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.

The World’s first steam locomotive passenger railway ‘Stockton and Darlington Railway’ was introduced by Quaker. The town is also known as Darlo. The town is surrounded by several suburbs include Harrowgate Village, Firthmoor and Skerne Park, Faverdale and the West Park. The twin towns of the Darlington are Amiens in France and Mulheim an der Ruhr in Germany. 

History

The early settlement of the town traced its root back to the Anglo-Saxon period. It has been suggested that the town derived its name from the Saxon Dearthington meaning the settlement of the people of the Deornoth. The name of the town replaced by new name Derlinton during the Norman era. It is also known as Darnton in 17th and 18th century. The most important English church ‘St Cuthbert Church’ is built in the city in 1183 and listed as Grade I building, while the oldest church St Andrew was established in 1125 around the Haughton area of Darlington.

Darlington continued to grow as a small market town by the early 19th century. The Backhouse and Pease families, the strong Quaker families were significant employers of the town. The industrialist Joseph Pease constructed the clock tower, the famous landmark of the town in 1864. The face of the clock and tower bells were produced by T. Cooke and Sons and John Warner and Sons respectively. The tower bells of the clock tower are considered as sister bells placed inside the Elizabeth Tower at the Houses of Parliament, also known as Big Ben in London.

The town is also recognised for its corporation with the modern railway and this event is celebrated at Railway Centre and Museum of the Darlington. The town became the significant centre for manufacturing of railways in the 18th century. In 1825, Locomotion No 1 engine of George Stephenson was designed for passengers and goods and travelled between Stockton-On-Tees and Shildon via Darlington. The Hopetown Carriage Works was established in the town for supplying locomotives to the Darlington Railway. The three major works were developed in the town including Darlington Works, Faverdale Wagon Works and Robert Stephenson & Company.
