Further information on Prince2Agile

PRINCE2 is the most commonly used project management approach in the world, and is increasingly being used in conjunction with agile.  The strength of PRINCE2 lies in the areas of project direction and project management.

Conversely, agile has a very strong focus on project delivery but relatively little on project direction and project management.  The term “agile” can very broadly be viewed as a set of well-known frameworks referred to as “agile methods” and there are also well-known behaviours, concepts and techniques that are recognised as characterising the agile way of working.  This course has identified a family of frameworks ( also referred to as methods or approaches) that are generally recognised as being agile, which have been incorporated in PRINCE2Agile.

PRINCE2Agile describes how to configure and adapt PRINCE2 so that PRINCE2 can be used in the most effective way when combining it with agile behaviours, concepts, frameworks and techniques.
