Overview

This three day course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the PRINCE2 Agile guidance, and is aligned to the current version of PRINCE2.

Course Outline

  • During the course we introduce the basic concepts of common agile ways of working, discuss the purpose and context for combing PRINCE2 and the agile way of working, evaluate the focus areas to a project in an agile context, fix and flex the six aspects of a project in an agile context, and be able to apply or tailor the PRINCE2 principles, themes, processes and management products to a project in an agile context.
  • The PRINCE2 Agile course uses a combination of theory, discussion and practical exercises to ensure delegates feel confident in the application of the concepts. Additional evening work will be required in the form of consolidation reading and mock examination questions.
