PRINCE2 Agile®

Don’t get left behind…

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.

About this course

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.  Therefore, when PRINCE2 and agile are combined, all three areas are addressed.
