PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Preparation

Get to know how PRINCE2® is used in practice.

Would you like your project leaders to know a best practice method for their projects and apply it in practice? Or would you like a recognized certification of your knowledge and your abilities as project leader or project manager? For you, it is necessary to pass the examination within a short period of time at the first attempt? PRINCE2® is a very successful method of project management, which is gaining more and more supporters worldwide and is used in a variety of projects. PRINCE2® is consistently results- and benefit-oriented and offers specific guidance for each project phase. Each delegating level obtains the individually relevant information so that projects can be executed holistically and successfully.

Seminar Objectives

With PRINCE2®, you will learn a best practice project management method. This approach creates a controlled environment which enables the management to draw up projects consciously and delegate responsibilities and authorities clearly. The qualification consists of two steps – the foundation training and the practitioner training. The participants will complete both steps by absolving an examination. This foundation course creates an understanding of the PRINCE2® method and prepares the project manager for the PRINCE2® Foundation Examination perfectly. In the PRINCE2®Practitioner seminar will be refreshed and deepened using current case studies. Practical scenarios will help you to prepare for applying PRINCE2® in your own projects and control the management phases effectively.

Your Benefit

Using their intensive practical expertise, our trainers will help you to transfer the knowledge from the seminar directly to your everyday work. The communication of the necessary theory alternates with many practical exercises. You will deepen your PRINCE2® knowledge in many practice-oriented workshops and prepare yourself optimally for the certification. Between the seminar and the examination, you will have approximately 2-3 weeks to deepen the last themes individually and to practice.
