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 Dundee

By area, Dundee is the 4th largest in Scotland and 51st largest in the entire United Kingdom by population. It is one of the 32 council that the government of Scotland uses for administration. Initially, Dundee was a trading post, but with rapid developments taking place during the Industrial Revolution, it became a centre of the jute industry worldwide.  Dundee earned the sobriquet “the city of jute, jam and journalism" due to its industries of jam and journalism besides the jute industry.

Dundee has also earned itself another title "One City, Many Discoveries". This has been primarily because of the various scientific activities and because of the RRS Discovery (now standing at the Discovery Point). The RRS Discovery, a  Robert Falcon Scott's Antarctic exploration vessel, was built in Dundee. Besides, Dundee is also home to various other industries such as Biomedical and technological. United Kingdom’s  digital-entertainment industry generates  10%  of the revenue from Dundee alone.

The two universities, the Abertay University and the University of Dundee, are located in Dundee. The United Nations in 2014 recognised Dundee as the UK's first UNESCO City of Design. This again was due to its different contributions to fields such as entertainment and medical research.

Dundee has two football clubs also, Dundee United and Dundee F.C., who have their stadiums where they play their home games. All these stadiums are placed away from each other.

As the revenues from the traditional industry declined, the city planned to develop the tourism aspect of Dundee.  The plan which would cost £1 billion was started as early as 2001 and will be completed within 30 years. Also being developed within Dundee are the Dundee Victoria & Albert Museum which are expected to be inaugurated by 2018. The cost of this museum is estimated at £80 million.

Landmarks

The city landscape is dominated by a large hill called The Law and a firth called the Firth of Tay. The Law was the site of an Iron Age Hill Fort, where the soldiers who had laid down their lives in World War I were commemorated. The waterfront, which has changed a lot due to natural forces acting upon it since the 19th century, is still home to several docks that were at one time used for importing and exporting jute and whale products. The HMS Unicorn and the North Carr Lightship are stationed at The Victoria while the RRS Discovery of  Captain Scott is stationed at Craig Pier. The Craig Peer also is used by ferries to Fife.

 

The city is home to a 15th-century building, the St. Mary’s Tower, that is considered to be the oldest in the city. The Tower is a part of the City Churches that include St Clement's Church, Old St Paul's and St David's Church, and St Mary's Church. The other churches in the city that carry historical value are the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Andrew and the Gothic Revival Episcopal Cathedral of St Paul's.

Castles

Dundee is home to several castles most of which belong to the Early Modern Era.

  • The Mains Castle, located in the Caird Park, had its earliest parts built in 1562 by David Graham.
  • Another castle, the Dudhope Castle, which is considered to be the seat of the Scrymgeour family was built in late 16th century on the site of a keep.
  • Claypotts Castle, a castle in West Ferry, was built in the latter half of the 16th century by John Strachan.
  • The Broughtly Castle was built in 1495 and served military purposes until 1932. The castle served in the Anglo-Scottish Wars and the Wars of the Three Kingdoms as well. The castle stands alongside two different kinds of beaches – one of sand, the other of pebbles - on a shallow tip that projects into the Firth.
  • The Powrie Castle has only the ruins left from its 16th-century structure. It stands to the north of Fintry.
