Project management – in theory and in practice
This course will provide you with a complete insight into and knowledge of the PRINCE2® method. You will complete an intensive programme that prepares you to take the Foundation and Practitioner exams.
With the PRINCE2® method, you will eliminate the risk of errors and failed projects and thereby increase the success rate of your projects.
Gain an insight into the PRINCE2® method and find out how a common language for project management promotes success.
The PRINCE2® Foundation & Practioner course provides you with best practice methods within project management as well as how to apply these methods to your projects.
Who takes part?
Project managers in private and public organisations. Some project experience is required as the course focuses on process-oriented project management according to the PRINCE2® method — not on specific tools for project management.
PRINCE2® is not a method that individual project managers choose to apply themselves. It is a general method, which the organisation can choose to follow in order to optimise project management. Hence, you may be involved in projects that are being conducted according to the PRINCE2® method, or you may collaborate with clients or suppliers who use the method.
On the course you will work on:
- Processes and sub-processes within the PRINCE2® method
- Planning, management and stages
- Quality project environment
- Change management
- Topics and principles of the PRINCE2® method
- Risk management
- Version management
- Tips and advice for the exam
PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner is the most professional programme I have ever experienced.
The PRINCE2® method
PRINCE2® is a best-practice project management method, which ensures that the project organisation is in place from project start and that management roles and responsibilities have been agreed upon and made visible. The method consists of a process model that serves to guide the project management through all the processes required to ensure that the project delivers the result, which will generate the expected benefits from a business point of view. The cornerstone of the method is hence the business benefit.

After PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner I am looking forward to practicing the PRINCE2® discipline in my projects. Even though I had some knowledge of the PRINCE2® concepts, I learned a lot, but I would particularly emphasise the end product concept, change management and approval criteria. I highly recommend this course to others.
