PRINCE2 is internationally recognised as the leading 'best-practice' project management approach within government and the private sector; leading organisations have already introduced PRINCE2 world-wide. It addresses the needs of management by providing the governance structure for effective project management and control.
The focus is on the key processes, components and techniques needed for successful project management, providing those responsible for planning and managing projects with a structured and practical approach for projects of all sizes and types.
This course lays a firm grounding for the delegate to apply the PRINCE2 method to projects in the work place. It focuses on the effective use of PRINCE2 within real projects, as well as giving an excellent success rate in the Foundation and Practitioner examinations.
The course provides time for exercises, examination practice, discussion and questions. The successful candidate will achieve the industry-recognised PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner qualifications.
This is a 5 day course.
