PRINCE2® has established itself as the premier approach to managing projects. PRINCE2® is generic – capable of being applied to any kind of project – scalable and business-driven. Organisations that have adopted the PRINCE2® have claimed that they have been able to achieve greater customer satisfaction during and at the end of projects, to reduce costs and to realise greater benefit from project deliverables.
The Registered PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification is now established as an external competence measure by organisations in the UK, the Netherlands, Australia and elsewhere.
PRINCE2® is a Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce.
The aim of this course is to prepare people who have already passed their PRINCE2® Foundation exam to move to the ‘next level’ – the PRINCE2® Practitioner examination. The course follows the standard syllabus issued by the PRINCE2® Examinations Board, which focuses on the PRINCE2® framework and how this can be applied pragmatically to real projects.
