PRINCE2 Agile™ combines the PRINCE2® project management framework with agile concepts and techniques to create a complete agile project management solution. PRINCE2 Agile offers a very current solution, and contains many elements of the current agile thinking such as lean start up and builds on Scrum and Kanban. Filmed during a recent PRINCE2 Agile training session with lead author Keith Richards, AXELOS asked the candidates for their thoughts on the new qualification. The students gave us their first impressions and told us what they hoped they would gain from the new approach to project management. Our candidates discussed how PRINCE2 Agile differs from and builds on conventional waterfall project management techniques and the potential it offers to help them adapt their own methods to incorporate agile. We also heard how they expected combining PRINCE2 and agile in their management would help their organizations improve processes and delivery and improve their services to clients. Please note that two of the candidates we interviewed are PRINCE2 Agile trainers, one of whom had already sat the exam.
