PRINCE2 Agile in one picture

In one of my previous posts I already gave some preliminary facts regarding the new PRINCE2 Agile framework. See: preliminary facts 

In this post you get a simple overview regarding PRINCE2 Agile. This framework is based on blending PRINCE2 and agile together. PRINCE2 is strong in the areas of project directing and project management and agile is strong in the area of product delivery. It’s not a matter to chose between PRINCE2 or agile but to decide how far you can go using specific agile ways of working by tailoring the PRINCE2 approach. The new framework offers the Agilometer to understand how far you can go using agile. Together with the usage of the Cynefin framework created by David Snowden you must have a good view how to blend PRINCE2 and agile.

For the PRINCE2 part this new framework is based on the existing PRINCE2 2009 version. For the agile part they use The definitive guide to scrum by Ken Swaber and Jeff Sutherland (integral copy included in the manual) and material based on The lean startup by Eric Ries and Kanban – Successful evolutionary change for your technology business by David Anderson (see book review).

Besides these frameworks you can also find explanation of behaviour in the areas of collaboration, self-organisation, transparency, rich communication and exploration.

In a next post I will give a summary of PRINCE2 Agile based on the official PRINCE2 Agile manual.
