Course Objectives

Projects bring together resources, skills, technology and ideas to deliver business benefits or to achieve business objectives. Good project management helps to ensure that these benefits and objectives are delivered to an appropriate level of quality and within the constraints of time and cost. It is also an essential element in managing the risks inherent in change and innovation.

PRINCE2® is a comprehensive, structured project management method used extensively by the UK government. It is also widely recognised and used by the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The method can be applied to all kinds of projects, including IT systems projects.

This intensive course covers the main elements of the PRINCE2® method, including components, processes and techniques. It also places PRINCE2® in an organisational context and discusses the issues surrounding the implementation of PRINCE2®.

After successfully completing this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the background, scope and objectives of PRINCE2®.
  • Describe the principles of the PRINCE2® components, processes and techniques.
  • Discuss the applicability and potential costs/benefits of introducing PRINCE2®.
