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 Worcester

Worcester is a town in Worcestershire, England. It is a non-metropolitan country. It is a junction point for Gloucester and Birmingham. It is a non-metropolitan district. River Severn flows to the west of the town Centre. The Population of the region is nearly 1 lakh. During civil war era, the Battle of Worchester was the last and most deadly war in the region. The famous composer Edward Elgar also belongs to this place. The world oldest newspaper Berrow’s Worchester journal is published here.

History

Roman Ryknild Street was a trading route in New Stone age. During the 3rd century, most of the Worchester area lost to Roman Empire. Some area had become useless because of the silting of Diglis Basin. It also impacted the industrial production. St. Helen’s is the famous church of the region. The major devastation of the town did happen in 1041 after rebellion for taxation. The cloth industry boomed during the medieval era where 10000 population approximately shifted to this industry and ultimately hub for the corporate world. Worcester was the place of war when Charles II tried to regain the territory. Again he lost. Finally, he escaped to France to save his life. Worcester always fought for a parliamentarian form of government. During late 16th century, the Severn’s river banks got burst and it leads to heavy loss of property. During Second World War time, the role of the city was very prominent. It was termed as the safest evacuation route in case of the German forces invade. The Royal Worcester porcelain company puts off its services in 2009. The medical museum ‘’Infirmary’’ is constructed from old wards infrastructure in 2012.
