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.

It is situated 30 miles northwest of London and 22 miles southeast of Milton Keynes.

History

The traces of the early human settlement of the area was found at Mixes hill and Round Green. The 250,000 years old Palaeolithic encampments were also found at the same place. The remains of the Neolithic period included Waulud’s Bank is much more common. It has been believed that the town is discovered by the Anglo-Saxons in the 6th century and named the city after River Lea. The town’s population was around 800, and the economy was based on the agriculture. The work of the St Mary’s Church was completed in 1137. In 1139, a motte and bailey castle was built, later on, it was demolished in 1154. The place of the castle is now occupied by British fashion and homeware retailer, Matalan. There were six watermills in the town during the Medieval Period.  

In the 13th century, a market for surrounding villages was held in the town every year. The second fair was granted to the town from 1338 with the growth of the town. The town was severally affected by the large fire in 1336. However, the town was rebuilt rapidly after the fire. The agriculture base of the town was replaced by brick making industry in the 16th century, and many older wooden houses were rebuilt in brick. The Royalists entered the town during the English Civil War and demanded goods and money in the 17th century. The royalists were attacked by parliamentary forces, and most of the royalists escaped from the town. The hat making industry dominated the economy of the town by the 18th century. The hat making business is still into operations but on the very smaller scale. In 1722, the first Luton Workhouse was built on Dunstable Road.

The population of the town was recorded 3095 in 1801. The town saw a large expansion in the 19th century resulted in the population of around 39,000 by 1901. The gas was supplied to the town in 1834 and gas street lights were elevated in 1847. The work of water and sewerage system was completed in 1860 followed by the major epidemic cholera spread in the town in 1848. The town gained the status of the borough in 1876. The hat making industry was replaced by other industries in the 20th century. The largest car plant was opened by Vauxhall Motors in 1905 and employed 30,000 people. The production of cars was ended in 2000, and the plant closed in 2002.
