PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects INControlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Used extensively in UK, PRINCE2® is also widely recognized and used in the private sector also. The PRINCE2® method offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.
Key features of PRINCE2®:
Focus on business justification
Defined organization structure for the project management team
Product-based planning approach
Emphasis on dividing the project into manageable and controllable stages
Flexibility that can be applied at a level appropriate to the project.
On this course you will learn about the PRINCE2® approach to projects – its principles, themes, processes, and techniques – and how to apply PRINCE2® to simple projects. You will also be well prepared to pass both the Foundation and Practitioner exams during the course.
The PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner qualification is ideal if you are taking on more project work or are moving into a project management role. If you work as part of a project team and are just looking to learn an overview of PRINCE2®, then the standalone Foundation course should be more suited to you.
The PRINCE2® Foundation qualification will teach you the PRINCE2® principles, terminology and when qualified you will be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2® methodology within a project environment supporting PRINCE2®. PRINCE2® Foundation can be studied on its own or as a prerequisite for the PRINCE2® Practitioner course.
The PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification will teach you to apply PRINCE2® to the running and managing of a project within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. Once qualified you will be able to apply and tune PRINCE2® to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario. You will have a comprehensive knowledge of the relationships between the PRINCE2® principles, themes and processes and PRINCE2® products and will understand these elements

PRINCE2® Is The International Standard Method for Project Management. It is recognized as a world-class international product, and is the standard method for project management, not least because it embodies many years of best practice in project management and provides a flexible and adaptable approach to suit all projects. It is a project management method designed to provide a framework covering the wide variety of disciplines and activities required within a project.
PRINCE2® provides a common vocabulary for all those involved in a project, which helps effective communication. The method also provides for the explicit recognition of project responsibilities so that participants understand each other's roles and needs. There is a defined structure for accountability, delegation, authority and communication.
The development of PRINCE2® was driven by the feedback from end-users, project management specialists and thus has resulted in a generic best practice method which is flexible enough to be tailored to the specific needs of different organizations for all kind of projects
