PRINCE2 Foundation

Duration: 
3 days
Codes: 
PRT2,PRINCE2

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 2017 syllabus issued by AXELOS, 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 – tailorable 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.

Audience

This qualification is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including:

  • Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners)
  • Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers)
  • Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts)
  • Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.

This program is also ideal for anyone intending to become a PRINCE2 Consultant or PRINCE2 Trainer.The PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate Course taken on its own is designed for those who are not necessarily aspiring for professional level knowledge but who nevertheless require a sufficient understanding of this project management methodology – such as people working on projects, people initiating projects, business representatives, team leaders, those with an interest in project management or who are considering moving into that field.

If you take the Foundation module on its own you may at a later date take the Practitioner module and complete the full program.

Skills Gained

At the end of this course delegates will be able to;

  • Understand the need for project management and how PRINCE2 meets that requirement
  • Understand the PRINCE2 process model
  • Prepare project plans using product based planning techniques and undertake risk analysis and management for the project
  • Prepare information for inclusion in a Project Initiation Document
  • Understand techniques for planning, management of product development, quality control & change control
  • Take the PRINCE2 Foundation examination paper.

Prerequisites

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 provided with access to study the pre-course video files before the class starts, please reference the document that is sent with your course confirmation for details on how to access.

This PRINCE2 Foundation Pre-Course Video resource is for use in preparation for the PRINCE2 Foundation Course and those returning for PRINCE2 Practitioner.  Each short video covers a key area within the PRINCE2 method plus information on the PRINCE2 exams.  They are primarily designed to introduce or revise PRINCE2 terminology, concepts and activities to help you get ahead on your PRINCE2 course.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
