Why you should take this course:

When it comes to managing important projects, having an established methodology is essential for avoiding expensive delays. PRojects IN Controlled Environments 2 (PRINCE2) offers a product-based planning approach that divides projects into more manageable and controllable stages. Not only can this provide invaluable flexibility, but it also makes it easier to ensure that projects remain justifiable in relation to business goals.

PRINCE2 allows users to outline the responsibilities within a project, what the project is expected to deliver and how it can proceed in a way that remains in line with essential business goals. The approach is practical yet flexible, allowing users to adapt it to suit virtually any organization or industry. This has led to PRINCE2 becoming one of the world’s most widely adopted project management methodologies.

This course will fully prepare you to sit and pass the official PRINCE2 Foundation exam, including 6 months of access and a FREE exam voucher!

Students who complete this course will have learned:

  • The key concepts and principles of the PRINCE2 project management methodology

  • How PRINCE2 is applied throughout a project’s lifecycle

  • How PRINCE2 can be adapted to suit different projects, businesses and industries
