PRINCE2 Agile in a nutshell

AXELOS’ qualifications are recognised globally and held in high regard by many employers. They have recently developed a new PRINCE2 qualification, PRINCE2 Agile®, which combines project management and agile methods. Here’s what they have to say about it:

PRINCE2 Agile has been developed as a single-tier Practitioner qualification. The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to demonstrate that you can apply and tailor PRINCE2 Agile in a scenario situation.

A successful Practitioner candidate should be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Your individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2 Agile in your work environment will all be factors that impact what you can achieve.
