Duration 3 days


To complement the AXELOS PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner qualification, the Introduction of the PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation certification reinforces PRINCE2 Agile®’s unrivalled reputation as the world’s most complete agile project management method; combining the benefits of agile ways of working, with the governance and structure of the PRINCE2 method.

The introduction of PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation will enable everyone to benefit from guidance on delivering, managing or working within agile projects and project teams, without the need for any prior knowledge of PRINCE2®.

This 3-day course determines how to use PRINCE2® with Agile ways of working as a foundation certification course.


This course is aimed at candidates who are new to PRINCE2® and are working in or around an agile project environment. The course covers an overview of PRINCE2®, an introduction to agile, and how to apply the two together.

PRINCE2 Agile® has been developed for anyone who delivers projects, large or small, in an agile context. It is a valuable training and certification scheme for anyone working within an agile project environment, whether they be a project manager, project support or part of the wider project team.

PRINCE2 Agile® equips practitioners and organizations with the ability to deliver agile projects by tailoring the PRINCE2® project management method with a broad toolset of agile delivery techniques and frameworks. In this way, practitioners will leverage the benefits of agile ways of working such as iterative and incremental delivery while maintaining a structure of project governance.
