Overview

The aim of this training is to provide delegates with a fundamental understanding of the PRINCE2® project management method, and help delegates to prepare for the PRINCE2® Foundation examination at the end of this course.

The course follows the standard syllabus issued by the PRINCE2® Examinations Board, which focuses on the PRINCE2® framework and how this might be applied pragmatically to real projects. PRINCE2® has established itself as the premier approach to managing projects. PRINCE2® is generic – capable of being applied to any kind of project – scaleable and business-driven. Organisations that have adopted the PRINCE2® have claimed that they have been able to achieve greater customer satisfaction during and at the end of projects, to reduce costs and to realise greater benefit from project deliverables.

Company Events

These events can be delivered exclusively for your company at our locations or yours, specifically for your delegates and your needs. The Company Events can be tailored or standard course deliveries.

Pre-Requisites

There is no formal requirement for attending this course, although it would be beneficial to the delegates to have some understanding of project management.

Delegates will be given access to a PRINCE2 e-learning portal 10 days prior to the start of the class (subject to booking conditions).

It is important that delegates complete the pre-course work prior to attending as the content covers items essential to the successful running of the programme. It will also enhance both yours and the class's learning experience.
