PRINCE2 comes to credit risk insurance experts
After being appointed to provide PRINCE2 training for leading global trade credit insurer Atradius, ILX had to consider the challenge of developing a training programme that would train staff based in multiple locations across Germany, Belgium and the UK up to Foundation level. The end solution was facilitated through accredited PRINCE2 digital learning, with the added benefit of telephone-based trainer support.
Brian Winterbourne, Programme Manager at Atradius, comments: "We have a team of nearly 30 people specifically responsible for delivering complex IT projects from large scale data centre upgrades to developing bespoke risk applications for our clients. We wanted to fast track our project managers with PRINCE2 foundation training as we knew it would help standardise our internal processes and improve the way we managed projects. We initially thought of introducing classroom based training, but it quickly became apparent that an e-learning solution would help give our busy staff greater flexibility to learn at times that suited them."
ILX's PRINCE2 course has now been adopted beyond Atradius' IT division and has been taken up by people holding project management related responsibilities in the wider Atradius business. The online course materials are also openly licensed to all its 4,000 staff across Europe and worldwide.
Winterbourne adds: "The ILX e-learning system allows us to view progress being made on the course and who's preparing ahead of exams through a simple online dashboard hosted by ILX.
We were surprised at how quickly our project managers and project coordinators started to use common language shortly after starting the course. The feedback from the team has been extremely positive. The roll out of PRINCE2 has created a great team spirit amongst our offices across Europe and created a healthy competition as everyone now wants to score a hundred percent pass rate."
