Why should I take the PRINCE2 Agile course?

PRINCE2 Agile represents an evolution of PRINCE2, being the first extension module to the PRINCE2 method. This certification helps you to tailor PRINCE2 for your organization in an agile way. Since the 2001 Agile Manifesto, agile approaches are becoming more popular for many reasons:

  • Incremental delivery of products
  • Time box and iterative approach to delivering
  • A collection of techniques such as daily stand-up meetings, sprints and users’ stories
  • Collaboration working

PRINCE2 Agile describes how to configure and tune PRINCE2 so that PRINCE2 can be used in the most effective way when combining it with agile behavior, concepts, frameworks and techniques.
