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.

Who should attend PRINCE2 Agile training?

PRINCE2 Agile training is open to anyone and is recommended for anybody interested in project management on agile projects, including:

  • Project managers.
  • Aspiring project managers
  • Team leaders.
  • Directors.
  • Board members.

PRINCE2 Agile training is applicable to a wide range of sectors and industries. It is particularly well suited to volatile and innovative projects, where scope is more likely to change (i.e., software development).

Benefits to individuals

  • PRINCE2 Agile can be applied to any project and provides project managers with tools, techniques, and practices that can be adapted and tailored to any industry sector or project.
  • PRINCE2 Agile is developed with the help of both PRINCE2 and agile professionals. It can be used with any established, agile approach.
  • If you're already familiar with PRINCE2, PRINCE 2 Agile is an excellent way to start introducing agile techniques to your projects without sacrificing productivity.
  • While agile is great for helping deliver your product, PRINCE2 helps aid the management of the project itself. Ensuring your projects adhere to your business's overall strategic objectives is where the PRINCE2 framework shines.
  • PRINCE2 is one of the most widely used project management methodologies in the world. Whether your organization already uses PRINCE2 and are looking to incorporate agile into its projects, or you're looking for an agile certification that will help you in your job prospects, you're sure to benefit from PRINCE2's popularity.
  • The agile incremental delivery approach allows you to start benefiting from your product's value early in the project.
  • The governance afforded by PRINCE2 ensures projects are managed and directed with control.
  • PRINCE2 Agile provides you with a way to get the best out of both agile and PRINCE2 approaches.

Benefits to organizations

  • PRINCE2 Agile practitioners can apply the PRINCE2 framework to any industry or sector. PRINCE2 Agile refines the management process by helping outline crucial factors and points of focus. At the same time, PRINCE2 gives project managers the flexibility to adapt the framework as they see fit.
  • PRINCE2 is the most widely used project management framework in the world. If your business already uses either PRINCE2 or agile, upskilling your staff in PRINCE2 Agile can help you enjoy a more holistic project management style.
  • Agile helps businesses realize the benefits of their products early on in development, instead of its conclusion. This can be great for projects designed to empower rapid change management and those in competitive industries where development time comes at a cost.
  • Agile project managers may be excellent at managing projects at a delivery level, but PRINCE2 management also helps ensure project success at a strategic level.
  • PRINCE2 Practitioners share common terminology and methodology, making it easier for them to collaborate and communicate with project development teams.
