PRINCE2 Foundation is a project management methodology. It was developed by the UK government agency Office of Government Commerce(OGC) and is used extensively within the UK government as the de facto project management standard for its public projects. The methodology encompasses the management, control and organization of a project. PRINCE2 is also used to refer to the training and accreditation of authorized practitioners of the methodology who must undertake accredited qualifications to obtain certification.
The Prince2 Foundation course is aimed at individuals who need to be informed members of a project management team within an environment using PRINCE2 methodology. It is targeted towards explanation of various terminology, the purpose and benefits of the documents produced and how these can be applied to everyday project work.
This qualification is aimed at Project Managers and aspiring Project Managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
Delegates should have some understanding of Project Management but there is no formal pre-requisite for the Foundation qualification.
