    Ants Project Management Consultants is focused on providing project management consultancy services to public and private sector companies in central and southern Africa. In 2007, Ants expanded its service to include training and accreditation in PRINCE2™. These training events empower clients through the transferral of skills, knowledge and expertise. “We were so impressed with the process-based methodology and the advantages this method provided our clients that we started Ants Training and Develop­ment in association with UK based SPOCE Project Man­agement,” enthuses Matium van Antwerpen, PRINCE2™ Accredited Trainer. PRINCE2™ is internationally accepted as the lead­ing best practice project management approach. Used by the private and public sectors, the method is scalable and can be tailored to any type and size of project. In the business world today, more emphasis is be­ing placed on deliverables, especially when it comes to new projects. However, with reduced staff complements, tighter budgets and higher productivity expectations, it is becoming extremely difficult to not only manage in­dividual projects, but to also be completely in control of projects across multi-disciplinary functions. In an attempt to cope, many companies resort to project management software packages. “While most of these packages are excellent, their full potential will not be realised unless the users thereof are familiar with project management principles,” explains Philip van Antwerpen, PRINCE2™ Accredited Practitioner. “Successful project completion is dependent on project management and, when used in conjunction with PRINCE2™, the successful outcome is further en­hanced and magnified. Ants Project Management Con­sultants provides that knowledge in a practical and rel­evant manner.” Matium further notes that this accredited course is suitable for any organisation or individual who recog­nises the need for a controlled approach to managing its projects. It is suitable for project managers, project sup­port, team members and managers from any discipline. Senior managers will also benefit from understanding how decision-support information is created and passed on to appropriate managers. “APM Group, the accredit­ing body for PRINCE2™, has approved these courses and they are suitable for all who want to adopt and get certi­fied on an internationally renowned Project Management methodology,” he says. Ants Project Management Training and Develop­ment’s unique offering continues to flourish as it prides itself on its unparalleled approach to its service provi­sion by applying a rolled-up sleeve practice in direct­ing the company. “We do not maintain expensive structures such as of­fices, keeping our overhead costs low and enabling us to offer more appealing fee structures to our clients,” says Philip. “We like to compare ourselves to the best without losing our personal touch.” “We also value our clients and believe in building and maintaining long-term relationships of the highest possible standards,” concludes Matium. About PRINCE2™ PRINCE2™ (Projects in Controlled Environments) is a written description of how to manage a project in a logical, organised way, following defined steps. It is not a tool or a technique but a structured project management process, which emphasises the importance of an organ­ised and controlled start, middle and end to a project. Owned by the UK Office of Government Commerce, and launched in its current version in 1996, PRINCE2™ is not only the UK’s de facto standard process for all types of projects but is now rapidly becoming an internation­al standard, with organisations around the world using it as their preferred approach to managing projects. PRINCE2™ is considered internationally as the best practice framework for project management. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." >
    PRINCE2™ provides a defined set of processes for successful management of projects and can be tailored to suit a variety of organisations, large or small. It encom­passes the essentials for running a project, from plan­ning to implementation, and delivery of measurable out­comes. Effective use of PRINCE2™ can minimise risk of project failure. It can also lead to increased productivity and ultimately will help to achieve higher levels of cus­tomer satisfaction. All courses are available in-company, enabling Ants to meet the needs of specific delegate groups or to sup­port the overall aims and objectives of each organisation. Once Ants establishes and analyses each organisation’s training requirements, it will propose a programme that will provide the organisation with flexibility in terms of duration, size of group, timing and venue. Benefits of using PRINCE2™... 4Clear terms of reference; 4Defined structures and roles; 4Manageable stages; 4Management by exception; 4Improved communication; 4Project meetings at key points only; 4Users and suppliers at quality reviews; 4Projects under control. For senior management PRINCE2™ uses the ‘man­agement by exception’ concept, where senior managers are kept fully informed of the project status without hav­ing to attend regular, time-consuming meetings.
