PRINCE2 is a customer-focused project management methodology. It offers a set of principles, themes, and processes that helps organisations weigh the costs and risks of initiating a project. It helps the ongoing management of projects to ensure they remain a worthwhile investment.
Agile approaches do not focus on the value or management of a project as a whole. Instead, they focus on the development level, ensuring that any given product or service is delivered in the most efficient manner possible through an iterative cycle of development, testing, and analysing customer feedback.
While PRINCE2 enables the customer to remain focused on the project’s original business goals, Agile approaches are very responsive to changes in the project environment and customer requirements.
Utilising Agile approaches on PRINCE2 projects allows project managers to combine the structure and governance of PRINCE2 with the flexibility and responsiveness of Agile. PRINCE2 Agile training helps PRINCE2 project managers adapt their practices in agile ways.
Yes. Despite the common misconception that PRINCE2 struggles to adjust to changing business requirements, the PRINCE2 framework is, in fact, easy to adapt and tailor to suit any project environment.
PRINCE2 is sometimes described as having a prescriptive ‘waterfall’ approach, whereby requirements are documented and approved before moving to the design, build, and testing phase. This is, however, incorrect. PRINCE2 assumes that on many projects, requirements emerge and evolve as the project continues.
PRINCE2 manages project-level changes using its ‘change control’ approach. Smaller changes at the development level can easily be managed using the prioritisation techniques common in Agile approaches.
PRINCE2 Agile elaborates on the tools team leaders, and project managers can use at the development level to facilitate faster autonomous development.
It’s not accurate to compare PRINCE2 and Agile as equivalent project management solutions. For one, agile has nothing to do with project management. Instead, it focuses squarely on issues encountered by individuals and small teams at the development level.
PRINCE2, on the other hand, is generally more concerned with the ‘big questions’ like “Should we do this project?” “How do we avoid risks and failure” or “How can we be sure that 6 months from now this product will still be desirable?”
PRINCE2 and Agile are not competing methods. PRINCE2 Agile was developed specifically to show that they are complementary approaches to different problems.
