Description:
This three-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. This course is fully compliant with the latest version of PRINCE2, and carries the award of 22.5 Professional Development Units (PDU`s) for PMI re-certification. (PRINCE2 is a Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce)
