PRINCE2 AGILE® FOUNDATION AND PRACTITIONER - INCLUDING EXAMS

Course Code P2AFP

Duration 5 days

COURSE OVERVIEW

This five-day course is a combination of the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner courses and provides both exams. It provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the PRINCE2 Agile® methodology. During the course we introduce the PRINCE2® methodology and concepts of common agile ways of working, discuss how to blend PRINCE2® with Agile, the purpose and context for blending PRINCE2® and the agile way of working, evaluate the focus areas to a project in an agile context, fix and flex the six aspects of a project in an agile context and be able to apply or tailor the PRINCE2® for a project in an agile context.

All relevant course materials are provided, including the official publication PRINCE2 Agile® and both web proctored exam vouchers.

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®.

PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner covers the 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.

TARGET AUDIENCE

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.
