Applying PRINCE2 for Successful Results

1 days


So you have your PRINCE2 Practitioner Qualification and you're ready to go! Then you wonder: how do I use PRINCE2 to put together a workable project structure? Project Management is in many aspects just common sense. So why do many of us get it wrong?

The PRINCE2 project management methodology is widely employed by many leading private and public sector organisations.

This one-day workshop gives delegates some practical assistance on how to apply PRINCE2 in your own environment. Delegates will be working with a scenario within the workshop, but delegates do have the option to use their own projects during the event if appropriate.

Please note: All of our PRINCE2 courses run to the latest PRINCE2 2017 manual.


Suitable for people looking to apply PRINCE2 project management methodology, to their projects, and who have the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. To make the most of the course, delegates should ideally be managing projects as the workshop content will be focused on getting delegates to apply PRINCE2 specifically to their own projects. Typical delegates will be project board members, project managers and project support staff.

Skills Gained

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Be familiar with how to apply PRINCE2 in the workplace
  • Appreciate the importance of the PRINCE2 principles
  • Understand the value of tailoring a PRINCE2 project to the specific needs of a project
  • Generate information needed to populate key PRINCE2 management products.


This one-day workshop is designed for delegates who hold the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification and want some practical knowledge of how to apply the method to projects. Typically delegates will be from user perspective, management or project sponsors or project support office personnel. Delegates need to bring their copy of the PRINCE2 (Fifth Edition 2009) manual for reference. It is advised that before attending the workshop delegates refresh their knowledge of PRINCE2.

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.
