Practitioner Certificate in Agile Project Management - PRINCE2 Agile®

We are the FIRST Training Organization in India to get this Accreditation 2 days before the launch date (June 20th 2015)

Image description

PRINCE2 Agile® is the world’s most complete agile project management solution, combining the flexibility and responsiveness of agile with the clearly defined framework of PRINCE2®. It describes how to configure and tune PRINCE2 so that PRINCE2 can be used in the most effective way when combining it with Agile behaviours, concepts, frameworks and techniques.

PRINCE2 Agile® is an extension module tailored for forward-thinking organizations and individuals already benefiting from PRINCE2. It provides further guidance on how to apply agile methods to the world’s most recognized project management method.

The Concept


PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile are only suitable for use on projects, whereas Agile can be used for projects and routine ongoing work as well. Throughout this manual, routine ongoing work is referred to as ‘business as usual’ (BAU) and covers such areas as ongoing product development, product maintenance and continual improvement. The distinction between project work and BAU work is important because some of the Agile ways of working need to be applied differently in each situation. Therefore, when carrying out a piece of work it is important to understand the type of work being undertaken, to ensure that it is addressed in the appropriate way and that Agile is used appropriately.

Target Audience

This qualification is aimed at Project Managers who hold a current PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. It is also relevant to other key staff involved with integrating project management with product delivery. An understanding of the agile concepts within PRINCE2 Agile will also be beneficial to those with governance responsibilities for projects using agile delivery approaches as well as those involved with programme and project support functions.
