PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner

Extending the PRINCE2® metodology with Agile

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Agile is a methodology that relies on iterative development such that the needs and solutions emerge from collaborations between self-dependent teams. Agile endorses a disciplined approach to project management. The Agile approach believes in best practices that help in rapid development while meeting the organisation’s goals as well.

PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner is an endeavour to bring together the advantages of both Agile as well as the PRINCE2®  methodology. The delegates will get the advantage of using both these technologies in a single go. Also, the Agile methodology can be used in any industry. Being an extension of the PRINCE2® methodology, PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner provides knowledge of agile frameworks, concepts and behaviours that are applicable to an organisation's projects. Various approaches such as the Scrum and Kanban can be used as a part of the PRINCE2® Agile methodology. PRINCE2® Agile has six characteristics that help deliver the projects on time and within the estimated budget of the organisation.
