It covers widely accepted techniques for improved project management processes. PRINCE2 is a methodology which prescribes processes and techniques for running projects. When choosing which project management certification to pursue, you should take into account that the two certifications are more popular in certain geographic regions. PMP is more popular in the United States, for example, while PRINCE2 is more prevalent in the United Kingdom and Europe.
