In DoubleDip, two training courses seamlessly follow one another for a total duration of five days. The end result is making delegates ready to sit for the Practitioner certification exam.
True, there is no shortage of licensed training providers offering this popular PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course.
This is ONE THING that REALLY sets us apart from the rest.
A side benefit is that we train you in a small group counting only 5-12 delegates.
Choosing this combined course over two separate ones brings another benefit. You gain time. After only five days of training, you can aim at obtaining a Practitioner certification.
In business, time is money. When you see a money-making break, waste no time in completing your move.
However, depending on your ability to learn, the opportunity to gain time may have a downside to it. Point often overlooked, programme compression can cause overload. This course is like drinking from the hose. It makes you follow a gruelling training schedule. It must be remembered that a very steep learning curve can expose you to a higher risk at the exam.
We recognize this risk and mitigate it by focusing attention on exam preparation techniques that help delegates learn and apply the PRINCE2 reasoning.
PRINCE2 Practitioner certification brings a serious real-world value.
In fact, knowledge how to apply the PRINCE2 method in practice translates into project management confidence. On the whole it comes from knowing what you are doing and why. Moreover, you obtain marketable skills that convert into professional added value.
These 5 Days of PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Course Will Radically Change the Way You Do Projects
FOUNDATION SEGMENT of PRINCE2 certification course
Why Every Project Must Have A Business Case. The Business Case theme establishes mechanisms that permit to judge whether the project is (and remains) desirable, achievable and viable. If it isn`t, it doesn´t makes sense to throw good money after the bad.
What Difference Can A Plan Make. The Plans theme facilitates communication and control. It defines the means of delivering the products. A plan determines Where, How, by Whom, When the project product will be created and How much it should cost.
No-Nonsense Guide to Change. It can be REALLY hard to understand techniques for monitoring and controlling Change. The Change theme explains how to deal with desired, anticipated or unexpected changes to product specifications and project baselines.
Understand The PURPOSE Of Measuring Progress. And only THEN start looking for project dashboard solutions. The Progress theme explains the method behind assessing if the project stands a chance of staying desirable, achievable and viable.
To Do, Or Not To Do? That´s a seriously BIG decision. The reason is, it has CONSEQUENCES. The Starting up a Project process aims to confirm that the proposed project s a viable and worthwhile one. If that’s not the case, forget it.
We think that you´ll agree with our saying that
A Typical Senior Executive´s Sin Is Micromanagement. The Directing a Project process provides a systemic remedy for the latter. Its purpose is to keep the Project Board where it belongs, at 30,000 feet above project.
The Board makes key decisions and exercises overall control. It also remains accountable for the overall project’s success. At the same time, it delegates day-to-day running of the project to the Project Manager.
You Can Get A HUGE Benefit From A Set Of Systems, Structures And Procedures. These are defined and set up during the Initiating a Project process. As a result, an organisation can better understand the work that needs doing to deliver the project’s products. And that, before committing to a significant spend.
Remember, the objective of this PRINCE2 certification course is twofold. One, make you a budding expert in the PRINCE2 method. Two, prepare you for the exams.
In the real world, BOTH the knowledge and a certificate bring you true value. And quite possibly a career boost.
‘If You’re Afraid – Don’t Do It. If You’re Doing It – Don’t Be Afraid!’ Said One Genghis Khan. Free yourself from the fear of doing your job wrong. That’a your main benefit from mastering the Controlling a Stage process.
You learn how to assign work that needs doing, monitor it, and deal with issues. Other useful techniques will show you how to ensure that a stage remains within tolerance. There is a whole toolkit of corrective actions for that purpose.
The day’s programme ends with an attempt at Sample Foundation exam #1.
Warm-up focusses on the review of Sample Foundation exam #1. This final day of the FOUNDATION SEGMENT of this 2018 PRINCE2 certification course then gets rolling with the study of the remaining PRINCE2 processes.
The Sole Purpose Of A Project Is To Yield The Desired Product. It can be it a new airplane model or technology for highway construction. A piece of software or a high-rise building. Even something as simple as a networking conference or an analytic report, you name it.
Managing Product Delivery process monitors and controls execution of work packages that result in the creation of the project product.
Managing a Stage Boundary process permits to commit resources in stages. At the end of each Stage, the Project Board assesses reports prepared by the Project Manager. The Board considers whether business justification and the level of risk involved vindicate the continued implementation of the project.
