IMHO the 2017 exams are much tougher than the 2009 although they are described as simplified. Most of the questions are now "this is happening and a) its good process/principle/theme BECAUSE of some rationale, b) its good because of some other rationale, c) its bad because of a rationale, d) its bad because of a rationale".
This bundle gives you vouchers for the Foundation and Practitioner exams and fully explains the 2017 version of PRINCE2 to exam standard.
The course is still in development (Slides, Workbook case study etc are done - Videos not done).
Why this course?
Here's my main thought
- When teaching in a classroom the end point is fixed in the expiry of room-hires and flight departure times.
- Every one arrives on an exam based course with a huge focus on "I must pass" - People start a weeks exam-cram with the idea that "...and I want something I can apply at the end" but that is mostly gone by Tuesday and by Thursday its completely forgotten
- P2 is a BIG topic and that fixed 'in-a-week' to exam level conflicts with presentation of the tool-set beyond exam needs or debate about nuanced application or addition of the wealth of good stuff that is outside P" scope but inside what we need for good PM
- SO with the freedom to remove the time-limits I've added (carefully with clear segregation) the 'what you need to add to p2 to have a full toolkit'
To summarize - Why this course? - Because its a course in how to be a PM with a P2 certificate and that is not what most (any other?) p2 courses provide.
- A large chunk is try before you buy so you can verify that the materials are a match to your preferred learning style. Training is a personal connection as much as subject matter content.. My approach is to be detailed and exhaustive so that reading the official manual is unnecessary. Some people love it and some don't. Maybe you want a shallow touch and then you'll read the manual?
- My approach is to create detailed cross-references of the manuals contents. Some people say they are overwhelming and prefer to create their own. What is true is that P2 is full of a lot of very detailed cross-references so it surely is a choice of how you invest your time - studying mine or creating your own.
- My approach is to show you in detail how to dissect exam questions (I was one of Colin Bentley's prince2 examiners - in essay days) because passing exams IS about understanding the stylised re positioning of the manual's contents and not about the pragmatism of fluent p2 use in the day-job where politics and mistakes and emotions and the variations in peoples skills and the addition of influences from all the other standards and rules are also combined into your practices.
At the end of the day a 'money back' guarantee does not get you your TIME back - people offer the guarentee as they know inertia means most don't ask. I try to reduce your purchase risk by giving you enough access to make a decision that you then commit to. To pass the exam requires both your and my commitment. Its easier to 'stay the course' if when you commit you really do commit.
