Overview/Description
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 AXELOS Limited.
