PRINCE2® Foundation

This course prepares you for the exam leading to the PRINCE2® Foundation Certification. This three-day introductory course is for those seeking to become effective project contributors and for those who wish to obtain the PRINCE2 Foundation certification.

Description

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based, scalable approach for effective project management. PRINCE2's teachings and certifications provide you with knowledge needed to contribute successfully to your organisation's projects. Overall, the guidance will give you and your team common project processes, systems, procedures and language. You benefit from stronger communication channels between the project team, project management and the rest of the organisation, while avoiding errors, saving time and money and, most important, delivering successful project outcomes!

PRINCE2 is widely used across the world and is gaining popularity in Australia as a complement to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) championed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
