Course content: PRINCE2® Foundation
PRINCE2 (Projects in a Controlled Environment) is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects – and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, Project Managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants. PRINCE2 is a non-proprietary method and has emerged worldwide as one of the most widely accepted methods for managing projects. This is largely due to the fact that PRINCE2 is truly generic: it can be applied to any project regardless of project scale, type, organization, geography or culture.
1 video – 7 min.
One aim of PRINCE2 is to make the right information available at the right time for the right people to make the right decisions about the project. Those decisions include whether to take corrective action or implement measures to improve performance.
1 video – 10 min.
The principles are the guiding obligations and good practices which determine whether the project is genuinely being managed using PRINCE2. There are seven principles and unless all of them are applied, it is not a PRINCE2 project. The PRINCE2 principles are described in Chapter 3. PRINCE2 is a flexible framework and one of the principles is that it can readily be tailored to any type or size of project. Chapter 4 describes, how PRINCE2 is adapted to make it suitable for the project.
1 video – 5 min.
The PRINCE2 method is designed to be adapted. The adaption does not consist of omitting parts of PRINCE2 as this will weaken the project management for the entire project.
Tailoring relates to the proper use of PRINCE2 on any given project to ensure the right amount of governance, planning and control in accordance with the principles of PRINCE2.
Adopting PRINCE2 involves two processes:
- Tailoring PRINCE2 to develop the organization’s own method
- Embedding the new method into the organization, so that people understand and use it appropriatly
These activities will be introduced in the following sections.
3 videos – 12 min.
The themes describe aspects of project management that must be addressed continually and in parallel throughout the project. The seven themes explain the specific treatment required by PRINCE2 for various project management disciplines and why they are necessary.
29 videos – 135 min.
The seven processes describe the entire progress – from starting up a project, when the project goes through the different phases in the project lifecycle to the final closing of a project. Each process includes checklists of recommended activities, products and associated responsibilities.
23 videos – 106 min.
This chapter provides a more detailed guide to the organizations, who want to implement PRINCE2 and, in particular, what is important to consider when:
- Adaptation of PRINCE2 to create the organization method
