This course covers the new 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.
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.
