How can you tell if a project is progressing when measured against the plans you wrote? In this course, PRINCE2® - The Progress Theme, you'll take a deep dive into the tools, techniques, and principles within the PRINCE2® method that enable you to baseline, measure, and report both the progress of the project and the lessons learned. First, you'll learn about the Progress Theme as well as six important types of tolerances. Next, you'll discover the Project Board and how managers control the project through each stage of the process. Finally, you'll explore time-driven and event-driven controls, how to log lessons you've learned for future use, as well as different options for raising exceptions when things are not going according to plan. By the end of this course, your knowledge of the PRINCE2® Progress Theme will be up to practitioner level, and you'll be able to monitor, compare, and control the progress in your own projects using PRINCE2®'s approach to progress.
