Who should attend this PRINCE2 Agile Training Course?

This training course is intended for anyone who delivers, manages, or works within agile projects and project teams, thus Project Managers, Project Support, Delivery Team Support, and those within PMO roles may wish to attend this training.

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation and Practitioner is also aimed at professionals working in an agile environment, who desire more structure and governance in their delivery. Therefore, Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, Product Owner, Product Managers, and Delivery Team Members may also benefit from this training.

Prerequisites

No prior knowledge of PRINCE2® is required to take this certification. There are also no formal prerequisites, so anyone interested in the topic can attend this course.

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation and Practitioner Course Overview

Our 4-day combined PRINCE2® Agile Foundation and Practitioner course provides a full understanding of the PRINCE2® Agile methodology and training for two highly respected professional certifications: PRINCE2® Agile Foundation and PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner. Both exams are included.

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. The PRINCE2® Agile Foundation and Practitioner exams are both included.

The PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation and Practitioner certification course is fully accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS, a world-leading best practice provider.


PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation Training

The PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation section of the course lasts 2 days and aims to introduce delegates to the core components of PRINCE2 Agile®. This world-renowned project management certification will familiarise delegates with the basics of PRINCE2® and how to tailor the method to be used in an agile context. Delegates will also acquire an understanding of fundamental agile concepts and techniques, such as Scrum, Lean Startup, Kanban, and Cynefin.

The certification is intended as an additional route to PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner for those who do not previously hold PRINCE2® certification. Prior knowledge of PRINCE2® is not required, making it suitable for a wide audience who work on, deliver, or manage agile projects and project teams.


PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner Training

The PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner section of the course lasts 2 days and aims to educate delegates on how PRINCE2 can be tailored to agile-specific scenarios. PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner 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 completion, delegates will be able to apply PRINCE2 Agile® to specific scenarios but may not be able to tailor it to their own projects, as this skill will be dependent on the individual’s expertise.

*The PRINCE2 Practitioner exam is taken online.

We provide comprehensive support during the exam process to make the experience as simple as possible. This exam can be taken at a suitable time, subject to availability, online and from anywhere.

Benefits of online exams include:

  • Proven higher pass rates
  • Quicker Results
  • Save Travel Costs
  • Flexibility
  • Convenient
  • Take your exam at your home, office, or work when you are ready
