The aim of this course is to provide delegates with sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2® method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. The Foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification. By the end of the course participants should understand the structure and key terminology of the method.
The development of PRINCE2 was driven by the feedback from end-users, project management specialists and a review panel of 150 public and private sector organizations. This has resulted in a generic best practice method which is flexible enough to be tailored to the specific needs of different organizations for all projects, including Agile delivery.
PRINCE2 is compatible with all other project management qualifications as it provides the technical structure of the framework for the project, which will complement the softer skills learnt on other qualifications.
The PRINCE2® Foundation examination is a closed- book 60 minute 75 multiple choice question paper with 5 questions to be trial and not counted in scores. The pass mark is 50% (35 marks required to pass out of 70 available).
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at project managers, project management consultants and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects who are required, or wish, to have a greater depth of knowledge of the method.
Due to exceptionally intensive nature of this course, there is 6-8 hours of online preparation to be completed and it is vital to the success of the course that this work is completed. The actual time taken by each delegate will vary enormously and will depend on the individual, their learning style, existing knowledge or skills, and project management experience.
