Why Should You Learn PRINCE2® Foundation?

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a project management methodology offering a customizable and scalable process for effectively handling diverse range of projects. This method is an established criterion for project management in the UK and is practiced worldwide.

There are two levels of PRINCE2® qualification. The Foundation Level is the first qualification required to become a PRINCE2® Practitioner. This level aims to measure whether a candidate has understood the principles and terminology of PRINCE2 and can act as an informed member of a project management team using PRINCE2® and within an environment supporting PRINCE2®.

PRINCE2® Foundation Certification Course in Nairobi

PRINCE2® Foundation Certification Training in Nairobi, Kenya

In  the  last  decade  of  the  nineteenth  century  the  British  converted  a  swampy  region  in  the east  African  country  of  Kenya  into  a  supply  depot  for  the  Ugandan  Railways.  The  Maasai referred to it as Enkare Nairobi or place of cool waters and the British began to call the place Nairobi. Kenya got its independence from the British in 1963 and Nairobi became its capital. Traditionally the people  living around Nairobi grew cotton and food grains and  centred their economy  on  dairy  and  poultry  farming.  The  British  had  built  rest  houses  and  hotels  to support  their  colonial  indulgences in  big  game  hunting.  Nairobi  naturally  became  Kenya’s travel  and  transport  hub  as  well  as  its  centre  for  the hospitality  industry.  With  growing political stability, Nairobi now is an industrial hub with factories making cement, textiles and processed  foods.  Nairobi  has  many  businesses  in  the  financial  services  and  real  estate sectors and now in the communications  industry. Sensing its growing stature in east Africa, many companies moved their headquarters to Nairobi in 2007, General Electric, Coca-Cola, IBM Services and Cisco Systems to name a few.
