Who is the course for
This course introduces the primary concepts, terminology and applications of the PRINCE2 methodology culminating in an opportunity to sit the on-line examination for the PRINCE2 Fundamentals certification. This enables students to study further for the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification.
The course introduces the fundamental integrated elements of the PRINCE2 philosophy, specifically:
- Principles - the primary methods for planning and managing projects
- Themes - the essential components of the project management process
- Processes - the set of activities that must be performed at each stage of the project planning and management process
- Conditions - tailoring the PRINCE 2 philosophy to suit the specific context of a project.
In addition, the course starts with an evaluation of key project characteristics, the functions of a project manager and the main variables that need to be controlled costs, timescales, quality, scope, risk and benefits.
The course is largely taught via lecture/presentation, punctuated with exercises on the principles discussed. Sample certification test papers are used to check understanding of the PRINCE 2 methodology and a reference manual is also recommended for home study.
