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 Wokingham

Wokingham meaning ‘Wocca's people's home', situated 6 3 km from London to its West, and having a population of 30,690 is a market town. Wokingham, before 1974 when the local government was reorganized, was a borough. To form the current Wokingham District, it merged in 1974 it merged with Wokingham Rural District. Wokingham achieved the status of a borough in 2007.

Governance:

Northern Wokingham, at one time, was a detached part of Wiltshire that extended into the centre of the town – the area currently occupied by the Norreys, Bean Oak and Dowlesgreen estates. In 1844 it became a part of Berkshire. The then existing parish, in 1894, was divided into rural and urban civil parishes.

The Municipal Corporation Act of 1835 left Wokingham unformed. The Act was reformed in 1883. Due to the Local Government Act 1972, in 1974,  Wokingham and Wokingham Rural District merged to form the non-metropolitan district of Wokingham.  Formed as a unitary authority in 1998, the district has 54 elected councillors presided over by an elected councillor who manages the district and chairs (as a Chairman) all the meetings for a full year. The elections take place in three out of four years for the Chairman Councillor. Since 2002, the Conservative party has been in the seat with a majority. The Shute End is home to the Borough Council Offices in Wokingham.

Topography:

Located on the Emm Brook kin the Loddon Valley in central Berkshire, Wokingham is 33 miles west of central London and between the towns of Reading and Bracknell. Wokingham originally happened to be just a piece of agricultural land on the western front of the Windsor Forest. Wokingham’s soil is rich in loam and has a subsoil of gravel and sand.

The Wokingham town centre is replete with residential areas in almost every direction. The residential areas in the east are home to Dowlesgreen, Norreys, Keephatch and Bean Oak, in the west are Woosehill and  Emmbrook in the northwest. To the south, the areas include Wescott and Eastheath. Other residential areas include Woodcray and Luckley Green which have been present for a long time.

The last 8 decades have seen a lot of development in Wokingham. Dowlesgreen and Woosehill were built on farmland in the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s. Bean Oak was also developed during the same period. Keephatch came to be built in the '90s decade. The Norreys Estate came into existence in the 1960s. The  Norreys Avenue is. however, the oldest residential road having been built in the 1940’s. Norreys Avenue shaped as a horseshoe is located on Norreys Manor (now demolished). Because of this much of the manufactured houses were styled like those belonging to the 1940’s.The road also is home to some brick houses and to three blocks for police residential quarters.
