Prince2 2017 Foundation & Practitioner Training

PRINCE2 - the world’s most widely used Project Management methods

Description

 

Based on best-practice, the PRINCE2 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.

About This Course

 

The course covers PRINCE2's 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.

Using elements from our 'Performance Based Learning' approach, we help you to not only know PRINCE2, but also apply and tailor it for your projects. The course has been designed by award-winning instructional designers to ensure that it provides an interactive and engaging introduction to PRINCE2. Our experienced PRINCE2 experts explain the method through a wide range of individual and group exercises, case-study application, learning 'games' and practice exam questions.
