PRINCE2® Foundation Course

Improve project results with Prince2 project management

Better control over your projects? Learn how to guarantee the quality of projects and how to adjust them more quickly? Prince2 is a widely used method for organising, managing and controlling projects. Unlike other project management methods, Prince2 focuses on the processes. By paying a lot of attention to defining the desired end result during the preparation, the expectations of all those involved are better managed. And because of the fixed structure and composition, everyone speaks the same language, which makes communication considerably easier. This makes Prince2 one of the most concrete, quickly applicable project management methods.

This course trains you up to the exam according to the latest version of Prince2 2017.
