PRINCE2 FOUNDATION AND PRACTITIONER
PRINCE2® (Projects in Controlled Environments) is an internationally recognized project management methodology created by combining practical experience with best practices in project management. The method is the de-facto standard for project management in the United Kingdom and is practiced worldwide.
PRINCE2 provides a method for managing projects within a clearly defined framework. PRINCE2 focuses on the definition and delivery of products, in particular their quality requirements.
