PRINCE2 Agile™ Practitioner - 4 days - including exam

Overview

PRINCE2® is the most commonly used project management approach in the world today and is increasingly being used in conjunction with Agile practices. As more and more organisations adopt and embed Agile, the need for specific guidance on how to use PRINCE2 in the context of Agile has become important.

PRINCE2 and Agile each have their own strengths and when combined they complement each other and create a holistic approach to managing projects in an Agile way. The strength of PRINCE2 lies in areas of project direction and project management, while Agile has a very strong focus on product delivery. Combining PRINCE2 and Agile delivers an integrated and seamless approach to managing and delivering modern projects.

PRINCE2 Agile™ describes how to configure and tune PRINCE2 so that it can be used in the most effective way when combining it with Agile behaviours, concepts, frameworks and techniques. PRINCE2 Agile does not favour one Agile approach over any other, it engages with Agile in all of its many forms to provide a holistic project management approach that can be tailored to suit a wide variety of project conditions.

It is important that potential students for this 4-day course are current certified PRINCE2® Practitioners and secondly that they have a basic understanding of what Agile is, otherwise combining PRINCE2 and Agile together will not be effective. It is also important to note that PRINCE2 Agile is not a substitute for PRINCE2.

The course includes a copy of the official PRINCE2 Agile publication, which is permitted for use in the exam.

It is important to know that some consolidation work will be required by candidates in the evenings; approximately 2 hours per evening.

By completing this course, the student will have sufficient knowledge to sit the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner Examination. The exam is held on day 4 of the course and results are made available immediately after the exam.
