PRINCE2 Foundation Certification

PRINCE2 Foundation

The PRINCE2 Foundation certification is the first of the two PRINCE2. 6th edition qualifications and teaches you the PRINCE2 methods along with the PRINCE2 principles and terminology. Additionally, the certification lets you work as an informed member of a project management team and implement the PRINCE2 methodology within a project environment supporting PRINCE. 

The PRINCE2 Foundation certification will help you to: 

  • Explain the main content and purpose of all roles, the seven principles, the seven themes, as well as the seven processes. 
  • Classify the management products that are input to or output from the seven processes. 
  • Mention the key contents and the principal goal of the primary management products. 
  • Distinguish the connections between deliverables, processes, roles, as well as the management dimensions of a project. 

PRINCE2 stands for Projects In a Controlled Environment and is a project management methodology that was at first created for IT-related projects. The PRINCE2 Foundation Certification in Project Management is a de facto process-based method for effective project management and was later recognized as the same methodology that could be applied over any line of work and career; assuring proper management of project tasks and resources and streamlining and optimizing processes for project success. 

PRINCE2 describes the management of the projects throughout its methodology. It began in 1989 and its methodology has been widely used both in the private and public sectors in the UK and across the world.

PRINCE2 is the acronym for Projects In Controlled Environments. This methodology began and is generally accepted in the UK, but it is a globally recognized certificate preferred above the Project Management Institute's PMP by some industries. It offers one of the best guides to project management. 

Some of the important features of PRINCE2 pay attention to the justification of a business, well-structured organization for team members performing a project, dividing projects into manageable units and flexibility, among others. As it is a methodology, many favor it over other related project management certificates that often are inclined more towards theory. Project managers chose this certification to get detailed processes that are more practical in approach. 

The year 1989 saw the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA )in the UK  adopt a method called PROMPT II as a UK Government standard for information systems (IT) project management. It was named 'PRINCE', an acronym that originally symbolized PROMPT II IN the CCTA Environment. Later on, the acronym PRINCE was assigned to PRojects IN Controlled Environments and was applied outside the IT environment both in the UK and around the world.

Released in 1996 as a generic project management method, PRINCE2 contains several themes and processes that project managers and some industries have preferred above others out of its practicality and methodology. Although it’s more popular in the UK and some countries of the world, it is a widely accepted management system that has been successful for users and project managers. 

The professionals who can attend PRINCE2 Foundation Training online are: 

  1. New or qualified project managers or professionals who manage projects 
  2. Consultants/contract staff operating in a PRINCE2 environment
