A Foundation in PRINCE2™
This course is primarily aimed at staff in a junior team manager or project support and assurance role in a PRINCE2™ environment who require a formal qualification in the project management method and leads to the Foundation Certificate examination which is taken at the end of the course.
Anyone employed in a PRINCE2™ project environment who requires a comprehensive understanding of the key PRINCE2™ principles and terminology.
The Foundation Certificate is a pre-requisite for the PRINCE2™ Practitioner Certificate and is therefore an ideal starting point for delegates who wish to take the Practitioner examination at a later date.
Projects bring together resources, skills, technology and ideas to achieve business objectives. Using a structured project management method such as PRINCE2™ helps an organisation to ensure that these objectives are delivered to an appropriate level of quality and within the constraints of time and cost. It is also an essential element in managing the risks inherent in change and innovation.
PRINCE2™ is used extensively throughout the public sector in the UK and is also widely recognised and used commercially in the UK and abroad. The method can be applied to all kinds of project including information systems projects.
