The PRINCE2® Practitioner exam is aiming to measure whether a candidate would be able to apply PRINCE2® to the running and managing of a project within an environment supporting PRINCE2®.
To this end they need to exhibit the competence required for the PRINCE2® Foundation qualification, and show that they can apply and tune PRINCE2® to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario.
In the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam candidates must be able to...
- Produce detailed explanations of all processes, components and techniques, and worked examples of all PRINCE2® products as they might be applied to address the particular circumstances of a given project scenario.
- Show they understand the relationships between processes, components, techniques and PRINCE2® products and can apply this understanding.
- Demonstrate that they understand the reasons behind the processes, components and techniques of PRINCE2®, and that they understand the principles underpinning these elements.
- Demonstrate their ability to tune PRINCE2® to different project circumstances.
- Benefits of using PRINCE2Â®
- Why projects fail
- Project Lifecycle
PRINCE2Â® Process Model
Overview of the 7 PRINCE2Â® processes and how they are used throughout the lifecycle of the project:
- Starting Up a Project- define the project; create business case; identify customer's quality expectations
- Directing a Project- authorize the project and stage plans; decide how to deal with issues
- Initiating a Project- identify the products that will be produced; plan the project; set up controls and files
- Controlling a Stage- activities performed by the project manager on a day to day basis to manage a stage
- Managing Product Delivery- products are developed and quality is reviewed
- Managing Stage Boundaries- create all stage and exception plans
- Closing a Project- formal customer sign off; capture outstanding issues for future reference
Each of the 7 PRINCE2Â® themes of a project and how they are used by the PRINCE2Â® processes:
- Business Case- A PRINCE2 Business Case drives all decision-making in the project.
- Organization- The Organization theme defines and establishes project roles and responsibilities for a PRINCE2 project.
- Quality- In PRINCE2, quality focuses on ensuring that the project's products are fit for purpose.
- Plans- Plans are the vehicle used to define how, where and by whom the project's products will be delivered.
- Risk- PRINCE2 looks at risks relative to the project's objectives.
- Change- The Change theme in PRINCE2 encompasses configuration management, issue management and change control.
- Progress- Progress refers to the mechanisms used to monitor and compare the actual project progress and performance against the planned values.
