PRINCE2 ® Agile ™ Course
(course code PR2A3)
The strength of PRINCE2 lies in the areas of project direction and project management whereas agile has a very strong focus on product delivery. When PRINCE2 and agile are combined, project direction, project management and project delivery are all optimized to create the world's most complete project management solution.
PRINCE2 Agile is the most up-to-date and relevant view of agile project management methods, and the only framework covering a wide range of agile concepts, including SCRUM, Kanban and Lean Startup.
This 3-day course provides each participant with an understanding of the PRINCE2 Agile extension.
By the end of the PRINCE2 Agile course participants should:
- Understand the basic concepts of common agile ways of working;
- Understand the purpose and context for combining PRINCE2 and agile ways of working;
- Be able to apply and evaluate the agile focus areas to a project;
- Be able to fix and flex the six aspects of a project in an agile context;
