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 High Wycombe

High Wycombe is an English town in the county of Buckinghamshire with a population of around 124,475 in 2015 according to ONS official estimates.it is also commonly known as Wycombe. It is the second largest town lies 27 miles southeast of Oxford, 29 miles northwest of London and 23 miles northeast of Reading. The wealth of the town is primarily based on the production of the furniture. The town is considered as a blend of both market and industrial town. The city consists an unparished area lies in the district of Wycombe and not covered by an administrative division of local government. The civil parish area of the town depicts the ancient parish of Chepping Wycombe and had a population of around 14000 in 2001 census. The part of the urban area is not covered under the control of municipal borough of the town. The town is surrounded by various suburbs including Bowerdean, Cressex, Terriers, Booker and Wycombe Marsh.

History

It has been proposed that the name of Wycombe was first recorded as Wichama in 799-802 meaning the dwellings. Some stated that the name originated from the Wye River and a wooded valley combe. The Roman villa dates back to the 150-170 AD was found during the excavation executed in 1954. The town is the birthplace of the 19th century notable Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. The early settlement of the town was first recorded as Wicumun in 970. The market borough status was granted to the town in the 12th century, and the first moot hall, meeting or assembly building for deciding local issues was first built in 1226.

During the Middle Age and Tudor period, the town was considered as a mill town, focused on the manufacturing of the lace and linen cloth. The town served as a halting point for travellers coming from Oxford to London and travellers used to stay in the lodges and motels. Due to the richness of chalk in the water of River Wye, the paper industry flourished in the 17th and 18th century. Later on, the cloth industry replaced the paper industry. The furniture factories started setting up their base all over the town and most popular furniture industry, Windsor chairs took possession in the 19th century. Large terraced houses were constructed to accommodate the workforce engaged in the furniture factories.

Many locally made chairs and the useful information on the lace industries and local furniture is displayed and restored in the Wycombe Museum. The social and economic condition of the city was completely dependent on the furniture industry. The decline of the furniture industry in 1960 brought significant social problems and unemployment in the town. A large number of housing areas were fallen into slums and even completely demolished under the slum clearance scheme in 1932. The girls’ school of the town became a base for 8th Air Force Bomber Command during the Second World War, later on, the site became their headquarters in 1944.

Recently, many redevelopment projects have planned in the town including the expansion of existing shopping centre, construction of multi-story car parks, redevelopment of the town centre and Buckinghamshire New University and completion of the new Eden Shopping centre. These developments further stimulated the construction of new multimillion-pound hotel and Sainsbury store next to the Eden shopping centre.

Education

The town follows a selective educational system based on the tripartite system of education in England and Northern Ireland. There are several primary, secondary and independent schools in the town. Among those, few are Booker Hill Combined School, Marsh Infants School, Cressex Community School, Wycombe High School, Crown House School and Wycombe Abbey. The town is served by Amersham and Wycombe College and Buckinghamshire New University for further and higher education. The main campus of the new university lies on the former site of College of Art and Technology of High Wycombe.
