PRINCE2® Practitioner

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 for 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 also used extensively in more than 150 countries worldwide with in excess of 20,000 organizations already benefitting 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 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 take participants to the next level of understanding and application of the PRINCE2® methodology and to prepare them to sit the Practitioner exam. Using AXELOS provided sample exam papers and additional project case studies, participants will learn how to apply what they learned during the Foundation course and how to approach the OTE Practitioner exam, which is aimed at testing their ability to apply PRINCE2® 2017 in an actual project environment simulated via a case study provided as part of the exam.
