PRINCE2 is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2 method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The Foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

By passing the Foundation exam, candidates should understand the structure and key terminology of the method. Specifically, the candidate should understand:

  • The characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2
  • The purpose of the PRINCE2 roles, management products and themes
  • The PRINCE2 principles
  • The purpose, objectives and context of the PRINCE2 processes.
