Overview

This course covers the qualification from AXELOS which represents an extension to PRINCE2®.  The course is equally divided between practical exercises and theory as it examines how to use PRINCE2® in an agile context.  The course ends with an exam that allows you to achieve PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner status.

Audience

PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner is for candidates who have attended the PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation course and wish to develop their skills further.

Learning Objectives
  • The course explains to delegates how to tailor PRINCE2® to work in the best way possible in an agile context. 
  • It looks at how to blend and weave the principles, processes and themes of PRINCE2® with many of the common ways of working in an agile way. 
  • It examines how to configure PRINCE2® when in different situations and how to incorporate the agile frameworks, behaviours, concepts and techniques in the best way possible to increase the chances of successful project delivery.
Pre-Requisites

Candidates can sit PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner if they hold any of the following project management certifications: PRINCE2® Foundation, PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation. Project Management Professional (PMP)*, Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)* and IMPA Levels A,B, C and D (Certified Project Director).

There is very little time spent on recapping PRINCE2® and therefore out of date knowledge or gaps in understanding of PRINCE2® will put the delegate at a disadvantage as PRINCE2 Agile®  builds on the candidates existing PRINCE2® knowledge.
