PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. PRINCE2 is internationally recognised and widely used in both the private and public sector.

Learning outcomes

  • Identify the key characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2
  • Determine how the PRINCE2 principles underpin the PRINCE2 method
  • Establish the PRINCE2 themes and how they are applied in a project
  • Define the PRINCE2 processes and how they are executed in a project

    Course information

    The PRINCE2 project management method focuses on the management aspects of a project, rather than specialist areas such as design. Once you have mastered the management principles of PRINCE2, integrating the inputs from these specialists into construction projects following the PRINCE2 methodology can be achieved easily, and also provides a secure overall framework for the project work.

    This interactive e-learning course will teach you the fundamental skills, applied in context to a project, and clearly outline the benefits of adopting PRINCE2 methodology.

    The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

    Who is this course for?

    The PRINCE2® Foundation 2017 course is aimed at new project managers and those aspiring to be project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects that may use this framework - this can include: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
