About the Program
PRINCE2 Agile is a solution combining the flexibility and responsiveness of Agile with the clearly defined framework of PRINCE2. PRINCE2 Agile framework covers a wide range of agile concepts, including SCRUM, Kanban, and Lean Startup.

The strength of PRINCE2 lies in the areas of project direction and project management, whereas Agile has a very strong focus on product delivery. When PRINCE2 and agile are combined, project direction, project management, and project delivery are optimized to create a complete project management solution.

PRINCE2 Agile is an extension module tailored for forward-thinking organizations and individuals already benefiting from PRINCE2. It provides further guidance on how to apply agile methods to the world’s most recognized project management method. PRINCE2 Agile has been developed as a single-tier Practitioner qualification. The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to demonstrate that you can apply and tailor PRINCE2 Agile in a scenario situation.

Benefits

  • Agile methods allow organizations to realize the benefits of products and potentially an earlier return on investment while products are being developed and improved.
  • Improved communication through the use of common terminology across PRINCE2 and agile disciplines.
  • Develop a clear definition of how agile can govern a project’s delivery, while PRINCE2 governs projects as a whole.
  • Seamless integration: PRINCE2 Agile will complement PMBOK® and APM Body of Knowledge® just as PRINCE2 does currently. It will also be of interest for Program Managers with MSP® who need to understand how projects relate to the delivery mechanism.
  • The most up-to-date and relevant view of Agile project management methodologies, PRINCE2 Agile references the “flow-based” working featured in Kanban in addition to other agile concepts not covered in other qualifications.
