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 Lincoln

Lincoln which is situated in Lincolnshire, is a cathedral city and as per 2011 census had a population of 94,600. In the early periods, it was known as Lindum Colonia, a Roman colony. Lindum Colonia had come up from a settlement of the Iron Age that belonged to the 1st Century B.C. The settlement was the result of a deep pool and the name also probably comes from the word Lindon which was later converted to the Latin form Lindum. The full name for the location was  Colonia Domitiana Lindensium, which went by its founder, Domitian’s name. The colony was established within the walls of the hilltop fortress, to which an extension was also added later on, of an equal area.

Cathedral

First of all the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral began with the see being removed from the backwater of Dorchester-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. It was completed in 1092 but had to be rebuilt after a fire destroyed it. The cause of the fire is said to have been an earthquake that shook Lincoln in 1185. When the Lincoln Minster was rebuilt it had an added portion to the east.  The construction was completed on a superb scale with the crossing tower decorated by a pinnacle that rose to 525 ft, and considered to be the highest Europe has ever had till date. After the completion of all the three spires, the central spire is expected to be the tallest man-made structure in the world after the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

The Bishops of Lincoln were said to be one of the richest people in medieval England. The Diocese of Lincoln, considered to be the biggest in England, was home to more monasteries than the entire English counties put together.

When Magna Carta, the charter to bring peace between the king and rebel barons, was signed, one of the witnesses happened to be the Bishop of Lincoln, Hugh of Wells. There is only one copy that remains of the four originals and that is in the Lincoln Castle.

Lincoln Cathedral

The bishops of Lincoln who were most known were :

  • Robert Bloet
  • Hugh of Avalon
  • Robert Grosseteste
  • Henry Beaufort
  • Thomas Wolsey
  • Philip Repyngdon
  • Thomas Rotherham

Theologian William de Montibus was the chancellor and head of the cathedral school till his death in 1213. The Bishop’s Palace was the centre of administration. Built towards the end of the 12th Century, it was a magnificent building of that era in England. The East Hall of the Palace, designed by Hugh of Lincoln, is the earliest enduring example of a roofed domestic hall. Bishop William of Alnwick was responsible for building the other two parts namely the chapel range and entrance tower. It was he who also improvised upon the existing structure and lend a modern look to it in the 1430s. King Henry VIII and James I are said to have been e guests of the bishops at Lincoln Cathedral. Some royal troops ransacked the cathedral in 1648 during the civil war. The cathedral had another recent break-in due to which the stained glass had to be replaced.
