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 Leicester

Leicester is a city lies in the East Midlands area of England. It is the unitary authority area located on the Soar River with a population of around 329,839 according to 2011 census. It is the county town of Leicestershire and the most populous area of the East Midland region. It is located at the crossing of two major railway lines as well as the confluence of the trunk routes and the motorways. Leicester, one of the oldest cities in England located near the National Forest’s eastern end. In 1889, the town became a county borough but later on it was dissolved in 1974 under Local Government Act, and finally, the city got its unitary status in 1997. The city is controlled by the Labour Party which is divided into three Parliamentary constituencies.

History

The history of the oldest city dates back at least two millennia. The Roman settlement came into existence around AD 47. Lindum, Bridge on the Fosse Way and Roman road were built in the city by the Corieltauvian settlement. It remains a matter of contention whether development was fortified by Romans. Recently, evidence of Roman cemetery was discovered outside the old city walls depicts the artwork of 300 AD. Other remaining found include the Roman Leicester baths are preserved and displayed at the adjacent museum. After the abandonment of Roman Empire, the city was governed by the kingdom of Mercia. The city became one of the five burghs of the Danelaw for a short period during the rule of Danish Vikings.

In 1790, Grand Union Canal was built in the city connected Leicester to Birmingham and London. With the arrival of railways in 1832, nearby collieries supplied coal to the city. Large mills, workshops and factories started setting up particularly along the river and canal. This development promoted the process of industrialisation and population of the city grew rapidly from 68,100 to 211,600 between 1861 and 1901. Major industrial employers include textiles, clothing and shoes had opened their manufacturing premises in the city.

Education

The city has a number of independent and comprehensive schools including grammar schools and three sixth form colleges. The local education authority of the city was established in 1997, but it has faced an enormous trouble during the local government reorganisation. The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills conducted an enquiry and found few strengths and many weaknesses in the educational authority. Although there has been a considerable improvement in the education system and steps have been taken to improve since then included the opening of Samworth Enterprise Academy, planning a new Children and Young People’s Services department.

Economy

The city has the largest economy in the East Midlands and home to major employers such as Everard's brewing, Brantano Footwear, Cambridge and Counties Bank, Dunelm Mill, DHL, HSBC and Santander banking, British Gas, Topps Tiles, British Telecom and Caterpillar. The GVA of the city is estimated to be 15.3 billion pounds according to a recent study by Experian.  Engineering sector played a significant role in the growth of the economy. The city houses engineering companies include Transmon Engineering, Jones and Shipman and Trelleborg. The two major shopping malls, Haymarket Shopping Centre and Highcross Leicester were built in the city. 

Transportation

The city is served by East Midlands International Airport located 20 miles north-northwest of the city and Leicester railway station located towards the eastern end of the centre of the city. The airport also serves as an important national hub for mail and freight networks of the major distributors. There are two main bus stations in the city: Haymarket Bus Station and St Margaret’s Bus Station. The rail network faced rapid growth in the city with the arrival of Eurostar international services.
