Project Management

Introduction to Prince 2™

Course Overview

Many non-professional Project Managers now find themselves working within a Prince 2™ framework. You could be directing a project, working on one or having to comply with a customer's Prince 2™ requirements. People like you not merely need to understand the methodology; because it can so often be highly exacting and indeed overwhelming, you need to learn how to become its master rather than its slave.

This is the aim of this course. Our Prince 2™ project management training not only gives you a simplified overview of the methodology, unencumbered by it's technical nuts and bolts, it also focuses on how you can use it to fulfil your aims rather than being at the mercy of its demands.

While this course primarily aims to provide project management training for the non-specialist, it also provides an excellent introduction for those wanting to enter the profession.
