PRINCE2® Foundation

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based approach for project management providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects. The method is the de-facto standard for project management and is practiced worldwide. PRINCE2 is a flexible method that guides you through the essentials for running a successful project regardless of project type or scale. PRINCE2 can be tailored to meet your organization or industry specific requirement.

Why take this PRINCE2 Foundation training?

The PRINCE2 Foundation course will provide students with a detailed knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology including the seven processes, seven themes and seven principles central to running a project using the PRINCE2 method. The successful completion of the Foundation exam will give the delegate a recognized Foundation qualification. The Foundation level measures whether a student would be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2 method within a project environment supporting PRINCE2. The foundation level is also a pre-requisite for the practitioner certification.

What you will learn

  • Learn how to manage projects or to work in a project environment using the most internationally recognized project management method.
  • Ensure that team members focus on the viability of the project in relation to its business case objectives – rather than simply seeing the completion of the project as an end in itself.
  • Promote consistency of project work and the ability to reuse project assets while facilitating staff mobility and reducing the impact of personnel changes/handovers.
  • Design plans and reports to meet the needs of each level in the project team and Project Board, improving communication and control.
  • Mitigate perceived problems and issues and focus on the viability of the project throughout.
  • Evaluate the project portfolio to bring clarity and allow improvements in reviewing projects.

Who should attend?

This qualification is aimed at Project Managers and aspiring Project Managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.​
