To make it clear, in DoubleDip two training courses seamlessly follow one another for a total duration of five days. Overall, the objective is to make delegates ready to sit PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner certification exams.

True, there is no shortage of licensed training providers offering this popular PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course.

  A core advantage of ours is the focus on quality. We routinely conduct PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training ONE-ON-ONE. Or at the very least, in a small group. The maximum number of delegates we accept on a scheduled course is only 12.

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 Foundation and Practitioner certifications.

However, depending on your ability to learn, the opportunity to gain time may have a downside.

Point often overlooked, programme compression can cause overload.  Make no mistake, the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course is like drinking from the hose. It makes you follow a gruelling training schedule.  And 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 skills priced in the real life, which can grow your market value.

Blackjack! The course starts with explaining your benefit from learning the Seven Principles, Seven Themes and Seven Processes of PRINCE2.

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 doesn’t, it makes no sense to throw good money after the bad.

What´s Your Benefit From Organisation.  The Organisation theme defines and sets up the project’s structure of authority, accountability and responsibilities. That´s the project´s lifeblood.

Why Is Quality King.  The core objective of a project is to create products that are fit for the purpose. The Quality theme defines and implements the means by which the project will achieve it.

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.

Risk Means Trouble – Or Opportunity.  The Risk theme aims to improve the ability of the project to succeed. It identifies, assesses and controls uncertainty inherent in both threats and opportunities.


No-Nonsense Guide to Change.  The Change theme explains how to deal with desired and approved 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.

Themes are like ingredients. Various steps leading to the creation of the project product require a different mix of them. Such steps are called Processes.

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, better 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 the 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 risks and issues. Other useful techniques will show you how to ensure that a stage remains within tolerance. There is a whole toolkit of corrective actions you can apply.

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 MODULE then gets rolling with the study of the remaining PRINCE2 processes.

The Sole Purpose Of A Project Is To Produce The Agreed 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.

The Managing Product Delivery process monitors and controls execution of work packages that result in the creation of the project product.

Managing a Stage Boundary Is Supposed To Be There For Your Benefit, That Much Is Clear. But how can you actually cash it in?

The Managing a Stage Boundary process permits to commit resources in stages. At the end of each management 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.

(And if you insist on having even more fun, here is our unique learning aid: PRINCE2 Fiction)

Every Project, Good Or Bad, Eventually Comes To The End. Correct project closing procedure can enhance its success – or mitigate failure. The Closing a project process involves taking a specific sequence of actions.

In the first place, these permit to confirm acceptance of the project product. Which is the 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 two sample Foundation exams. After all, there must be a reason for spending two-three hours in class to review each of these, despite evident time pressure.

And the answer is, that’s  the first steps in learning the skill of eliminative induction that can greatly grow your odds of sailing through the exams on the first try.

Not it’s time for the PRACTITIONER MODULE.

After The Next Two Days Are Over, You’ll Never Want To Manage Projects In The Old Way Again.

DAYS 4 and 5

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.

Your early-morning benefit comes from getting to know a range of exam tips and techniques. These have a specific purpose of helping delegates negotiate the Practitioner exam with confidence.

  • Two-pass technique.
  • Time-based technique.
  • Words as giveaways. Qualifiers, true statements, words that suggest uncertainty.
  • How to use the PRINCE2 guidance efficiently in conditions of acute time deficit.

During the two days of Practitioner training, delegates then sit two sample exams with a realistic simulation of stress and fatigue. Each of the sample exams takes  2 1/2 hours to complete. It is followed by a three-hour review.

By the end of the course, delegates  acquire a fair grasp of how to use eliminative induction to improve their exam score.

In every course, deligates tell us that learning this technique was the key benefit, giving them added confidence for the actual exam.
