What is PRINCE2
A de facto standard used extensively by the UK Government and widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The key features of PRINCE2 are:
- Its focus on business justification
- A defined organisation structure for the project management team
- Its product – based planning approach
- Its emphasis on dividing the project into manageable and controllable stages
Who Should Attend?
General Managers, Project & Programme Managers, Project Management Staff, Team Leaders, Business Consultants and finally all those professionals who wish to gain an understanding and knowledge of the PRINCE2TM method and gain formal recognition by taking the PRINCE2TM Practitioner exam.
PRINCE2’s formal recognition of responsibilities within a project, along with its focus on what a project is to deliver (the why, when and for whom), provides your organisation’s projects with:
- a common and consistent approach,
- a controlled and organised start, middle and end,
- regular reviews of progress against plan,
- assurance that the project continues to have a business justification,
- flexible decision points,
- management control of any deviations from the plan,
- the involvement of management and stakeholders at the right time and place during the project,
- good communication channels between the project, project management and the organisation,
- a means of capturing and sharing lessons learned,
- a route to increasing the project management skills and competences of the organisation’s staff at all levels.
