Project managers break up a project into tasks for their teams.
