PRINCE2® Agile Combined Foundation & Practitioner Training Course

Learn To Blend The Structure Of PRINCE2® With The Flexibility Of Agile Methods

Introduction

Agile methods have become increasingly popular in recent years, with organisations across all industries realising the benefits and successes Agile can bring.

Combining PRINCE2® with Agile methods creates a more powerful approach, offering the flexibility of Agile, but still retaining the authority, strength and governance of PRINCE2®.

Based Upon Demand

PRINCE2® Agile was developed due to popular demand. It was felt there was a need for something which addressed common project governance issues which affected Agile projects.

PRINCE2® originated well before the days of Agile during the time when waterfall projects were common. PRINCE2®’s strengths have always laid in its strong control and project governance.
