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 Sheffield

Sheffield is also known as the Steel City to the entire world. In its prime during the 1900’s it was known for its industry. Today, however, this very same industrial city boasts of lush green parks. The city presents the localities and visitors with cultural scenes that include theatres, festivals, street arts, music and much more. Deriving its name from the River Sheaf, the city is located in South Yorkshire, England.

Transport

Road

Sheffield links to the national highway through the M1 and M18 motorways. The city centre is connected with the motorways by the Sheffield Parkway.

Rail

The following are the routes that pass through Sheffield:

  • The Midland Main Line
  • The Cross Country Route
  • Routes that link the cities of Liverpool and Manchester with East Anglia and East Anglia.

Sheffield now has a direct connection to mainland Europe with the St Pancras International completed. There are trains from France and Belgium that connect to Sheffield railway station. The express train known as the Master Cutler connects Sheffield to the capital city.

 In 2010 the ruling government announced in October 2010 that Sheffield and Leeds would be served by the same line, which will also connect to Manchester, due to the proposed High-Speed Rail network. Another line proposed to begin by 2025, the Yorkshire/East Midlands High-Speed line, will be in service by 2032.

Other trains that serve Sheffield are provided by TransPennine Express, Northern and CrossCountry. The city has five other railway stations. Meadowhall, the second largest station in Sheffield serves as a bus, rail and tram interchange. Other commuter stations include services from Dore and Totley, Woodhouse, Chapeltown and Darnall.

Coach

The National Express and the Megabus are two services that operate the coach services in Sheffield. National Express serves the interchanges at Sheffield, Meadowhall and Meadowhead Bus Stop. Megabus only serves Meadowhall. Sheffield is connected by the National Express route 560/564 to London Victoria Coach Station through Chesterfield and Milton Keynes directly. It operates on the route 12 times a day bi-directionally. The two services that connect Sheffield to Manchester and Heathrow/Gatwick Airports respectively are 350 and 240.The M12 and M20, which are services provided by Megabus, call at Sheffield on the way to London from Newcastle upon Tyne and Inverness respectively.

Canal

A system navigable inland waterways - the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation (S&SY)  in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – is mainly based on the River Don which runs for a length of 43 miles with 29 locks. These waterways connect Doncaster, Sheffield,    and Rotherham with the River Trent at Keadby and the Aire and Calder Navigation.

Air

The Sheffield City Airport in 2008 had to be shut down. The entire traffic from Sheffield was as thus to the Doncaster Sheffield Airport which is at a distance of 29 km from the city centre. The airport used to be the site of former RAF Finningley base. The airport opened to the public on 28 April 2005. In a year the airport is capable of handling a million passengers.

A link road that was inaugurated in February 2016 and connects Doncaster Sheffield Airport to the M18 motorway has reduced the journey time from Sheffield by approx. 15  minutes.

The East Midlands Airport is an hour's drive from Sheffield while Manchester Airport connects to Sheffield directly through an hourly train.
