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 Cirencester

Cirencester is the most prominent town in the Cotswold region situated 93 miles west-northwest of London. It is located on the tributary of the Thames River which is known as River Churn. It is also known as a market town in east Gloucestershire with a population of around 19000 according to 2011 census. The town is situated on the lower dip slopes of the outcrop of oolitic limestone, commonly known as Cotswold Hills. The town is divided into five major areas such as the suburbs of Chesterton, Watermoor, the town centre, Stratton and the Beeches.  

The Corinium Museum of the town is highly recognised for its important Roman collection. In 1840, the oldest agricultural college ‘Royal Agricultural University’ of the English speaking world is built in the city.  The Itzehoe town of the Germany is considered as a twin town of Cirencester. The twin town concept was introduced in 1947 after the Second World War to foster peace and reconciliation and promote trade and tourism. The early citation of the town was made by the Greco-Roman astrologer, mathematician and geographer Ptolemy in AD 150. The earlier name of the town was Corinium in the Roman times depicting its association with the ancient British tribe of the Dobunni. It has been suggested that the Dobunni has the same root word as the Churn River.

History

The early settlement of the town was formed in the early Roman area along with Colchester and St Albans. The fort was built by the Romans in AD 49 to accommodate two military allies supported to shield the provincial frontier. The fort was built at the place where the Roman road Fosse Way crossed the Churn and native Iron Age tribes ‘Dobunni’ were drawn from Bagendon and formed civil settlement near the fort. The evidence of major area roadwork was also found in the town. After the invasion of Wales, the tribe moved to the north and subsequently, the fort was closed. The public place outdoors ‘Forum’ and Christian church ‘Basilica’ were built over the site of the fort.

The town continued to grow and prospered under the Corinium Dobunnorum name. The robust wool trade and industry played a significant role towards the development of Corinium in the Roman times. The various Roman remains were found in the surrounding area including the large number of Roman villas near the villages of Withington and Chedworth. The town was also considered as the second largest city by area in the Great Britain after the wall constructed around the Roman city and covered 240 acres area.

The ancient market town in the Cotswold Hills of England known as the Roman Amphitheatre lies on the south-west of the town and still exists in the town and partially excavated. After the dissolution of the Monasteries, all the abbey buildings were demolished in 1539 and only Norman Arch and remains of the precinct wall were survived above ground. These further established the perimeter of a public park in the centre of the town. The townsmen of the Cirencester gained wealth and prosperity from the national and international wool sales, woollen broadcloth and sheep rearing businesses.

The town was severally affected by the English Civil War in the 16th century resulted in the death of 300 people and 1200 prisoners were caged in the church. The town became a robust market town and major urban centre with its convenient access to markets for production of wool and grain at the end of the 18th century. The town provides various leisure, retail and sports facilities as well as significant tourist trade for the townsfolk and the surrounding area. The important places to visit in the town are Corinium Museum, Cirencester Park, Cirencester Amphitheatre, Cerney House Gardens and much more exciting locations.
