PRINCE2® 6th Edition

Overview

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) 6th Edition is a process-based approach for project management, providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects. PRINCE2 is a flexible method that guides you through the essentials for running a successful project regardless of project type or scale.

PRINCE2 is a non-proprietary method and has emerged worldwide as one of the most widely accepted methods for managing projects. This is largely due to the fact that PRINCE2 is truly generic – it can be tailored to meet your organisation or industry specific requirements regardless of project scale, type, organisation, geography or culture.

PRINCE2 achieves this by isolating the management aspects of project work from the specialist contributions, such as design, construction etc. The specialist aspects of any type of project are easily integrated with the PRINCE2 method and used alongside PRINCE2, provide a secure overall framework for the project work.

Because PRINCE2 is generic and based on proven principles, organisations adopting the method as a standard can substantially improve their organisational capability and maturity across multiple areas of business activity.

PRINCE2 Foundation is a 3-day course and includes course notes, course manual and sample exams. 

PRINCE2 Practitioner is a 2-day course and includes course notes and sample exams. The course builds on the Foundations course to further enhance the skills learned and develop practical application understanding.

LATSA Instructors are experienced PRINCE2 practitioners, consultants, and system implementers.
