PRINCE2 Agile™

As with PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile can be applied to any type of project within any industry sector.



PRINCE2 Agile is an extension of PRINCE2®, tailored for forward-thinking organizations and individuals already benefiting from PRINCE2. It provides guidance on how to apply agile methods to the world’s most recognised project management method. PRINCE2: 2009 is fully compatible with agile delivery approaches. The starting point is to manage projects with PRINCE2 and work packages via agile. PRINCE2 doesn’t tell you how to deliver work packages as these are industry-specific and can be tailored with agile approaches.

Specific learning outcomes include being able to:

  • Describe the fundamental frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, Lean Startup), behaviours, concepts and techniques of common agile ways of working
  • Explain how PRINCE2 Agile is used only in a project context, including the difference between projects and business as usual
  • Explain which agile ways of working are suitable for use with PRINCE2 Agile
  • Recognise common perceptions of traditional methodology (e.g. waterfall, command and control, bureaucracy, detail up-front)
  • Recognise 8 guidance points regarding PRINCE2 Agile
  • Explain benefits (to the organisation, to projects, to programmes, to people) of combining PRINCE2 with agile
  • Describe the need to ‘blend and weave’ PRINCE2 with agile at all levels of a project (project direction, project management and product delivery)
  • Evaluate the application of focus areas (the Agilometer, requirements, rich communication, frequent releases and contracts), key techniques in a project in an agile context
  • Evaluate the impact of the tolerances set for the six PRINCE2 aspects of a project in an agile context, taking into account the rationale for the five targets
  • Assess the level of maturity of a specific project environment with respect to agile
  • Apply PRINCE2 principles to meet the needs of a project, using a range of agile frameworks, behaviours, concepts and techniques
  • Evaluate how PRINCE2 principles can be applied to meet project needs, including using a range of agile behaviours
  • Tailor and evaluate how PRINCE2 themes to meet the needs of a project using a range of agile frameworks, behaviours, concepts and techniques
  • Tailor and evaluate how PRINCE2 management products to meet the needs of a project using a range of agile frameworks, behaviours, concepts and techniques
This course is designed for those with a good understanding of PRINCE2 at a Practitioner level and looking at interactions with agile methods, including:

  • Project Managers
  • Team managers and leads
  • Project Team members
  • Programme Managers

PRINCE2 Agile is an extension unit for PRINCE Practitioners.

Candidates must hold a current PRINCE2 Practitioner Certificate to be eligible for the exam.

Note: PRINCE2 Foundation does NOT provide the level of depth required to adequately prepare participants for PRINCE2 Agile. 

This course examines how PRINCE2 and agile methods can interact and be adapted to accommodate each other in order to

benefit the overall management of projects. It will help experienced PRINCE2 practitioners tailor management controls for agile development.
