Course Overview
Hi everyone, and welcome to this course, PRINCE2 -- The Plans Theme, where we will take a deep dive into the PRINCE2 planning approach. My name is Tommy van Schaik and I'm currently employed as a project manager for the Dutch government. This course is the fifth course in the PRINCE2 Practitioner learning path. PRINCE2 is a project management method based on gathering years of best practice on project management from commercial and government organizations around the world. This course is about the PRINCE2 planning approach, which is a product-based, step-by-step approach to project planning that has proven to increase the control in your project and improve internal communication. In this course we will focus on the PRINCE2 planning approach, the different levels of planning, and the product and activity-based planning techniques. By the end of this course, not only will you have detailed knowledge about the PRINCE2 planning approach, but you will also be able to apply this product-based technique to your own projects, increasing the control of your project and improving the communication. So let's go ahead and get started with the PRINCE2 planning approach in this course, PRINCE2 -- The Plans Theme, here at Pluralsight.
