QRP International has a core purpose, which is: developing professionals to facilitate changes. We believe in change as a tool for growth and improvement, not only professionally, but also in our society. This is the reason why we strongly believe in the importance of supporting charity projects with a cause that make our society a better place. Every year we stand by this principle of contributing our part as a company. This year we chose to support Fondazione ABIO Italia ETS. Since 1978, ABIO has cared for children and teenagers in hospitals and their families. Fondazione ABIO has been managing relations with healthcare facilities and local administrations in all Italy. It is focused on promoting the culture of volunteering as well as hospital rights of children, adolescents and parents. In order to do so, Fondazione ABIO organises and coordinates activities of volunteers locally, putting into practice the principles and values on which ABIO is built: care, humanity, attention to needs, respect for rights and support. Fondazione ABIO is committed to supporting children, adolescents and their families from the moment they enter hospital, offering emotional and practical support. This includes creating welcoming environments, promoting their rights and training volunteers to ensure an effective service tailored to hospital needs. ABIO promotes projects to improve hospital environments and ensure that children's rights are respected from the very beginning of hospitalisation. Supporting Fondazione ABIO is important to QRP International, as most of its employees have children and understand how crucial it is to ensure support for children and their families during difficult times in the hospital. Making a donation to Fondazione ABIO means supporting an organisation that works with 53 local voluntary associations, present in more than 200 paediatric centres throughout Italy. Thanks to this support ABIO can guarantee the presence of around 4,000 volunteers alongside sick children, adolescents and families during their hospital journey, offering comfort, emotional support and fun moments through games and a colourful environment. Each donation contributes to making the healing journey more comfortable and humanising for young patients and their families. Do you feel that Fondazione ABIO also is in line with your values?

PRINCE2®, the world’s leading project management method, has evolved to meet the needs of the future. The method has been updated to reflect the modern realities of managing successful projects in the 21st century, incorporating the latest processus, tools and technologies to stay ahead of the curve. All changes come together in the latest edition, PRINCE2 7. From April 2024, QRP International offers PRINCE2 7 training not only in English, but now also in French. PRINCE2 has been the gold standard for global project management practices since 1996. It is a flexible and adaptable method that can be tailored to any project, regardless of size, purpose or industry. PRINCE2 7, the latest version, addresses the changes in the project management sector and adapts to evolving working practices and technologies.

PRINCE2® 7 enhances Project Management

With PRINCE2 7, project management is brought up to speed with the current business environment and it is enhanced in the following ways:
  • Emphasising People: PRINCE2 7 recognizes the vital role of individuals in project success, incorporating a human element into its methodology.
  • Sustainability in Project Performance: PRINCE2 7 introduces Sustainability as a critical aspect of project performance, aligning projects with environmental and social responsibility goals.
  • Digital & Data Management: It incorporates a digital and data management framework to meet evolving project management needs.
  • Enhanced Adaptability: PRINCE2 7 offers greater adaptability for customization to specific project contexts, empowering managers to align projects with strategic goals.
  • Integration with Agile, Lean and ITIL: It provides guidance on not only integrating Agile and other Best Practices, but also on digital transformation projects, fostering collaboration and responsiveness.
  • Designed for all professionals: including aspiring or experienced project managers, using simplified language and content which makes it more accessible to all.
PRINCE2 7 meets modern project demands, equipping managers and teams with refined tools for complexity management and excellence. Its significance is bridging the gap between structured project management and the dynamic demands of today’s business environment.

PRINCE2 7 Training and Certification

The new edition of the PRINCE2 method has been officially launched early September 2023. QRP International has been offering courses in English since that moment. As PeopleCert recently also launched the translations of the PRINCE2 7 method, QRP International will offer PRINCE2 7 Training also in French from April 2024 onwards. QRP International has made sure all our trainers are certified in PRINCE2 7 and are ready to train you and your team too. We provide the PRINCE2 7 Foundation, Practitioner and Combi training both as classroom and virtual training in English and French. All planned training sessions from April onward shall use the PRINCE2 7 version. Our PRINCE2 E-Learning in English and French are based on PRINCE2 7. Our open classroom and virtual training in Dutch will continue to be based on the 6th edition of the method. PRINCE2 7 courses can be organized on request (in English). Our PRINCE2 7 certification training courses also include complimentary Take2, which is one free exam resit should you fail on the first attempt at the examination. For more information, feel free to contact us. In collaboration with PeopleCert, QRP International organised a webinar to talk you through the latest update and explain why now is the best time to get PRINCE2 7 certified. Furthermore, you can also read our blog: “What’s new in PRINCE2 7?”
