We didn’t think the globally established and proven project management method that is PRINCE2® could be improved, but AXELOS have proved us wrong.
In this bundle we have included both the accredited PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner online training courses. With this bundle you still start with the very beginning at a foundation level, then once you have passed your PRINCE2® Foundation examination you will be able to proceed to the PRINCE2® Practitioner training, where you will develop your newly founded skills into more advanced concepts.
At its heart PRINCE2® 2017 is very similar to the previous version (PRINCE2® 2009), but some small changes can make a big difference.
- PRINCE2® 2017 has a greater focus on the PRINCE2 principles
- Greater clarity on the link between the themes and principles
- Increased emphasis on tailoring to take account different environments such as complex commercial projects and those using Agile techniques
- Restructuring of the themes guidance to accommodate specific examples of tailoring
- The practical application of the guidance, with numerous examples, hints, and tips
What is PRINCE2®?
PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments 2) is a methodology that prioritises control, organisation, quality, reliability and efficiency.
It was originally derived from the government standard of IT project management methodology known as PROMPT II, and was then developed and used outside of the industry after being redefined for more general project management. The UK Government now adopt PRINCE2® methodology in several departments.
Since then, PRINCE2® has become one of the most popular methodologies in the world, over 1,000,000 people have now taken their exams.
