What is PRINCE2®?

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.

 

Objectives

The 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 Examinations

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.

 

Duration

5 days. Delegates are not required to carry out any significant pre-course preparation as our blend of learning methods provides comprehensive preparation for both examinations which are taken during the course. However, the course is intensive and delegates are advised to undertake some revision work in the evenings to prepare for the examinations.

 

Case Studies

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.

The case studies are particularly important. During the course we follow a £1m project from start up to closure. In Module 2, to reflect the emphasis on tailoring in the PRINCE2®:2009 Manual, we have introduced new case studies to show how PRINCE2® can be applied to a project in a major programme and to a simple project.
