PRINCE2 Agile ®

PRINCE2 Agile combines the flexibility and responsiveness of agile with the clearly defined framework of PRINCE2®. PRINCE2 Agile® covers a wide range of agile concepts, including SCRUM, Kanban and Lean Startup. As with PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile can be applied to any type of project within any industry sector. PRINCE2 Agile is a new extension module tailored for forward thinking organizations and individuals already benefiting from PRINCE2 that would like further guidance on how to apply agile methods to the world’s most recognized project management method. The new certification and training helps PRINCE2 practitioners tailor management controls for agile development, while helping maintain PRINCE2 governance requirements.

/ WHAT IS

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. It provides guidance on tailoring PRINCE2 in an agile context and includes:

  • How to tailor the integrated set of PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes
  • How to produce the PRINCE2 management products
  • How to map the common agile roles to the PRINCE2 project management team structure
  • How to incorporate the fundamental agile behaviours, concepts and techniques into PRINCE2

/ APPROACH AND DURATION

The event is delivered by an experienced and accredited trainer who will facilitate interactive group work and encourage the learning experience through the use of multiple training mediums, group work and exercises.

The event is delivered over 4 days.

In order to be eligible for the PRINCE2 Agile qualification candidates need to hold PRINCE2 Practitioner status (i.e. to have passed the PRINCE2 Practitioner or PRINCE2 Practitioner Re-registration exam within the last 5 years). The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2 Agile in a scenario situation.

Exam Format (Open Book)

  • Objective testing
  • 50 questions, each worth one mark
  • 30 marks or more required to pass (out of 50 available) – 60% pass mark
  • Two-and-a-half hours (150 minutes) duration, no additional reading time

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your unique requirements.
