PRINCE2® Foundation

Managing Projects with PRINCE®

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

In an organisation when projects fail to meet the deadlines specified the end result is a product with poor quality. This is an indication of project team’s failure to handle the project. This can be attributed either to  an unstructured approach or no approach being followed at all for project management. In 1989 CCTA adopted a version of PROMPT II (Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques) for project management. The CCTA called it PRINCE (PRompt II IN the CCTA Environment). This was later renamed to  Projects IN Controlled Environment. PRINCE2® delivers better projects and project outputs using the best process based structured approach. This approach helps the organisation to keep track of the project status at various stages continuously. The PRINCE2® Foundation course provides delegates with the fundamentals of project management using PRINCE2®. PRINCE2® has two levels which a delegate can certify  - The Foundation and the Practitioner. Only after clearing the Foundation exam can the delegate sit for the Practitioner course. While PRINCE2® Foundation provides the delegates with the fundamentals of project management in a controlled environment, the PRINCE2® Practitioner course goes into further details of what is learnt in the Foundation part.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The PRINCE2® methodology helps project managers to work with their projects in a controlled environment. PRINCE2® Foundation lays the basis of project management for the delegates. At MSP Training the delegates during the PRINCE2® Foundation course get the knowledge and skills to handle projects and risks associated with them while maintaining quality as well. The delegates learn the advantages of using PRINCE2® methodologies along with the knowledge and skills required to get through the Foundation Certification Exam. The course teaches the delegates a the PRINCE2® principles and terminology. The course also helps the delegates to develop their communication between the project team and other members of the organisation. By applying the concepts of PRINCE2®, delegates, who are would be project managers, are able to save both time and money and also deliver their projects in the stipulated time. The most recent update of PRINCE2® is the PRINCE2® 2017. AXELOS felt the need to update PRINCE2® so that the delegates could focus more on the implementation of PRINCE2® rather than just cramming the theory to get through the certification.

Examination

AXELOS has removed the configuration management topic from PRINCE2® starting with PRINCE2® 2017 update. Exam questions now focus more on the implementation of PRINCE2® on the projects rather than just on the theory part. The number of questions in the new update of PRINCE2® have also been reduced. In the new update of PRINCE2®, the reasoning questions have also been removed.

ABOUT Belfast

Belfast is the largest city in the northern part as well as the second largest city in the whole Ireland region. It is also the capital city. It got the status of the city during late 18th century. The city was the hub of the Irish linen suit, rope-making, tobacco-processing and shipbuilding industries. RMS Titanic recognised as the world’s biggest as well as beneficial shipyard. Belfast played a crucial role in the industrial revolution and emerged as world’s Industrial hub during late 20th century. In mid of the 1930s, the city continued a major aerospace and missiles industry. Also, the city is a centre for business, higher education, arts, law and much more.

George Best and Belfast International Airport’s are giving their services to the city. Belfast Lough is dominated by the commercial and industry docks  

Governance

In 1613, the borough status to the Belfast was given by James VI and I and In 1888 it got the official city status by Queen Victoria. The city is governed by Belfast City Council and is part of local government district council as well. It is being represented in both the Northern Ireland Assembly and British House Of Commons. Belford comes under Northern Ireland constituency during the elections to the European Parliament.

Geography

Belfast located on the western side of Belfast Lough and the mouth of the Lagan River. This location is ideal for the shipbuilding industry. Wolff and Harland had the most significant shipyard in the world when the Titanic was built. At the time of winter solstice which the shortest day of the year, the sun rises around 08:45 and sunset before 16:00.  

Climate

Belfast has a marine climate similar to the rest of the Ireland. The difference seen in the day-night temperature is very less. Because of the warming effect of Gulf Stream, the temperature of Belfast is milder as compared to any other location. Currently, there is five weather observing stations in the Belfast that are Stormont, Newforge, Castlereagh, Helens Bay and Ravenhill Road. The hottest night of Belfast is recorded as 19.6 °C in August 2001 at Whitehouse.

Areas and Districts

During the 19th century, Belfast had grown rapidly from a market town to an industrial city. The city is gifted by natural hills that surround it and ultimately increase the beauty of the town. Furthermore, it helps in the tourism sector of the city. The city centre of Belfast is divided into two postcode districts. These are BT1 (for the north hall) and BT2( for the south hall). The number of tourists is continuously increasing since 2001. For this, cultural quarters have been developed by the city council. It really helps in the economy of the city as local people expanded their business and earning their livelihood. The name of the Cathedral Quarter has been taken from the name of St Anne’s Cathedral.

One of the main outdoor venues is Custom House Square. It is considered as the best place for free concerts and street entertainment. Apart from the communication channel, the Irish language is highly promoted and encouraged in the area of Gaeltacht quarter in west Belfast.

Demography

The population census conducted in the year of 2011, and the population was 276,459. This strength of people makes it the fifteenth-largest city and eleventh-largest conurbation in the England. As per the records, the first half of 20th century, the city experienced a massive growth in population. This arose issues related to administration during 1971 as the town was lacking with facility and infrastructure. But with the time, the development works also got pace and situation got well.
