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 Manchester

Manchester is one of the major cities in the northwest of England. According to 2015 census, its population was 530,300. With 2.55 million population, it is the second most popular urban area in the UK. Manchester City Council is the local authority in the Manchester.

The history of Manchester began with the civilian settlement that was established in AD 79 on a sandstone nearby the rivers Irwell and Medlock. The areas lying on the south bank of the River Mersey were merged in the 20th century and it became the part of Lanchester city.

Manchester remained the manorial township throughout the middle ages but started to expand in the turn of 19th century “at an astonishing rate”.  The unplanned urbanisation of Manchester come to boom with the revolution of textile manufacturing. As a result, it becomes the world’s first industrialised city.

Manchester gained the status of a city in 1853. In 1894, the Ship Canal was opened in Manchester. It creates the Manchester’s Port and joins the city and sea. Its prosperity fainted during the Second World War as this war resulted in deindustrialisation. In 1996, the IRA bombing led to broad investment and regeneration. 

Governance

Manchester City Council governs the city Manchester. In 1986, the prior Greater Manchester County Council was eliminated making it a unitary authority. Manchester is a member of English Core Cities Group since 1995. Thomas Greeley granted an agreement to the town of Manchester in 1301. In 1359, its borough status was gone in some court case.

This means that 140.4 days per annum are rainy. The average of UK is 154.4 days per annum. It has high humidity level along with a great supply of soft water.

Manchester experienced the great percentage of growth outside the London with an increase of 500,000. With the increase of 2.8 % from 2011, the population is projected to reach 532,200 by 2021.
