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 Plymouth

Plymouth is a port city in Devon that also goes by the name of the Ocean City of Britain. The city is known for its narrow cobbled streets and a maritime heritage. Plymouth lies between the mouths of the two rivers  - Plym and Tamar – and hence its name. The first settlers had come to Plymouth in the Bronze Age. It was in 1620 that the Pilgrim Fathers departed from Plymouth in search of some New World. They established a new colony at the time known as the Plymouth Colony and later as The United States of America.

Plymouth grew during the Industrial Revolution as a Commercial Shipping Port. Imports and passengers both poured into Plymouth from the Americas. Plymouth was also using its ports to export minerals such as time, lime, china clay, copper and arsenic. In 1928 Plymouth achieved a city status when three of its neighbours also joined together under the same name. During the Second World War, Plymouth was a target for the Nazi forces as it sided with the Allied forces.

Governed locally by Plymouth City Council, the city is home to 264,200 people as per the data collected in 2016. The economy of Plymouth has for long been influenced by industries such as Ship-building and sea-faring, but since the 1990’s it is turning more towards the service-based industry. In the whole of Western Europe, Plymouth is home to the biggest Naval-base.

Plymouth 2020

In 2003, Plymouth Council started the "Vision for Plymouth" – a project for the development of the city of Plymouth.  The project aims to build shopping centres, an avenue as a part of the project and a cruise terminal. Another aim of the project is to increase the population to 300,000. 2004 saw the old Drake Circus being demolished and replaced by the Drake Circus Shopping Centre that opened in October 2006. In one of another project,  the Plymouth City Council's headquarters are to be shifted and the civic centre to be demolished. The demolished land of civic centre will be sold so as to generate revenue for building the new council headquarters.at the location where the Bretonside bus station is currently located. The Plymouth Pavillion arena is also up for demolition in one of the projects. This would be replaced by a new canal links from Millbay to the city centre.
