PRINCE2 Agile® for PMO Practitioners

The Lean-Agile PMO one day course has been a great success and well received by PMO practitioners looking for guidance on how to support both traditional and Agile projects. The course goes deep into areas such as reporting; governance; planning; benefits management and risk – all those areas which are imperative to get right.

To support this course, we’re announcing today the addition of the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation Certification as a cost-effective way to increase your Agile knowledge and at the same time understanding how traditional (PRINCE2) and Agile fit together.

The course is available via eLearning and we’ve partnered up with Logical Model to make this cost-effective course available to you.

Why You Should Consider It

If you’ve not had the opportunity to gain some Agile related training yet – and don’t believe a full-blown Agile course is for you – take a look at PRINCE2 Agile Foundation.

The PRINCE2 Agile Foundation certificate is new for 2018 and we believe it has just the right amount of knowledge you’ll need as a PMO practitioner to gain the basics in Agile delivery approaches.

The course was recently piloted by Logical Model and feedback from the delegates is available for you to take a look at.

This sounds familiar from Claire:

One of my many challenges was in how to adapt my framework and methods to work with agile teams. While agile makes perfect sense for their work, I still need to manage the overall project and keep stakeholders abreast of progress as part of a larger project or programme being run with PRINCE2.

Another, from Shane, working in PMO:

Looking for a certification that complements practical experience”. PRINCE2 Agile Foundation merges PRINCE2’s governance strengths (facilitating leadership and sponsorship to guide and support development’s direction) with ‘agile’ insight. The result is agile’s pragmatism about avoiding bureaucracy, being delivery oriented and adaptive at the development level is integrated to PRINCE2’s ability to meet control needs at the investment level – As a PMO leader, Project or Programme Manager this is heaven-sent common-sense in a certified and auditable wrapper!

 

What’s Covered in PRINCE2 Agile Foundation?

The syllabus includes the following:

  1. The key concepts related to projects and PRINCE2 – that covers the principles; themes; processes; products and responsibilities of PRINCE2
  2. The key concepts related to projects and PRINCE2 Agile – including agile ways of working; ‘blend and weave’ PRINCE2 with Agile at all levels of a project and getting into the roles and responsibilities of the PRINCE2 Agile team.
  3. Understanding how the principles; themes; processes; products and responsibilities of PRINCE2 are tailored and applied in an agile environment
  4. Understanding the agile ways of working – the key terms and techniques – that’s things like backlogs, sprints, spikes, SCRUM, retrospectives and so on.
