COURSE OVERVIEW

PRINCE2® is a de facto standard and is widely recognised and used in the private sector

This two day certification course follows PRINCE2® Foundations and provides guidance for those seeking to become effective IT project contributors and for those who wish to obtain the PRINCE2® Practitioner certification. While the Foundations course provides theory, the Practitioner course teaches you how to practically apply the PRINCE2® concepts within a project environment.

PRINCE2® (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based, scalable approach for effective IT project management. The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) developed PRINCE2® in the mid ‘80s specifically for IT projects. With a direct relationship to ITIL®, the
framework is public domain and offers non-proprietary guidance on project management.
