Projects fail for a variety of reasons including poor planning, lack of defined quality criteria, poor understanding of the business drivers, inadequate control, and lack of senior management involvement – in other words, lack of a structured best practice approach to project delivery.
PRINCE2® (2017 is the current version) is a structured, process-based approach to project management providing a methodology which can be easily tailored and scaled to suit all types of projects. It is the de facto standard for project management in the UK Government and is used extensively in more than 150 countries worldwide with in excess of 20,000 organizations already benefiting from its powerful approach. It can be used easily in combination with the Project Management Institute (PMI)®A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) to provide a robust project management methodology, or to augment an existing PMBOK® Guide-based methodology with additional rigor around areas such as Quality, Organization and Benefits Realization.
The goals of this course are to provide participants with a thorough grounding in PRINCE2® 2017 and its benefits and to prepare them to sit the Foundation exam.
