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 Poole

Poole is a large coastal town lies on the southern shore of England with a population of around 147,645 according to 2001 census. It is a seaport in the county of Dorset located about 33 kilometres east of Dorchester. In 1997, the town granted a unitary authority and Borough of Poole administers the local council. Poole along with the towns of Christchurch and Bournemouth, it forms the part of Poole-Bournemouth urban area or South Dorset conurbation. It is the second largest town in Dorset. The early history of the town found back before the Iron Age. The town developed as an important port in the 12th century, and the wealth of the town grew with the introduction of the wool trade. The town made strong trade links with the North America. It became one of the busiest ports in the United Kingdom in the 18th century.

During the Second World War, the town served as the main departing point for Normandy landings, also known as Operation Neptune where landing operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy took place on D-Day. The town is considered as an attractive tourist destination and famous for its large natural Harbour, Blue Flag beaches and the Lighthouse arts centre. With passenger ferry and English Channel freight services, the town became an important commercial port of the country. Poole is home to Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and Royal Marines.

History

The name of the town is developed from the English word pool meaning a place near a creek or stream of water. It has been suggested that the area around the Poole has been occupied from the last 2500 years. The Romans took over the settlement of Iron Age during the invasion of Britain in the first century. The town became an essential part of the Kingdom of Wessex during the Anglo-Saxons period, inhabited Great Britain in the 5th century. The town was used as a fishing and Harbour base, where ships main stayed on their passage to the River Frome. The town was considered as an important Anglo-Saxon town of Wareham, English county of Dorset. In 876, the town faced two major large-scale raids by Vikings and Canute also used the port of the town to raid and pillage Wessex.

The importance of Wareham declined, and the town grew rapidly as a busy port after the Norman occupation of England.  The Great Charter of Elizabeth I granted a county corporate, and subsequently, the town got legal independence from Dorset. The Newfoundland fisheries and North American colonies established a successful commerce with the town in the 16th century. The town experienced the most prosperous period from the early 18th century till early 19th century. The prosperous phase brought new developments including the replacement of medieval buildings with the terraced housing and Georgian mansions. The end of the Napoleonic Wars ended the Newfoundland trade, and most merchants ceased trading. During the industrialisation, the town grew rapidly and became a place for mercantile prosperity. The port of the town lost business as ships became too large for the shallow Harbour in the 19th century. The coastal shipping trade ended with the arrival of railways in 1847.

Economy

The economy of Poole is more balanced as compared to the rest towns of Dorset. The manufacturing sector flourished in 1960, whereas service sector including the relocation of the office-based employers expanded between the 1980 and 1990. The town is home to the world’s largest motor yachts builder Sunseeker and engaged more than 1800 workforce in the shipyards of the town. Other major employers in the town include Lush, Ryvita, Faerch Plast, Siemens and Kerry Foods. The economy of the town is based mainly on the service sector. Major employers in the service sector include Barclays Bank, Bank of New York Mellon, Arts University Bournemouth, Merlin Entertainments and American Express Bank.
