PRINCE2® 6th Edition Foundation


  • PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environment) is a structured and formal method of efficient project management.
  • PRINCE2® is an international standard, used as a preferred project management approach with organisations around the world.
  • PRINCE2® can be applied to all kinds of projects and situations.
  • It gives a written description of how to manage a project in a logical, organised way, following defined steps.

A successful method for project management

Writing your organisation's own customised set of standards can be a time-consuming and costly business. Then why not using an existing best practice standard and flexing it to your organisation's needs? The use of PRINCE2® is free. Users can employ the method for their own projects without being tied to specific consultants.

The result?

Thousands of people around the world are fully qualified as PRINCE2® practitioners. This creates a virtuous circle: the more people who have taken the PRINCE2® exams, the more benefit there is in organisations adopting it, and the more organisations that adopt it, the more people there will be who become qualified to use it.

You will know the common language, the rules, the responsibilities, the tools, the structured steps, the planning stages, etc, in order to finish your projects on time, within budget and without sleepless nights, …
