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 Hinckley

Hinckley, in southwest Leicestershire between the cities of Leicester and Coventry,  is the second biggest town in terms of area. Hinckley is administered by the council of Hinckley and Bosworth Borough.

 Places

  • The Battle of Bosworth: The site of the Battle of Bosworth is located in Hinckley. The site houses an interpretation centre at Ambion Hill, where King Richard III set up camp before proceeding further for battle. Many soldiers who died during the battle are buried at St James's Church in Dadlington. The place is now a shrine for the ones who lost their lives.
  • Hinckley Museum: The Museum is home to 17th-century knitter’s cottages made from timber.
  • Stoke Golding: The site is home to a very fine arcade that can be found in some of the most beautiful medieval period churches.
  • St Mary's Church: It is a 13th-century church dedicated to Virgin Mary and located in the centre of Hinckley. Richard Smith was a young horse rider who was murdered in 1727. A tombstone dedicated to the youth is present in the courtyard. Every year on 12th April, this tombstone bleeds. April 12 is the date when the youth was murdered. The church remains open daily from 10.00 to 4.00 pm, and during the services on Sunday.
  • Parks Hollycroft Park: The park actually belonged to the Atkins family but in 1934 the Atkins handed over the park to the city authorities so it could be opened to the public. The park is very much liked by those who wish to play tennis and golf. The park houses various tennis courts, a bowling green, gardens, golf course and a bandstand. Many big events in the town take place at this park. The park in the years 2010 to 2012 received the Green Flag Status for achieving high standards.

 Other places that could attract visitors are the Brodick Park in the west of Hinckley and the Ashby Canal. The park with all its trees acts as a nature reserve. On the other hand, the canal is the longest curved canal in England passing through Hinckley.

Transport

The Hinckley town is equally placed at a distance of 19 km from both Coventry and Leicester. The town of Ibstock lies 18 km to the north on the A447 motorway.

Roads

It was in the early 1990’s that the A47 was by-passed as a result of the completion of the Normandy Way. This not only decreased congestion in the town, it was also helpful in the commercial development of the town along the A47 route. Hinckley has two motorways the A5 and the M69 with the M69 linking Hinkley to Leicester, Coventry and the two motorways the M6 and the M1.

 Bus

The main operators of the bus services in Hinckley are the Hinckley Bus. The service has routes for Barwell, Burbage, Earl Shilton, Leicester and Nuneaton. Up until 2008, a number of services were operated for rural areas by  Arriva. This stopped when Arriva was sold to Centrebus Holdings. Arriva regained the stake from Centrebus Holdings in 2013. Other major bus service operators in Hinckley include Stagecoach and Arriva Fox County.

Railway

The Hinckley railway station lies on the Birmingham to Peterborough Line on the Nuneaton–Leicester section.There are regular services being operated via Narborough and Nuneaton between Birmingham and Leicester. Residents can journey to London via the West Coast Main Line or through Midland Main Line. The Midland route terminus is the London St Pancras which ever since November 2007 has been the home of Eurostar international services.
