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 Gloucester

Gloucester is the non-metropolitan county of Gloucestershire with a population of around 121,900 according to 2011 census. It is a 53rd populous city in the United Kingdom. It is situated near the Welsh border on the eastern bank of the Severn River. Gloucester is a city in the southwest England and lies between the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds rural area. Roman Emperor Nerva founded the city in AD 97. The first charter was granted to the city in 1155, gave the inhabitants the same rights as the civilians of London and the second charter gave the freedom of passage on the Severn River. The town’s economy is largely based on the service industry. The city is said to have been dominated by the aerospace industry in its earlier times.

History

The early settlement of the city found its root back to the Roman period. Romans built the Glevum, a Roman fort that became a colonia of retired legionaries. The number of remains, parts of the walls and coins have been discovered, and other Roman artefacts and tombstones are stored in the Gloucester City Museum. During the 4th century, Celtic Dubonni tribe had taken control of the city after the withdrawal of the Roman Empire. Until 584, the city became a part of Wessex in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. The city derived its name from the Anglo-Saxon fort.       

In 577, the Saxons occupied the city. Its geographical location and the foundation of St Peter abbey contributed towards the growth of the town. The city was a borough with a castle before the Norman invasion of England. The remains of Northumbria King, Saint Oswald, brought to the small church at the beginning of the 10th century, attracted many pilgrims to the town. Recently, a unique coin was discovered in the north of the city dates back to 1077-80. The city had a large fishing industry in the medieval period. The main export was wool, leather, weapons and tools at that time. During the 14th century, the most significant period began in the history of the town with the convention of Parliament in Gloucester. The two grammar schools were built in the city in the 16th and 17th century: Sir Thomas Rich’s School and the Crypt School.

Transport

M5 motorway serves the Gloucester and runs to the east of the city. The north, central and south city is also served by Junction 11, Junction 11 a and Junction 12 respectively. The A38 connects the town with the cities of Bristol and Tewkesbury (civil parish in Gloucestershire) and runs to the north-south of the city, while A40, A46, A417 links Gloucester with the towns of Cheltenham, Monmouth and Cirencester. The city was the lowest bridging point on the river before the construction of Severn Bridge in 1966. The central railway station serves the city of Gloucester in England and connects to the cities of Reading, Nottingham, London, Cardiff and Birmingham.

Industry

Historically, the city was dominated by the aerospace business. The Gloucestershire Aircraft Company renamed as Gloster Aircraft Company in 1926 as international customers found difficult to pronounce ‘Gloucestershire’. The aviation history is celebrated by the sculpture in the city centre. The city is home to the large insurance company Ecclesiastical Insurance and Allchurches Trust, a large national charity in the United Kingdom. The TSB Bank and Lloyds Banking Group have their offices located in the city. A Business Park is located on the periphery of the city and has close links to the A417 and M5. The big brands including Detica, Direct Wines, Ageas and Fortis have their presence in the business park. The industrial history of the city is celebrated at the National Waterways Museum with interactive displays and canal boats.
