PRINCE2® Foundation Course

PRINCE2 is widely considered as the leading method in project management, with in excess of 20,000 organizations already benefiting from its pioneering and trusted approach. This is largely due to the fact that PRINCE2 is truly generic: it can be applied to any project regardless of scale, type, organization, geography or culture.
PRINCE2 comprises a set of principles, a set of control themes, a process lifecycle and guidance on matching the method to the project's environment.
PRINCE2 provides a process model for managing a project. This consists of a set of activities that are required to direct, manage and deliver a project.
