PRINCE2 contributes to your career and personal development and drastically boosts your employability. In many advertised positions, PRINCE2 has become a prerequisite.
Majority of companies that implement PRINCE2 also encourage their employees to receive training and take exams. By training employees to the required qualification level companies can ensure a consistent approach, common language,and a clear understandingof the defined processes, controls, roles, and responsibilities required to help facilitate successful projects.
To get recognized in PRINCE2 as an individual, you need to achieve certification at either Foundation or Practitioner level. As a very rough guideline, if you are involved in Projects in a supporting role (marketing, administration or technical job), Foundation level may be suffice. If you are leading projects, then Practitioner is the level you should aim at.
For companies wishing to adopt PRINCE2, the route tends to be slightly different. The biggest decision is to decide if PRINCE2 is right for you, and that requires an investment of time, collecting, and reviewing information from the marketplace.

The PRINCE2 Foundation qualification will teach you the PRINCE2 principles and terminology for when you will be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2 methodology.

Once qualified, you will be able to apply and tune PRINCE2 to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario.
