Get ready for the future of project management with PRINCE2®6 reviews Share Print
Flawless project management
When participating in PRINCE2® Foundation, you will gain an insight into and work with the PRINCE2® method. With the PRINCE2® method, you will increase the success rate of your projects because you will be applying a method that eliminates the risk of errors and failed projects.
PRINCE2® gives you the tools to achieve more effective project management where the aim is increased business benefits. Furthermore, you will gain productive project management collaboration, both internally and externally in your organisation.
You can choose to participate in the course physically or virtually depending on which course date you select. Read more about the two options and the differences here.
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.
The course is for individuals wishing to gain an insight into the method. PRINCE2® is not a method that project managers can choose to use 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 Tips and advice for the exam
- Topics and principles of the PRINCE2® method
- Risk management
- Version management
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.

Preparation prior to course start:
You should plan to spend 40—50 hours of preparation reading and solving assignments.
You will receive the pre-course material 3—4 weeks prior to course start.
It is important that you prepare before the course starts in order to get the most out of it.
The individual assignments, which you complete in the evenings between course days, are an important part of preparing to pass the exam.
The course runs over 3 consecutive days, and includes both preparation before the start of the course and evening work during the course itself.
During the course days, we will review the PRINCE2® theory, and you will practice answering exam questions individually and in groups. We will be using various exciting forms of instruction at the course to ensure variation and optimal learning.
Mannaz is an accredited PRINCE2® training organisation (ATO) approved by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS who administers PRINCE2®. All course materials are accredited by PeopleCert as well. The course and the exam will be conducted in English.
The content of the virtual course corresponds to the content of the physical course. It is merely the format and the practical implementation that differs.
The virtual course consists of 3 virtual course days and 2 hours of virtual exam preparation. All sessions are held in Zoom or MS Teams.
At Mannaz, we have extensive experience with virtual learning, and the course is designed to ensure that you get the maximum benefit. We can therefore guarantee that you receive the same benefit as on a physical course.

Do you need tools?
Combine PRINCE2® Foundation with project management
With PRINCE2® you get the best-practice management method, which teaches you when to do what in your project – but not how to! In other words, PRINCE2® does NOT provide you with tools. It therefore makes good sense to combine PRINCE2® with Project Management 1 or IT Project Management 1. This will give you the tools as well, so that you know how to act to achieve greater success in your PRINCE2® projects.
*Price for two courses. The courses are booked together and conducted within six months. If you deregister from one of the courses, you will be invoiced for the full price of the course that you participated in.
