Top Project Management Service Provider Blue Maple Weighs in

Sydney, NSW –One of Australia’s most successfulproject management services companies, Blue Maple weighs in on two of the most popular standards and methodologies in project management: the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and PRINCE2®.

In a blog article through their website, Blue Maple cites the differences between the two.

PMBOK® Versus PRINCE2® Methodology

Project Performance International describes PMBOK as a useful guide reference covering the entire subject of project management. Blue Maple agrees with this and emphasises that PMBOK is clearly a guide and not a methodology.People who would like to get accredited with PMBOK have to take the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam or the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam.

“Unlike the PMBOK, PRINCE2 is a methodology,” writes Blue Maple.

ILX Group describes PRINCE2 as a de facto standard that is being extensively used in the UK government and widely recognised in the private sector internationally. PRINCE2 is an upgrade on PRINCE,an acronym which means Projects in Controlled Environments.

Blue Maple recognises PRINCE2 as one of the widely accepted methods in project management that is based around a series of underlying principles and seven processes showing how to manage a project. People who would like to get accredited under the PRINCE2 Methodology can choose to go for the Foundation Level or the Practitioner Level, which is recommended for project managers.

Blue Maple further expounds that PRINCE2 dominates in the government sector and is popular in pharmaceutical and IT departments where an organisation prefers a structural approach to projects. PMBOK, on the other hand, is very popular in construction, engineering and mining sectors. It includes different types of contracts and earned value calculations which are not covered in detail in the PRINCE2 Methodology.

The Verdict

“The two are not mutually exclusive and we usually recommend to professional project managers that they are across both,” writes Blue Maple.

Project Management Academy agreesto this conclusionby saying that PRINCE2 and PMBOK are complimentary. They also recommend project managers to attend both PMBOK and PRINCE2 training to expand project management knowledge.
