Programme overview

This course combines PRINCE2 and Agile methodologies to provide a flexible, scalable approach to project management. 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.

    the agile way of working

    agile context
  • Be able to fix and flex the six aspects of a project in an agile context

Who is the course for?
