PRINCE2

Overview

PRINCE2 is a structured project management method used extensively throughout the public sector and commercially in the UK. It is also widely recognised and used in other countries. The method can be applied to all kinds of project including information systems projects.

We only use training material we've developed ourselves. Our materials are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that they reflect, and add value to, the latest version of the PRINCE2 manual. You'll find clear, well designed quick reference guides to all the major elements of PRINCE2 and realistic case studies which illustrate how the method can be used in the real world. These case studies are particularly important for practical understanding. During the course we follow a £1m project from start up to closure. Then, to reflect the new emphasis on tailoring in the PRINCE2 : 2009 manual, we introduce new case studies to show how PRINCE2 can be applied to a simple project as well as a project in a major programme.

Our PRINCE2 courses are far more than just exam crammers and our trainers go out of their way to make sure that delegates are able to use PRINCE2 in the real world. At the same time, we offer an exam promise for both the Foundation and Practitioner. Should you fail to pass then you can resit the course once again for free, paying only your exam costs and a £10 per day contribution to your lunches and refreshments.

This course will enable delegates to:

  • Apply the main PRINCE2 themes, processes and techniques.
  • Develop and use key project management information products including:
    • Business case.
    • Project brief.
    • Project initiation document.
    • Quality, risk and communication strategies.
    • Formal and informal reports.
  • Prepare project plans using the product-based planning technique.
  • Undertake project risk analysis and management.
  • Apply the PRINCE2 processes used to manage quality, product development and change control.
  • Tailor PRINCE2 to a specific business environment.
  • Prepare for and take the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams.

Audience

This five day class is perfect for anyone filling a significant role in a PRINCE2 project including project managers, team leaders, project assurance and project support staff.

The course provides comprehensive preparation for both the PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner examinations, administered by the Association of Project Managers Group (APMG).

For training for just one of these exams, please see our PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate course or our PRINCE2 Practitioner Examination Workshop and Re-registration course.

For those who are looking for an overview of the PRINCE2 methodology, including its advantages and applicability, we also offer a one day PRINCE2 Overview for Managers.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course, other than a basic awareness of project work in the delegate's own business environment.

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.
