Description:
This five-day accredited course provides participants with a thorough grounding in PRINCE2 and comprises of three main elements. The first provides coverage of PRINCE2 principles: the need for structured project management, why pragmatic and intelligent use of methods is so important, and how PRINCE2 can be employed to achieve business-related objectives. The second element considers the method itself: what PRINCE2 looks like, how the major components & processes such as planning and control work on their own as well as together, and how the roles associated with the PRINCE2 method can be made really effective. The third element deals with the implementation of PRINCE2 and provides sound, practical advice on introducing the method into a range of different environments, always bearing in mind the need to keep bureaucracy to a minimum. Presented by skilled lecturers with extensive experience in the practical application of PRINCE2, the course includes examination coaching and practice using sample questions. All delegates will sit the PRINCE2 Foundation examination (a multiple choice paper) in the late afternoon of the third day of the course. Delegates who wish to appear on the central register for qualified PRINCE2 Practitioners may sit the PRINCE2 Practitioner examination on the fifth day of the course. Flexibility is a key issue within the PRINCE2 examination, therefore delegates can either take the examination on the final day of the course or at a later date when they are feeling more confident of their understanding of the method and its application. Delegates choosing to take the examination at a later date will attend the first 3 days of the course and return to attend the final 2 days, taking the PRINCE2 examination on the second day. When making your booking please advise of your attendance preference. This course is fully compliant with the latest version of PRINCE2, and carries the award of 37.5 Professional Development Units (PDU`s) for PMI re-certification. (PRINCE2 is a Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce)
Prerequisites:
Delegates will be provided read ahead material approximately 10 days prior to attending the course. The materials will include a suggested study guide and count down to the event. Success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials.
