PRINCE2 Agile, some preliminary facts (updated)

PRINCE2 AgileAxelos is getting closer to the launch date of PRINCE2 agile. June 24th is the date!

  • PRINCE2 Agile combines the control of PRINCE2, with the agility of Agile.
  • The course lasts 3 days;
  • Entry criterion: registered PRINCE2 Practitioner (means your last (re)registration is not older than 5 years!) I think they made a big mistake here. I would use as an entry criteria PRINCE2 Foundation, now a lot of potential candidates can’t go for PRINCE2 Agile;
  • Exam is 2,5 hours English multiple choice, objective test exam (15 CPD points);
  • PRINCE2 Agile means agile behaviours, agile frameworks, agile concepts, agile focus areas and agile techniques;
  • PRINCE2 Agile will work with any established agile approach;
  • PRINCE2 Agile will cover Scrum, Kanban, Cynefin and Lean Startup in detail. PRINCE2 Agile explains how they work and how to incorporate them into a project environment;
  • It will not work together with AgilePM;
  • PRINCE2 Agile contains four principle areas: Lean and flow based approaches (e.g. Kanban, Lean start-up), Iterative and time boxed (e.g. Scrum), Project focussed (e.g. Feature Driven Development), Standalone techniques (e.g. user stories);
  • The six PRINCE2 project controls stays but: don’t make Time and Cost flexible, Benefits and Risk could be flexible and Quality (Criteria) and Scope are flexible;
  • The 5 behaviours in PRINCE2 Agile: Collaboration, Self-organisation, Transparency, Rich communication and Exploration (asking for fast and often feedback: thus embracing change);
  • PRINCE2 Agile is for all projects, not only IT projects;
  • How much agility you can apply depends on the project. PRINCE2 Agile is all about behavior, tailoring, combining the best of PRINCE2 and Agile, gives control, good governance and is flexible and embraces pragmatism.

When I have access to the formal PRINCE2 Agile manual I will post a summary of the new PRINCE2 Agile approach.
