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 Sunderland

Sunderland is a coastal city lies at the mouth of the Wear River, around 80 meters above sea level. It is located in the centre of the City of Sunderland metropolitan borough, local government district in England with a population of around 174,286 according to 2011 census. It is situated about 10 miles southeast of Newcastle and 240 miles north of London. The River Wear flows through the centre of the town and divides in a deeply incised valley. The town’s name is originated from sundered land meaning land kept aside for a special purpose or land sundered. The evidence of three settlements found historically in a county in North East England or County Durham on the site of present-day Sunderland.

The area of Sunderland Monkwearmouth is located on the north bank of the Wear River and settled in 674 during the foundation of Jarrow Abbey by the Benedict Biscop. Another settlement Bishopwearmouth founded in 930, lies at the southern side of the river. The town developed as a port over a period and became famous for trading salt and coal. The construction of ships started on the river in the 14th century. With the passage of time, the port of the town absorbed Monkwearmouth and Bishopwearmouth by the 19th century. The town became the major centre for the automotive industry and the service sector. It has been suggested that the person who is born or lives in the town, sometimes known as Mackem. The concept came into existence in the late 20th century and not used until 1980.

History

The early inhabitants of the town were the hunter-gatherers during Stone Age. The remains of the period were found during the excavations of St Peter’s Church in Monkwearmouth including the artefacts and microliths. The area of Hastings Hill became a primary place of burial and central point of activity in the Neolithic period, the final phase of the Stone Age. In the pre and post-Roman period, the area was occupied by the Brigantes around the Wear River. During the Anglo-Saxon era, the town became an important centre of knowledge and learning and library with approximately 300 volumes was also located in the town.  

The long trench, a tactic of warfare was found as one artefact of the English civil war. In the 17th century, the three original settlements (Monkwearmouth, Sunderland and Bishopwearmouth) were integrated and known as Sunderland-near-the-Sea. The factors behind the incorporation included the construction of ships on the banks of the river, salt panning and success of the port of Sunderland. The construction of Sunderland barracks was completed in 1794. These barracks included the 80-bed hospital, soldier’s quarters and housing for 1528 infantry troops. The second iron bridge of the world was built in the town in 1796.

The town was severally affected by the major Indian epidemic Cholera, broke out in the town in 1831. The disease spread in other parts of the country resulted in the death of more than 32000 people. The town again suffered from the worst disaster of the Victoria Hall in 1883 leading to the death of 183 children due to lack of enough way to pass during a variety show. This led to the invention of the concept of push bar emergency doors. The economy of the town shifted to chemical and motor manufacturing after the fall of heavy industries in the early 19th century. The electric tram system arrived in the town in 1900, later on, these were replaced by the buses in 1940.

The town saw remarkable expansion in the shipbuilding business during the First World War and became the prime target of a Zeppelin raid in 1916. Approx. 2500 citizens of the town served in the armed forces during the war period. The town also attacked by the German bombers during the Second World War leading to the destruction of 4000 homes and death of 267 people in the town. The coal mining and shipbuilding industry declined and ended by the late 20th century resulted in the unemployment of the local workforce.
