Cíle předmětu
The main objective of this course is to provide students with an understanding of a structured approach to managing projects in an international environment. This includes creating an understanding of the need for project management and how the PRINCE2 method meets this need. Upon completion of the course, students will be familiar with the characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2. They will understand the purpose of the PRINCE2 roles, management products, themes, and principles, and they will be aware of what decisions the project manager is expected to make. Lastly, they will be fully versed in the purpose, objectives and context of the PRINCE2 processes and be well prepared to take the PRINCE2 Foundation Certification Examination should they choose to do so.
