Every good system is based on a framework or architecture that governs its progression - from start-up through pulling together all the sub-systems that work together to achieve a desired result. The PRINCE2 project management system is no exception. Its framework consists of seven distinctive processes that define the management activities of a project's life cycle. They encompass all activities related to starting up, directing, initiating, controlling, managing a stage boundary and closing a project. The seven processes provide a consistent set of guidelines that represent the minimum requirements for a properly managed project. They may be applied to various types of projects and are completely scalable to projects of any size. PRINCE2 is recognized as an international standard for process-based project management. It is the standard method for project management in the UK. This course is designed to assist learners in preparation for the PRINCE2 Foundation certification exam objectives under the Processes area, and explores three of the seven processes, namely Starting up a Project, Directing a Project and Initiating a Project. PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries.

By definition, not all projects are the same. One of the defining characteristics of a project is that it is unique. Each project has a different team, a different customer, and a different location. And typically each product is unique in some way as well. Projects differ in terms of scale, complexity and culture. They can be a stand-alone entity or part of a programme of related projects. The key point is that there is a multitude of factors that affect how your project should be managed. As a result, there is no such thing as 'one size fits all' project management. The good news is that PRINCE2 can be tailored to suit any project environment you might work in. PRINCE2 is a flexible framework that can be tailored to any type or size of project. PRINCE2 is recognized as an international standard for process-based project management. It is the standard method for project management in the UK. This course is designed to assist learners in preparation for the PRINCE2 Foundation certification exam objectives. In particular this course focuses on the general approach to tailoring a project and what's involved in tailoring; it also focuses on how to tailor PRINCE2 to suit different project environments including projects in a programme, simple projects, commercial customer/supplier environment type projects as well as multiorganizational projects. PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark ofthe Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries.
