A ground-breaking initiative to blend PRINCE2 and agile methods in a new best practice guide and qualification is underway at AXELOS and scheduled to launch in 2015.
This first significant development from AXELOS’ Project and Programme Management (PPM) portfolio is about equipping seasoned PRINCE2 practitioners to tailor their management controls for an agile way of working while simultaneously assisting agile practitioners to better understand PRINCE2 governance requirements.
Two leading experts – agile consultant, Keith Richards of agileKRC and US-based Larry Cooper of BSSNexus Global Inc., are now involved in creating the new guidance and gathering feedback from the user community as well as our Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs), consulting organizations and academia.
Frances Scarff, Product Development Director at AXELOS said: “We believe the concepts in PRINCE2 and agile are complementary, mutually supportive and should be part of the skills toolkit for professionals responsible for both project management and agile delivery.”
