PRINCE2® Classroom Trainings

Course Description

PRINCE2® is a process-based, step-by-step approach to project management.

A strong aspect of PRINCE2 is the fact that it separates the management aspects for project work from the specialist requirements. This results in the ability to integrate any form of specialist aspect into the PRINCE2 framework.

PRINCE2 is a generic method based on proven principles. Organizations adopting the method can substantially improve their organizational capability and maturity across areas such as business change, construction, and IT.

The PRINCE2 Foundation classroom training from Management Plaza aims to provide the knowledge to prepare the candidate for the PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate examination in a different approach.

Management Plaza is different in many ways to other PRINCE2 training companies:

  • We focus on making PRINCE2 easy to learn and remember
  • Our Introduction to PRINCE2 book is now the most read book on PRINCE2. It is also available in CBT (video) and Audio formats
  • We are the only training company that provides a PRINCE2 Foundation Training Manual, it is much easier than reading the official PRINCE2 manual which is a good reference manual but a poor training manual.
  • We provide an online training room to support classroom training
