Easy access to supporting materials & exam preparation

 

The PRINCE2 Foundation course uses multimedia case-studies and accelerated-learning techniques to ensure that theory is embedded and delegates feel confident in the practical application of PRINCE2. Additional evening work will be required in the form of consolidation reading and mock examination questions. The evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend approximately two hours on these activities.

The course will cover the following syllabus areas:

PRINCE2 Foundation Overview

Delegates are introduced to the world of projects and project management and to the overall structure of the PRINCE2 method. The benefits of adopting a formal project management method will also be outlined.

PRINCE2 Principles

PRINCE2 operates with a universal set of principles that can be applied to every project. These seven principles provide the framework of good practice upon which PRINCE2 is based.

  • Continued business justification
  • Learn from Experience
  • Defined Roles and Responsibilities
  • Manage by stages
  • Manage by exception
  • Focus on Products
  • Tailor to suit the project environment
  • PRINCE2 Themes

The seven PRINCE2 themes are aspects of the project that must be continually addressed and linked together in order for the project to be delivered effectively.

  • Business Case
  • Organisation
  • Quality
  • Plans
  • Risk
  • Change
  • Progress

PRINCE2 Processes

The seven PRINCE2 processes define the activities that are required to direct, manage and deliver the project successfully. The following processes run from pre-project, through initiation and delivery, up to and including project closure.

  • Starting up a Project
  • Directing a Project
  • Initiating a Project
  • Controlling a Stage
  • Managing Product Delivery
  • Managing a Stage Boundary
