AXELOS launches PRINCE2® 2017
Adrian Hicks, managing Director of Kalamunda Consulting Ltd, FSB Northampton Branch Secretary and Vice-Chair has been working with Axelos to develop the examinations to support the launch of PRINCE2 2017. Adrian, his fellow director and FSB member Stephanie Woodhouse-Hicks attended the event to celebrate the launch of PRINCE2 2017, which was hosted by Axelos on 4 July 2017 at the Banking Hall in the City of London. The well-attended evening featured brief presentations from AXELOS CEO Peter Hepworth, AXELOS Head of PPM Product Development Cameron Stewart, as well as a talk from the world record-breaking polar explorer and repeat TED guest speaker, Ben Saunders.
This updated PRINCE2 affirms the method’s tried and tested approach to project management, with its overall structure of seven principles, themes, and processes. In the new PRINCE2 guide, the themes chapters have been restructured to enhance flow and readability and to accommodate important new material on how to tailor projects.
The update is characterized by an emphasis on:
- tailoring PRINCE2 to the needs of organizations and project environments
- the principles that underpin PRINCE2
- greater clarity on the link between the themes and principles
- the restructuring of the themes guidance to accommodate specific examples of tailoring
- the practical application of the guidance, with numerous examples, hints, and tips.
The new guidance, available from 10 July 2017, reflects a wealth of expert feedback from PRINCE2 practitioners, who successfully apply the method in today’s dynamic working environment, and who are well aware of the ever-growing pressure to achieve more for customers and stakeholders.
The event was a celebration of the continued success of PRINCE2 providing the perfect opportunity for us to share the results of AXELOS’ hard work with partners, industry leaders, representatives from the Cabinet Office, AXELOS members involved in the development of the update, and peers from across the project and programme management community.

We are all aware of the problems about keeping our information secure.
We see in the newspapers and on our televisions stories about this company and that company having had their websites hacked and their data stolen. This all creates Fear Uncertainty and Doubt in our minds - but what should we do about it.
- Cyber Security is about maintaining our information
- Confidentiality - only those who we want to see it get to see it
- Integrity - that it is right and only those we authorise can change it
- Availablilty - that it is available when it is needed.
Our security specialist, Adrian Hicks, holds accreditation from CESG the UK Governments Technical Security Authority, and can assist you in these objectives.
Cyber Essentials is an industry supported certification scheme developed by the UK Government. The scheme sets out critera against which an organisation can measure their cyber-security systems.
Specific learning difficulties often occur in people of average or above average intelligence and they involve problems with one or more of the basic processes used in understanding or using spoken or written language. Examples of SpLD's are dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. Difficulties experienced may include problems with word recognition, aspects of reading comprehension, aspects of writing and/or spelling. The exact nature and extent of these difficulties will vary from one student to another.
