Course Introduction

This course provides training and exams for 2 valuable Agile certifications: PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner. Together, these certifications provide guidance and understanding of how to work with PRINCE2 in an Agile environment.

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation & Practitioner

Our PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and Practitioner course provides 4 days of tuition, plus two exams. It provides a full understanding of how to use PRINCE2 and Agile together to allow project management to react to changes while still being controlled within a strong governance structure. The course starts with the basics of PRINCE2, meaning no previous knowledge is needed, before looking at how which parts of a project can be flexible and which should be fixed.
