About the course:
PRINCE2® provides best practice guidance that gives individuals and organizations the essentials of running a project. PRINCE2 is easy to learn and a flexible method that can adapt to all types of project.
Because PRINCE2 is generic and based on proven principles, organizations adopting the method can substantially improve their organizational capability and maturity across various areas such as business change, construction, IT, mergers and acquisitions, research and product development.
The best practice is supported by the PRINCE2® certification scheme which provides a two tier Foundation and Practitioner level qualification.
With this bundle, the price also includes the related certification exams (which must be booked separately via the course publisher – details below).
