PRINCE2 was first launched in 1996 and has had six editions (before current release), PRINCE2 7th Edition seeks to respond to a number of changes that have taken place in the world and in the discipline of project management. These include the integration of people, sustainability , digital and data management.

The essence of what a project is remains the same - it is temporary, it is product-focused, and there should always be an ongoing business justification. PRINCE2 is a truly relevant and international project management standard.

This course includes the official textbook and online proctored exam voucher.
