PRINCE2® 2017 is the method used for planning and managing projects in the public and private sectors. The method is used for a wide variety and size of projects. PRINCE2® is universally accepted as best practice project management.
PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method that can be applied regardless of project scale, type, organisation, geography or culture. It is an integrated framework of processes and themes which address the planning, delegation, monitoring and control of the six variables (aspects of project performance) involved in any project, those of: ‘Costs’, ‘Timescales’, ‘Quality’, ‘Scope’, ‘Risk’ and ‘Benefits’.
This two-day course covers the PRINCE2 Practitioner syllabus, including the following topics:
Structured Approach to Managing Projects - Setting the scene for a structured approach to managing all projects; project success criteria; the model of the PRINCE2 method including the integrated elements of principles, processes, themes and tailoring.
The Process-based Approach - PRINCE2 focuses on key processes needed for successful project management which must be present, but may be ‘tailored’ to reflect the complexity, scope and risks faced by the project. SPOCE’s PRINCE2 Process Model will be used to help delegates understand and appreciate what should be done to manage each project, why it should be done and when in the project lifecycle.
Business Case - What is a Business Case; Outcomes, Outputs, Benefits and Dis-benefits; Developing, Verifying and Maintaining the Business Case; Confirming the benefits and the Benefits Review Plan.
Organisation - Project Management Team Structure and the Project Board, Project Assurance, Project Manager, Team Manager, Change Authority and Project Support roles & responsibilities. Stakeholder management; Communication Management Strategy.

Progress - Management and Technical Stages. Tolerance and Raising Exceptions. Project Board and Project Manager Controls for Reviewing and Reporting Progress; Baselines for Control; Capturing and Reporting Lessons; Event-driven and time-driven controls.

Practical Work - A specially written scenario runs throughout the course from start to finish. A comprehensive set of tasks help provide a practical application of the method.

There are also sample exam questions for delegates to practice on before sitting the Foundation exam.
