PRINCE2® (an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Used extensively by the UK Government, PRINCE2 is also widely recognized and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial key practice guidance on project management.

This five-day Foundation and Practitioner training event combines theory and practice, working around a case study to establish a sound understanding of the PRINCE2 2017 methodology.

The workshop is divided into two modules: firstly, a three-day Foundation course providing a solid understanding of the scope, content, terminology and processes of PRINCE2, and resulting in participants taking the Foundation examination. Secondly, a two-day Practitioner course, allowing delegates the opportunity to gain a wider understanding of the application of PRINCE2 in a project context by discussing and practicing the application of these skills in a facilitated environment.

At the end of the programme, participants will be in position to manage their projects by using the PRINCE2 2017 methodology and optionally pursue the respective examination for either the Foundation or Practitioner level.
