Course Overview
Hi everyone, and welcome to this course, PRINCE2 - Tailoring a Project, where we will look at the concept of tailoring a project to fit the characteristics of that project and the project environment. My name is Tommy van Schaik, and currently I work as a project manager for the Dutch government. PRINCE2 is a project management method based on the best project management practices gathered by government and commercial organizations around the world. This course is the last 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. Each project is unique, and in order to get the best possible result, it is important that you tailor the way you apply PRINCE2 to your specific project. In this course, we will focus on the benefits of tailoring the PRINCE2 method, how to get the best balance between control versus overhead, and how exactly to tailor the PRINCE2 concepts for each of the factors that might influence your project. By the end of this course, you will know how to tailor the PRINCE2 management method to fit the environment and characteristics of your project, and your knowledge on the principle of tailoring a project will be up to practitioner level. So let's go ahead and get started on this course, PRINCE2 - Tailoring a Project, here at Pluralsight.
