PRINCE2 6th Edition & Agile Together

The Best of Both Worlds

EXPLORE THIS COURSE

The best of both worlds

Not every organization uses purely Agile or purely Waterfall delivery methods to meet project objectives. This five-day intensive course enables participants to fully understand the PRINCE2 method and delivers a comprehensive look at how to use it in both delivery environments. It is meant for individuals working in organizations where complex projects may be faced with varying degrees of adaptive and prescriptive requirements. The course is fully accredited and provides delegates with all the support they require to pass both examinations. Both examinations are administered during the course. Participants are required to pass the 6th Edition Foundation examination prior to writing the Agile Practitioner exam.

The foundation component teaches individuals the basics of PRINCE2 and enables them to become certified at the Foundation level. The Practitioner component helps delegates expand on the knowledge gained at the Foundation level and allows them to apply this knowledge within a project management case study setting. To enable this in an efficient and effective manner, an approved case study is used as the focal point of the course.

Participants are required to complete approximately 4 hours of pre-course work prior to attending the first session. In addition, individuals should be prepared to complete some evening work.

Reference

“The trainers are real professionals with years of hands-on project experience, which really helped me understand the theory in a real life context. I couldn't have wished for a better preparation for my PRINCE2 exam, which I passed without a problem. Now being PRINCE2 certified, I cannot wait to work on my next project.”
