Introduction to PRINCE2® Project Management

Introduction to PRINCE2® Project Management

This interactive e-learning course is ideal for anyone who wants to get an overview of PRINCE2® project management. It is designed to give a background into project management and how PRINCE2® methodologies are relevant to the running of successful projects. It also gives the candidate an understanding of what the Official PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner qualifications will offer them. It is ideal for anyone who wants to be involved in project management but is unsure of the PRINCE2® methodology.

PRINCE2® is internationally accepted as the leading “best practice”, process based project management approach in both the public and private sectors.

PRINCE2® stands for “PRojects IN a Controlled Environment” and the methodology can be applied regardless of project scale, type, organisation, geography or culture. By considering the key variables involved in any project (costs, timescales, quality, scope, risk and benefits), it allows the project manager to address the planning, delegation, monitoring and the control of the project using a framework of processes and themes.

Accredited PRINCE2® personnel are highly sought after and many organisations consider this to be a minimum requirement for anyone looking to contribute to projects. In addition to organisations benefitting from far better controlled and managed projects, the individuals who understand and can implement the methodology have far higher chances of success in their careers.
