Project Management

PRINCE2® is a de facto standard developed and used extensively by the UK government and is widely recognised and used in the private sector, in the UK and internationally.

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.
