About this Course

PRINCE2 Agile® is the world’s most complete project management solution, combining the flexibility and responsiveness of agile with the governance of PRINCE2®.

PRINCE2 is the most commonly used project management approach in the world, and it is increasingly being used in conjunction with agile. As more organisations adopt agile, the need for specific guidance on how to use PRINCE2 in an agile context has grown accordingly.  In simple terms, PRINCE2 and agile each have their own strengths and when combined they complement each other and create a holistic approach to managing projects.

The strength of PRINCE2 lies in the areas of project direction and project management. However, it provides little focus on the field of product delivery.  Conversely, agile has a very strong focus on product delivery but relatively little on project direction and project management.  When PRINCE2 and agile are combined, all three areas are addressed.

Who is this course for?

PRINCE2 Agile is suitable for anyone who delivers projects, large or small, in an agile context.

It is a valuable training and certification scheme for anyone working within an agile project environment, whether they are:

FAQs

What do you mean by virtual training?

When we refer to virtual (classroom) training we are meaning just that: delivering live training (not pre-recorded) with a trainer to wherever you are real-time – otherwise referred to as Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT). Our trainers are based in actual training rooms complete with training and AV equipment.

What will I experience during a virtual training session?

Your virtual classroom trainer has access to a variety of options to ensure effective communication and learning, both individually and as a group, including:

  • Changing how webcams are viewed
  • Screen sharing to display a document, presentation or other training content
  • Changing the view to make an attendee the presenter
  • Conducting polls and tests
  • Splitting the classroom into small groups for activities
  • Uploading materials

How do I interact with the trainer? Other attendees?

Collaboration and actively participating in a training session are essential. You can:

  • Raise and submit questions/comments to the trainer or other attendees
  • Use shared apps and drawing tools to collaborate with the whole group
  • Participate in ‘breakout’ rooms for activities/small group discussions
  • Share the trainer’s keyboard and mouse control

Note: Drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing are available on the installed desktop app only.

How long will a session be before I can have a break?

As virtual training is a very different experience to face-to-face training, each virtual session will be a maximum of 90 minutes (many sessions will be shorter), followed by a break. Your trainer will confirm the timings of breaks at the start of each day.
