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 London

London, also known as Greater London is the capital city of the United Kingdom with a population of around 9787426 according to 2011 census. It is the most populous city in the country and located on the Thames River towards the south-east of the Great Britain. The city is also referred as metropolis around the ancient core and Greater London which comprises Surrey, Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Essex, and Kent regulated by the London Assembly. In the era of globalisation, the city is crowned as a leading centre in the fields of education, infrastructure, healthcare, tourism, entertainment and professional services.

History          

The history of the city traced its roots back to the Roman period and Romans named it Londinium. Recently, two discoveries found on the south bank near the Thames River showing the remains of Bronze Age Bridge gave access to a lost island in the river and foundations of large timber structure situated on Thames foreshore. The walled city of London was abandoned with the downfall of the Roman rule during the fifth century and new settlement Lundenwic was developed to the west of the old city. The city became a major port and established Danelaw in the Vikings period. The city developed dramatically after the abandonment of Lundenwic and became the largest town and trading centre of the country.

The population of the city grew from 18000 to approx. 100,000 by the end of 13th century and became England’s principal commercial and administrative centre. The focus of the city changed to private ownership with the establishment of exchange, mercantile and trading companies during the Tudor period. The city was severely affected by Great Plague disease resulted in the death of 100,000 people and also faced destruction in the large parts of the city with the great fire of London. The city also remained as the largest city in the world till 1925. London was the prime target by German bombers during the First and Second World War, destroyed many residential projects and commercial buildings across the city. In 1948, Summer Olympics were held in the city and attracted a large number of immigrants from Commonwealth countries. 

Architecture

With the presence of various diverse buildings with varying ages, the walled city cannot be represented by any specific architectural style. Few structures in the central London including Tower of London, National Gallery, and Hampton Court Palace were constructed during Roman and Tudor period. While other famous buildings include churches and financial institutions that represent the modern architecture and formed part of the varied architectural heritage. Central London has some tall skyscrapers including the tallest building in the European Union and older buildings decorated with beautiful carvings and white plaster mouldings. The other famous buildings of the city are British Library, City Hall, and Millennium Dome.

Religion

The majority of the population of the city follows Christianity followed by Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, and Buddhists. A large number of churches and well-known cathedrals are constructed in the city including Southwark Cathedral and St Paul’s Cathedral. Muslim communities are largely based in the boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets and famous mosques in the city are London Central Mosque, East London Mosque, and Baitul Futuh Mosque. There are approximately 42 Hindu temples in the city and Hindu communities are mainly settled in the Harrow and Brent boroughs.

Tourism

The city is ranked among the leading tourist destinations in the world and crowned top city destination by Trip Advisor users. The notable buildings of the city are Natural History Museum, The British Museum, Tate Modern, Science Museum, Tower of London, Southbank Centre, National Portrait Gallery and many more exciting attractions.
