PRINCE2® Foundation

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.

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.

You can also save money by purchasing PRINCE2® Foundation and Project Management 1 in a combined course package.

The PRINCE2® method

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a project management method that can be used in all types of projects, environments, and industries. The method is based on best practice. PRINCE2® focuses on the management of a project itself, rather than the development of a project’s products. It contains a complete set of concepts and project management processes that are the minimum requirements for the correct implementation and management of a project.

Participant Profile

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.

Why take this course?

When you participate in this course, you will not only gain personal skills, but also skills that your company or organisation can greatly benefit from.

Your personal benefits

  • Knowledge of and training in the PRINCE2® method

  • Insight into best practice

  • Documentation of competencies with the PRINCE2® Foundation exam
