What is PRINCE2 Agile?

PRINCE2 Agile combines the flexibility and responsiveness of Agile with the clearly defined framework of PRINCE2.  PRINCE2 Agile is tailored for forward-thinking organisations and individuals already benefiting from PRINCE2 that would like further guidance on how to apply agile methods to the world’s most recognised project management method.

Its primary purpose is to support organisations and individuals who are using PRINCE2 and wish to extend their knowledge and understanding of Agile.  Whilst applying agile concepts within their existing project management environment.

Why do you need PRINCE2 Agile?

It combines control with agility to your project management environment.


  • PRINCE2 embodies established and proven best practice in project management, navigating you through all essentials for running successful projects, whether they are large or small.
  • Structured approach with controls to provide a delivery methodology that works repeatedly and will enable you to successfully deliver projects.


  • An incremental method of managing the design and build activities for engineering, information technology and new product or service development projects in a highly flexible and interactive manner.
  • Best meets current customer needs and is delivered with minimal costs, waste and time, enabling companies to achieve bottom-line gains earlier than via traditional approaches.

PRINCE2 Agile’s four principle areas will look at four key things:

  1. Lean and flow based approaches (e.g. Kaban, Lean start-up)
  2. Iterative and time boxed (e.g. Scrum)
  3. Project focused (e.g. DSDM, Feature Driven Development) [FDD may also be considered IT or iterative]
  4. Standalone techniques (e.g. user stories)

PRINCE2 Agile is the only agile project framework which covers the full spectrum of agile, with the inclusion of SCRUM, Kanban, Cynefin and Lean Startup.  Unlike other agile project management methodologies, PRINCE2 Agile explains how they work and how to incorporate them into a project environment.

PRINCE2 Agile is all about using PRINCE2 and Agile in the right place. Combining them together like the ingredients of a cake; blending until you have the perfect mixture.

  • Allows you to scale
  • Corporate friendly
  • Get the best of both worlds
  • Control and good governance
  • Flexibility and pragmatism
  • Get some method into the madness!

Why PRINCE2 Agile over other agile project management methodologies?

  • The most up-to-date and relevant view of Agile project management methodologies, and the only framework covering SCRUM, Kanban, Cynefin and Lean Startup.
  • For existing PRINCE2 practitioners, PRINCE2 Agile is the most applicable route to build on their existing knowledge, as they’re already familiar with the terminology, such as role names, product names and process names.
  • The PRINCE2 Agile exam is based on Blooms level 3 and 4 questions, so will demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the application of agile methodologies and not merely test knowledge recall.
