Case Study

Village Roadshow Theme Parks is the largest theme park operator in Australia. They secured funding to conduct a three-year Business Transformation Programme, with the aim of streamlining and re-engineering their business processes and developing their own internal business analysis capability without the need for external advisors.

Using Business Analysis techniques, Village Roadshow’s business was transformed. Their internal resources became more capable, reducing the need for consultants.

Finally, requirement changes late in projects were reduced, saving the business money.

PRINCE2 Will Change Your Life

I’m sure the question that’s floating around your mind is “How?”

Well you’ve come to the right place because we’re going to tell you all about it.

PRINCE2 is an acronym for Projects in Controlled Environments. It’s a de facto process-based method for effective project management. This means that the course allows you to run your business with the correct methodology in mind. PRINCE2 has become increasingly more popular and is now a globally recognised certification in both public and private sector organisations. 

Fact of the day:
“PRINCE2 has been around since 1989, that’s nearly 30 years!”

PRINCE2’s Key Features Include:
     1. Business justification focus
     2. An organised and defined structure for the project management team
     3. A planning approach to products
     4. Helps divide your poroject into stages that are manageable and controllable
     5. A level of flexibilty that can applied to your business' project(s)

So what are the benefits of PRINCE2?
By using PRINCE2, it will provide you with the resources and the ability to manage your business as well as projecting risk more effectively.
This will benefit:
     - Anyone searching for leading project management skills to further their career
     - Any current budding project managers within your business
     - Directors or executives of projects and organisations

Having a PRINCE2 certification would be an asset to your career; not only will it increase your likelihood for employment, but it also helps you fulfil your job to the best of your abilities!

Where do you see yourself in years to come?
Being PRINCE2 Certified opens up many doors to a better future. It will enable you to make your way up the management ladder. Getting a project management role can require several years of experience within a technical role appropriate to the project, but being certified would boost your chances of being able to climb that ladder quicker!

You could find yourself managing projects anywhere from the top of an office building to even remote tropical islands out on the ocean.

Qualifications and Training
Imagine PRINCE2 as if it were a cake; with four tiers, each containing a different level of which you can study the course.
PRINCE2 Foundation:
This is the base of the cake, a great place to start is you’re new. The foundation course covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2.
PRINCE 2 Practitioner:
The second tier is suitable for those already managing projects within a PRINCE2 environment and therefore have a little experience in mind.
PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner:
Tier three contains both courses if you wish to take both.
PRINCE2 Re-Registration:
You will need to re-register after 3-5 years of becoming “PRINCE2 Certified”, this is just to keep your memory refreshed. Just think of it as you’re done eating the first and second (maybe even third) tiers of your cake – but the final tier, you can’t quite stomach yet. So you come back to it every now and then to remind you how good it tastes.

The world of PRINCE2 will open up your mind to many possibilities in the future of your career.

“So have your cake and eat it.”

provide a tailor made course for you!

Happy Customers

Brilliant way to learn and get certified! I signed up for Knowledge Academy for a 3-day course on Business Analysis. I already had some years of BA experience, and recently been reading up books on the topic to get industry-wide understanding. This course was to formalize the learning and earn a certificate. What I found most useful was that although there were not too many new things that I learnt about from a theoretical standpoint (since I had already had some experience and been reading up), the case-study approach really helped underpin the learning. Applying the business models/concepts, discussing with others in the group and working through the scenarios really clarified things, and this is something that I found was not all that possible just reading by myself. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who has some inclination towards a BA role. And I am sure The Knowledge Academy would be a great resource for other courses too. Well done TKA.

Just finished my course with TKA in Birmingham and passed with flying colours. The course was challenging at times but then I suppose it is meant to be! The trainer Brian was really good and worked very slow so I could catch up easily. The price was also the cheapest I could find - which originally made me doubt the quality but actually, I can't fault TKA. Will be using them again.
