GK# 2966

Course Overview


The aim of this training is to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of the PRINCE2® project management method, and help participants to prepare for the PRINCE2® Foundation examination at the end of this course. 

The course follows the standard syllabus issued by AXELOS, which focuses on the PRINCE2® framework and how this might be applied pragmatically to real projects. PRINCE2® has established itself as the premier approach to managing projects. PRINCE2® is generic – capable of being applied to any kind of project – scalable and business-driven. Organizations that have adopted the PRINCE2® have claimed that they have been able to achieve greater customer satisfaction during and at the end of projects, to reduce costs and to realize greater benefit from project deliverables. 

PRINCE2® is a registered trade mark of AXELOS Limited.
