The PRINCE2® Foundation, 6th edition course focuses on a process-based approach for project management providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects. Since its introduction in 1989 as a government standard for IT project management, PRINCE2® has been taken on by both the public and private sectors and is now recognised as a de facto standard for project management and is practiced worldwide. PRINCE2® is a flexible method and although originally designed for the management of IT projects it is now aimed at all other types of project.
The Foundation course is a 3-day course with 1 hour closed book multiple choice examination on the third day. Participants are eligible to claim 21 PMI® PDUs upon attending this course.
The PRINCE2® Foundation qualification is intended for project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: project board members (e.g. senior responsible owners), team managers (e.g. product delivery managers), project assurance (e.g. business change analysts), project support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel), and operational line managers/staff.
