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 Warrington

Warrington is referred as unitary authority area in Cheshire with a population of around 208,800 recorded in 2016. It lies on the shore of the Mersey River. The town is referred as the largest town in the county of Cheshire, England. It is located between the towns of Manchester and Liverpool. The population of the town grew strongly since 1968, and it became a new town. The history of the area traced its root back to the Roman period. The Romans discovered the town at an important crossing place on the Mersey River, and the Saxons set up the new settlement of the town. Warrington developed as a market town at the lowest bridging point, a place which is crossed by a bridge at its closest point to the sea during the Medieval Period. The town was engaged in the business of textile and wool production in the middle ages.

The town experienced the urbanisation and expansion after the industrialisation took place in historical counties of England and when Mersey was made traversable in the 18th century. The vital railway corridors in the United Kingdom, West Coast Main Line, runs north to south and the Cheshire Lines connecting the towns of Liverpool and Manchester, runs west to east. The Manchester Ship Canal, 36 miles long inland waterway connecting Manchester to the Irish Sea cuts through the south of the town from west to east. The partial box is created around the town with M6 and M62 motorways. In 1974, with the combination of former County Borough of Warrington, the Lymm Urban District and the Warrington Rural District, the modern borough of Warrington was developed.

History

The early settlement of the town was established at Wilderspool during the Roman Empire. The evidence of Bronze Age settlements had been suggested by the local archaeologists. The town developed at an important crossing point on the Mersey River since the ancient times. The importance of the town grew and emerged as a market town and crossing point of the Mersey River. The early reference to the bridge was first found in 1285. The area around the St Elphin’s church, now covered under the Church Street Conservation Area represent the origin of the modern town.The town played a crucial role in the English Civil War. The old town centre served as a mainstay for the armies of the Earl of Derby and Oliver Cromwell. During the industrial revolution, the town evolved as a manufacturing town and became a centre of textiles, steel, tanning and chemical industries.

The town flourished and became more popular after the construction of canal and improvement in the navigational properties of the Mersey River. The town accepted the introduction of steam in the town and used as a source of power for its mills. The town served as a base for RAF Station Burtonwood and airfield for the largest US Army Air Force during the Second World War, The new town status granted to Warrington in 1968. With the decline of heavy industries between 1970 and 1980, the economy of the town shifted to the light industry and technology. The town was affected by the Provisional Irish Republican Army bomb attacks in the town centre and later on, a bomb attack on a gas storage plant in Warrington.    

Economy

Warrington is home to the Unilever and ESR Technology. The major employers of the town are Warrington Council and Warrington & Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In 1974, the first shopping centre was opened and covered new bus station and a Debenhams store. During the modernisation of the town centre, Warrington experienced a boost in its customer trade. There are several other shopping malls and large indoor market in the town. Gulliver’s World theme park is located in the town and covers Lilliput Land and the Safari Kingdom.
