During this course you’ll learn the PRINCE2 approach to projects. By the end of day 2 you’ll be prepared for the Foundation exam.
The Foundation course covers these topics:
Key PRINCE2 project management terminology is explained and the differences between projects and business as usual are discussed. Students learn about the structure of PRINCE2 and discuss the context in which projects are initiated.
Every project undergoes a series of steps – a beginning, a middle and an end. PRINCE2 provides processes which take place both before and during the project. Students gain an overview understanding of the 7 processes, when they occur and who is responsible.
Business case theme
Every organization requires a business case to justify its investment in a project. Students learn how a business case is created and updated, by whom, and how it is used on the project to take decisions.
The project management team represents the major stakeholders on a project. Each member if the team is responsible for taking decisions. Students learn about the different roles, and each of their responsibilities.
The project must deliver products which will enable outcomes to come about within the sponsoring organization. Students learn how to plan for and manage quality on the project.
At the end of day 1, students will do about 2 hours of homework.
Plans contain a description of what will be delivered, by whom, when and at what cost. Students learn about the different levels of plan, who creates them, and how they are used during a project.
Every project has risk. Risk is a key factor in the decision to undertake a project, or to continue wit it once it has started. Students learn to apply a risk management procedure to identify, estimate, respond to, and report about risks.
It is important to take sensible decisions when considering proposed changes, otherwise a project can be delayed or suffer from cost overruns. Students learn a change control procedure to manage changes effectively.
Projects inevitably never go according to plan. The progress being made must be tracked against what was expected. Students learn about different progress controls and how they are used on a project.
- Starting up a project;
- Directing a project;
- Initiating a project;
- Controlling a stage;
- Managing product delivery;
- Managing a stage boundary;
- Closing a project.
Students learn about the 7 processes, when they are performed, who performs them, and the inputs and outputs of each one. During this discussion, students learn when the themes are applied, who applies them, and how they are applied.
Students sit the PRINCE2 Foundation exam during class at the end of day 2. Exam results are given out immediately.

Susan was extremely helpful
Risk and opportunities should be separate themes.
I would run Foundation over 3 days given the quantity of content.
Susan was extremely helpful and easy to understand (Her diagram explaining the stages was more coherent than the textbook)
Language in some areas was more complicated than it needed to be.

Really good! I found the pre-course material difficult, but Susan was very good at breaking the information down, and applying it to examples, so I now understand it a lot more.
