PRINCE2® Agile

In-house training only
Nationwide
3 days
Purpose: 

PRINCE2 Agile® is being offered as an extension certification for those who already have a good understanding of PRINCE2 It will also be of interest for Programme Managers with MSP certification who will need to understand not only how the programme relates to projects, but also how projects relate to the delivery mechanism.

The majority of the guidance and course material will be new for those already familiar with PRINCE2, and will look at the interactions between the two approaches and how each needs to be adapted to accommodate the other.

Exam Information: 
  • 2.5 hour exam

Throughout the PRINCE2 Agile course, delegates will be exposed to numerous examples of examination questions.

We will undertake a number of exercises and 'question-and-answer' sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the final examination.
