How we are different...

the Benchmark promise...

 

Free, unbiased seminars…

We won't try to sell you training that you don't need.

PRINCE2® and MSP® are robust, highly flexible methods that can be used in any business environment to deliver successful projects and programmes. PRINCE2 Agile® is a welcome addition to the AXELOS Global Best Practice portfolio that enables organizations to be even more responsive to rapidly changing requirements. But it's not enough simply to train staff and expect them to apply the methods in their own business enevironment.

The introduction of PRINCE2 Agile  - and the update of PRINCE2 later this year - provides organizations with a great opportunity to review the way that they manage their programmes and projects. Using PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile and MSP effectively requires careful tailoring to take account of an organization's working practices, ethos, terminology and challenges.

Our lead trainer and author, Steve Tofts, is offering free, one day seminars on the way that the three approaches can be blended to provide an organization with an optimum project management framework. The seminar can be tailored to an organization’s individual requirements but typically covers:

  • key features of PRINCE2 2017, PRINCE2 Agile and MSP
  • blending the three methods
  • securing buy-in
  • implementation planning
  • developing capability

We run the seminars on-site at a client’s premises if you are able to provide an audience of four or more. We’ll also be running some public seminars in Bath. If you are interested in either of these options, please contact Steve at This email address is being protected from spambots.

No pre-course study…

When you attend one of our training events we won’t ask you to complete a pre-course study pack because we concentrate on teaching you the key principles of the methods from the first minute of the course. If you know what these principles are, and understand how to use them, we’re confident that you’ll be well prepared to pass the exams and be able to use the methods in the real world.

 

Our Exam Promise…

Since we became an accredited training organization in 2002 our exam pass-rate has been consistently above the national average. In fact we’re so confident that you’ll be fully prepared for the exams that we offer an exam promise for both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications. Should you fail to pass then you can resit the course once again for free, paying only your exam costs and a £10 per day contribution to your lunches and refreshments.

 

Top quality courseware…

We don’t use other company’s training material. We only use courseware that we’ve developed ourselves or that has been issued by AXELOS. Our materials are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that they reflect, and add value to, the latest version of the official manuals. You’ll find clear, well designed quick reference guides to all the major elements of the methodology and realistic case studies which illustrate how the method can be used in the real world.

 

Flexible scheduling…

Our flexible scheduling allows you to choose the routes to the Practitioner Certificate which best suits your individual learning style. For PRINCE2, some prefer the intensive, 5-day Practitioner Course which includes both the Foundation and Practitioner examination. Others prefer to take the 3 day Foundation Course, consolidate the knowledge they’ve gained, and then return for a 2-day Practitioner Workshop. Similar routes are available for MSP, but whatever your preference, we offer an effective route to these prestigious qualifications.

 

Great locations and venues…

We offer scheduled PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile and MSP courses in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath, and on-site training anywhere in the world. All of our training venues are carefully chosen to provide the right balance between ease of access and a bright and spacious environment in which to study. We always stick to our maximum of 12 delegates on any single training event, meaning that with Benchmark, you get an excellent tutor to delegate ratio and consequently great training!
