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 Crewe

Located within the borough of Cheshire East, 158 miles north of London, Crewe is a railway town of Cheshire, England. With a population of 72,863, Crewe is known for its large railway station. It is also known for Crewe Works – an organisation that used to manufacture and recondition locomotives. Crewe is also known as the birthplace of Rolls-Royce. Rolls-Royce remained in Crewe from 1946 to 2002 i.e. for a span of 56 years. Now it is the Bentley motor cars that are being manufactured in Crewe.

A mention of Creu is found in the Domesday Book - a record of the "Great Survey" of much of England & Wales that was completed in 1086 to determine the taxes that were owed to the King. However, it was not until 1843 that Crewe had its first modern settlement owing to a development in the railway system that had started in the early 1840’s. During the Second World War, Crewe became a target of the Nazi forces because of the railway junction as well as the presence of Rolls-Royce engineering works.

Developments

In 2008, the development of the current bus station and main shopping area were given up due to a shortage of funds. The railway station was also to be modified and as a part of the plan, it was to be moved to Basford. Anyhow, no such things happened and the current station underwent only some maintenance work instead. A new plan was developed by the Cheshire East Council. A Lifestyle Centre, furnished with swimming pool, a library and a gym was to be a part of the new plan. A new transport hub has been planned for Crewe that would be completed by 2027.
