Project management is a controlled approach to planning and realization of a project from its beginning to end. There is no magic formula that could guarantee success for each project, but there exist proven, efficient techniques that increase chances of success. The most popular methodology of project management is PRINCE2. But projects that are formally managed according to PRINCE2, are often chaotic and use the "put out fire" method. In such projects, PRINCE2 documentation is created just to satisfy formal requirements. Participants of this training learn basics of PRINCE2 methodology and how to use it efficiently, without extensive bureaucracy, in IT projects.

The training is for:

  • future project managers and beginners in project management,
  • project managers that wish to systematize their project management knowledge,
  • team leaders,
  • team members.

By the end of the training participants will have learned:

  • what is a project, its lifecycle and role in an organisation,
  • basic concepts of PRINCE2 methodology,
  • how to effectively use PRINCE2 concepts in practice to manage IT projects.
