More about PRINCE2 Agile

What is PRINCE2 Agile?

Agile methods have become increasingly popular in recent years, with organisations across all industries realising the benefits and successes that agile can bring.

Combining PRINCE2 with agile creates a more powerful approach, offering the flexibility of agile, but still retaining the authority, strength and governance of PRINCE2.

PRINCE2 Agile was developed due to popular demand. It was felt there was a need for something which addressed common project governance issues which affected agile projects. PRINCE2 originated well before the days of agile during the time when waterfall projects were common. PRINCE2’s strengths have always laid in its strong control and project governance.

Who attends PRINCE2 Agile training?

People who attend a PRINCE2 Agile course often includes the following:

  • Programme managers, project managers, project support staff
  • Those with project governance responsibilities
  • Students who already hold one of these qualifications:
  • PRINCE2 Foundation
  • PRINCE2 Agile Foundation
  • Project Management Professional® (PMP)*
  • Certified Associate in Project Management® (CAPM)*
  • IPMA Levels A,B,C and D® (Certified Projects Director).

Who benefits from a PRINCE2 Agile course?

Anyone who is working on, supporting, managing, or directing Agile projects will benefit from attending a PRINCE2 Agile course.

A PRINCE2 Agile course will benefit anyone wanting to learn to apply PRINCE2 on agile projects. They might be from project support, team members, team managers or team leaders, project managers or people directing projects.

A PRINCE2 Agile course will also benefit people from an agile background who want to learn how agile ways of working can be integrated with the governance and controls of PRINCE2.

Other people who might benefit from a PRINCE 2 Agile course include people wanting to learn to deliver agile projects within a corporate environment which does not have an agile mindset.

An understanding of the agile concepts learned on a PRINCE2 Agile course is also beneficial to those with governance responsibilities for projects using agile delivery approaches as well as those involved with programme and project support functions.


PRINCE2 Agile provides the control and governance of PRINCE2 and combines it with the flexibility of agile.

PRINCE2 Agile is essentially the same as PRINCE2, except the official manual provides additional advice for people who want to blend PRINCE2 with agile.

The PRINCE2 Agile manual also offers a good introduction to key agile roles, concepts, and tools such as the product owner, scrum master, and information radiators.

It is suitable for those who are managing agile projects and/or want to use PRINCE2 alongside popular agile approaches such as Scrum and Kanban.

PRINCE2 Agile comes with 2 certification exams, both equivalent to the standard PRINCE2 exams. These are PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner.
