Course Overview
Hi everyone, and welcome to this course, PRINCE2 - the Project Processes, where we will zoom in on the PRINCE2 Process model. My name is Tommy van Schaik, and I currently work as a project manager for the Dutch government. PRINCE2 is a project management method based on the best project management practices gathered by the UK Government of Commerce. This course is the 9th course in the PRINCE2 practitioner learning path. This learning path is a 10-course journey that will get you ready to pass your PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams. PRINCE2 has 7 processes that are designed to direct, manage, and deliver a project successfully. This course will focus on the controlling processes, the management processes, and the delivery processes of a project. By the end of this course, you will have detailed knowledge on the PRINCE2 processes, and what actions, artifacts, responsibilities, and triggers are important in the PRINCE2 process model, as well as the rationale behind having a process model within your project management method. So, let's go ahead and get started on this course, PRINCE2 - the Project Processes here at Pluralsight.

Starting up a Project Process
Hi there, and welcome back. In this module, we will focus on starting up a project process, which is the first process in a PRINCE2 project, where some of the fundamental decisions regarding your project will be made. So let's dive into the Starting Up a Project Process.

Directing a Project Process
Hi everybody, and welcome back to this course on the PRINCE2 project processes. This module we will focus on the second process in the PRINCE2 method, which is the directing a project process. The directing a project process is the largest process in the PRINCE2 method and holds all the actions required from the project board to give proper direction to the project. The actions people describe in this module will focus mostly on the bigger decisions that have to be made in the project. Think of things like giving permission to initiate the project, or requesting an exception plan when the project runs out of its tolerances. The directing a project process covers all the decision making moments that the project board has throughout the project. That is why the directing a project process stretches right from the beginning of the project to the end of the project when the project closes. So let's zoom in on a directing a project process.
