    About Prince2 Agile certification

    Why PRINCE2 Agile?

    PRINCE2 focuses on understanding what products are required to support business needs. PRINCE2 Agile, on the other hand, focuses on how to deliver these products on time through incremental development.

    By applying an agile approach to PRINCE2 projects, you can get the best of both worlds – the structure and direction of PRINCE2, coupled with the flexibility and responsiveness of agile

    PRINCE2 isn’t concerned with the organization or delivery methods. It simply helps clients interface with developers. Those working on a PRINCE2 project can use any approach they choose – including one of the many agile approaches (providing they comply with the interface defined by PRINCE2).

    PRINCE2 Agile teams therefore, can use agile to gain all the benefits of iterative development, while the customer maintains the benefits of PRINCE2’s focus on business justification.
