Course Overview: 

PRINCE2® is a globally practised method for project management, which has over a million certified professionals, spanning 150 countries. Developed by best practice solutions provider AXELOS, it offers a flexible, practical and scalable methodology, to help manage projects of any size or type.

The PRINCE2® (6th edition) methodology is a made up of seven Principles, Themes and Processes.
