Course Information

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation Course Overview

This newly developed PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation training course will introduce delegates to the core components of PRINCE2 Agile®. The certification is intended as an additional route to PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner, thus providing delegates with another option by which to gain this desired qualification. Prior knowledge of PRINCE2® is not required, therefore appealing to a wider audience who work, deliver, or manage agile projects and project teams.

This world-renowned agile project management certification will familiarise delegates with the basics of PRINCE2® and how to tailor the method in an agile context. Delegates will also acquire an understanding of fundamental agile concepts and techniques, such as Scrum, Lean Startup, Kanban, and Cynefin. Implementing PRINCE2 Agile® within an organisation can provide a variety of benefits, such as enhanced value of delivery, reduced risk of deficient products via incremental and iterative delivery, and the emergence of disciplined flexibility. This PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation certification is fully accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS, a world-leading best practice provider.

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation Course Objectives

  1. Prepare for the PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation Exam
  2. Understand the key aspects of PRINCE2®
  3. Understand basic concepts behind common agile ways of working
  4. Demonstrate the purpose of combining PRINCE2® with agile
  5. Be able to fix and flex the six aspects of a project in an agile context
  6. Apply the PRINCE2® principles and tailor the themes, processes, and management
  7. products to a project in an agile context
  8. Incorporate the areas that can support a PRINCE2 Agile® implementation

PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner Overview

This PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner certification consists of a 3 day, trainer-led course that aims to educate delegates on how PRINCE2 Agile® can be tailored to specific scenarios. This course has been developed as a single-tier certification to allow those who already have an existing project management knowledge to learn how Agile can be incorporated into their projects.

By combining the methods of PRINCE2® and Agile, the certification aims to provide individuals with a framework for their projects that is precise and controllable, whilst still being quick to adapt to sudden changes. By the completion of this course, delegates will be able to apply PRINCE2 Agile® to specific scenarios but may not be able to tailor it to their own projects, this skill will be dependent on the individual’s expertise.

This PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner Certification is fully accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS, a world leading best practice provider.
