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 Oxford

Oxford lies in the central southern region of the England with a population of around 168,270 according to the survey conducted in 2015. It also serves as a county town of Oxfordshire and becomes the 52nd largest city in the United Kingdom.  The city also known as the city of dreaming spires, lies 57 miles from London, 65 miles from both Birmingham and Southampton and 40 miles from Reading. The city became famous after the establishment of prestigious and oldest university ‘University of Oxford’ in the 12th century. The early evidence of the city found back to Saxon period and buildings of the city depict the English influence or architectural period. The economy of the city grew is primarily based on information technology, education, motor manufacturing, publishing and science-based businesses.

History

The history of the city found its root back to the Saxon times. It has been suggested that the name of the city is derived from Oxenaforda meaning Ford of the Oxen (Oxen crossed the river through fords than bridges around AD 900). During the empire of Wessex and Mercia, the city grew as an important military frontier town.  Danes attacked the city for several times and killed during the St Brice’s Day massacre in the 10th century. Recently, the skeletons of the victims were found during the construction work of St John’s College.

In 1066, Norman Invasion had severally damaged the town and later on the responsibility of the town was handed over to Robert D’Oyly. The Oxford castle was built to verify the authority of the Norman over the area. The castle still stands today and has never utilised for military purposes. The monastic community was also established in the castle and recognised as the oldest places of formal education in the Great Britain. King Henry II granted the charter to the city resulted in the construction of the various religious houses and residents availed the same exemptions and other benefits as enjoyed by the capital of the kingdom.

The city was affected by sweating sickness epidemic in the 15th century resulted in the death of half of the city’s population. The Cowley Barracks were constructed for establishing permanent military presence in the city. The Oxford canal was built in 1790, linked the city with the Coventry and Duke’s cut connected the new canal with the Thames River. The Great Western Railway was introduced in the city in 1844, connected the town to the cities of London and Reading.

The population of the university reduced heavily during the First World War and the university campus was being used for the training purposes by the soldiers. The city faced rapid industrial growth with the introduction of publishing and printing industries in the early 20th century. The city incorporated the suburbs of Wolvercote, Cowley and Headington. The economy of the city experienced huge transformation with the establishment of Morris Motors Limited. The major workforce of the city was employed in the Morris Motors and Pressed Steel Fisher plants. With the decline of British Leyland, the city faced unemployment between 1980 and 1990.    

The city was not much affected by the Second World War due to the absence of heavy steelwork and shipbuilding industries. But refugees from London and other cities of the country migrated to the city. The university buildings were also used as military barracks for short period. The city gained a cosmopolitan character with the arrival of cafes, clubs, bars and restaurants.
