About your course

PRINCE2 is one of the world’s most widely used project management methods. Based on best-practice, the method can be applied to any project irrespective of its size, industry sector, geographic location or culture. This course provides a definitive understanding of PRINCE2. We cover its four integrated components:

  • Principles
  • Themes
  • Processes
  • Project environment

We also look at management roles required in a PRINCE2 project and what management products must be created to ensure the project is delivered in a coordinated, consistent and transparent manner.

Target

Audience

The full 5-day PRINCE2 Practitioner Certificate Program is designed for current or aspiring project management professionals who need to fully master this leading PM method and at the same time obtain a globally-recognised certification.

This program is also ideal for anyone intending to become a PRINCE2 Consultant or PRINCE2 Trainer.

Skills Gained

The 5-day program comprises a 3-day Foundation Module and 2-day Practitioner Preparation Module, which can be taken together or separately.

The Foundation module ensures that participants acquire the skills and knowledge to be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2 method within a project environment supporting PRINCE2. Through practice exams, workshops and evening study, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to take both the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams.

The Practitioner module is designed to provide the in-depth knowledge and understanding necessary to ensure you are able to apply PRINCE2 to the running and managing of a project within an environment supporting PRINCE2.

Key Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand all aspects of the PRINCE2 methodology
  • Learn how to deliver projects on time, within budget and to defined quality requirements
  • Integrate the PRINCE2 Principles and Themes into a project
  • Establish a project organisation with the appropriate stakeholders
  • Apply planning processes that ensure alignment with project, business case and quality requirements
  • Manage the progress of a project using the appropriate control mechanisms of PRINCE2
  • Prepare participants to pass the Foundation and Practitioner Certificate exams

Prerequisites

No formal prerequisites exist for this course but delegates would benefit from some experience of working in projects prior to attendance.

Pre-Course Reading

  • The benefits of Pre-course Reading are outlined in this short, entertaining animation:

Proof of identification

If taking an exam, candidates are required to provide Photo ID with a valid signature e.g. driving license, passport or named work ID badges prior to sitting their exam. Failure to produce this ID will result in their exam results being withheld until proof of ID is provided. Please note that if proof is not provided within 40 days, candidate's exam results will be null and void and a re-sit would be required.

Reasonable Adjustments Policy

Course Material

Please ensure you bring a device such as a mobile phone, tablet or laptop to be able to load your course material on to as you may need this for use in the evenings.

Course Outline

Days one and two of the course focus on the components of the method with days three to five addressing how the method might be applied and tailored on a real-life project. Delegates should note that evening work will be assigned which is not expected to exceed three hours per night.

Specific course content will include:

PRINCE2 Overview

The structure of the method and the guide will be introduced before we discuss the context within which a PRINCE2 project operates.

Principles

The seven PRINCE2 principles provide the framework for managing the project and are built on good practice developed from successful and failed projects.

Themes

The seven PRINCE2 themes are aspects of the project that must be continually addressed and integrated as the project journeys through its life cycle.

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

Processes

The seven PRINCE2 processes encompass the chronological activities that are required to direct, manage and deliver the project successfully. The activities include pre-project, initiation and delivery, and end with project closure.

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

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.
