PRINCE2®

Foundation to Practitioner

PRINCE2 Overview

PRINCE2, firmly established as the world’s most-practised method for project management, is globally recognised for delivering successful projects.

The real success of PRINCE2 lies in its compilation of proven best practices in project management taken from academics, business professionals, and consultants across the years. Since its creation, at least two million PRINCE2 exams have been sat in over 150 countries worldwide. This is a clear testament to the value of PRINCE2 to individuals all over the world.

PRINCE2 is practical and accessible and plays a vital role in ensuring that projects of any kind will lead to beneficial outcomes.

These courses provide participants with a solid understanding of the PRINCE2 (6th Edition) method covering the principles, themes and processes.