Based on its informed decision the work on the project product can then continue. Or stop to avoid throwing good money after the bad.
Having gotten so far, you may start thinking, hey, it seems like the course is pretty boring…
To be honest, it isn’t exactly stand-up comedy.
But it certainly isn´t dull, either. Rest assured that class discussion supplies a fair bit of entertainment.
Our PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Course Isn’t Exactly Stand-up Comedy. But It Certainly Isn’t Dull Either Thanks to Entertainment Supplied by Group Discussions.
Every Project, Good Or Bad, Eventually Comes To An End. Correct project closing procedure can enhance its success – or mitigate failure. Closing a Project process involves taking a specific sequence of actions.
In the first place, these permit to confirm acceptance for the project product. Which is a way of recognising that the project has achieved objectives set out in the Project Initiation Documentation.
Alternatively, this process can establish that the project product is not attainable making project continuation senseless.
The next item on the course programme is attempting Sample Foundation exam #2. The subsequent hot wash-up reviews topics that proved to be hard to grasp.
At this stage you are probably wondering what´s so important about the results of the two Sample Foundation exams. After all, there must be a reason for spending two hours in class to review them, despite evident time pressure.
A result well above the passing point total will give your self-confidence a boost. That can help at the actual exam. What if your score makes you feel a bit wobbly at the knees? No need to worry. There is still time left to fill in the gaps and build your confidence up.
In the early afternoon delegates sit for the Foundation Exam.
Immediately after, the PRACTITIONER SEGMENT of this 2020 actionable requisite training begins.
After The Next Two Days Are Over, You’ll Never Want To Manage Projects In The Old Way Again.
By now, you will be comfortable with PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes. It’s high time you learned how they fit together and apply to project implementation.
The Practitioner exam proves delegates´ ability to form correct conclusions from information spread across various management products.
Our special focus is on teaching candidates how to solve exam questions by applying the PRINCE2 reasoning.
- Two-pass technique.
- Time-based technique.
- Tips for the analysis of documents included into the exam business case.
- Words as giveaways. Qualifiers, true statements, risky words that suggest uncertainty.
- How to use the PRINCE2® Manual efficiently in condition of acute time deficit.
The next item on the day´s programme is an attempt at Sample Practitioner exam #1 followed by a question-by-question review of the right and wrong answer options.
In every course, candidates tell us that this is the best way to learn the PRINCE2 reasoning, which gives them added confidence at the actual exam.
The morning programme centres on attempting Sample Practitioner exam #2. As before, it is followed by a question-by-question review of the right and wrong answer options to polish the skill of PRINCE2 reasoning .
Finally, here comes the Big Moment of this PRINCE2 certification course. In the afternoon delegates seat for Practitioner exam.
The Pass/Fail result for both Foundation and Practitioner exams is communicated to candidates within 15 minutes after scanned answer sheets have been submitted to PeopleCert.
If You Think That’s All There Is To PRINCE2, You Can Start Unthinking It Right Away.
Mid-2017 marked the arrival of an updated PRINCE2 guidance and new Foundation and Practitioner examinations.
Together, these form PRINCE2 6th Edition and represent A MAJOR UPDATE to the method. It aims to reinforce PRINCE 2’s unrivalled reputation for best practice in project management. As ever, the focus is on what makes a successful project.
Time and again we hear that the only constant in the modern world is change. Correct but not quite true.
The essential truths and practices of PRINCE2 are another constant.
They remain now as relevant as ever. PRINCE2’s strength derives from decades of best practice in project management collected across diverse organisations and industries.
PRINCE2 6th Edition responds to the evolution in business practice over the past decade through a thorough, but not radical update. It reflects a wealth of expert feedback from PRINCE2 practitioners from the widest possible range of sectors and cultures. These are precisely the people who are successfully applying the method in today’s dynamic project environment.
New technologies constantly change the game. Customers and stakeholders continually raise their expectations. There is ever-growing pressure to achieve more with less financial outlay.
PRINCE2 stands up to these challenges.
PRINCE2 has always been rooted in real-life experience. Its 6th Edition consolidates a wealth of knowledge gained in the workplace. You can trust it to provide practical, authoritative and relevant guidance to anyone managing a project in today’s environment.
Hear It Straight From The Horse’s Mouth.
