Course Objective

PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2®) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management.

The PRINCE2® Foundation Level introduces the PRINCE2® method. The Foundation certification aims to confirm that you know and understand the PRINCE2® method well enough to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2®.

PRINCE2® was developed as a UK government standard for information systems projects.

What is PRINCE2®?

  • PRINCE2® is a structured project management method and practitioner certification program. PRINCE2® emphasizes dividing projects into manageable and controllable stages
  • Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification is more prevalent in USA, South America and North American countries where as PRINCE2® is preferred in the UK, Australia and the European countries. PRINCE2® portrayed as a “methodology” and the PMP® is portrayed as a “standard” – which can be used alongside each other. In practice, companies and practitioners choose one system or both depending on the project environment, their geographical location and costs involved.
  • AXELOS® published an updated edition of the  PRINCE2® guidance in May 2017. This revised version of PRINCE2® affirms the method’s established approach to project management, with its overall structure of seven principles, themes and processes

Prerequisite: A general understanding about project and project management will be sufficient. There is no prerequisite criterion for pursuing PRINCE2® Foundation certification.
