Overview/Description
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 of AXELOS Limited.
