Preparing for the PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile exams

Blog: Good eLearning

PRINCE2, ‘PRojects IN Controlled Environments’, is the world’s most popular project management methodology. With a demonstrably effective process-based approach, it offers managers a firm level of control and organization throughout a project while at the same time helping teams maintain a focus on business goals, transparency, and continuous learning. PRINCE2 can also be adapted to suit individual projects and organizations, creating demand for practitioners in businesses all over the world.

PRINCE2 Agile combines PRINCE2 with Agile management. Originally a software development methodology, Agile has since been adapted to suit corporate projects that require a higher level of flexibility, along with more iterative benefits and team autonomy. In combining the two, AXELOS has created a methodology that capitalizes on two highly effective approaches to optimizing project returns.

Investing in training for PRINCE2/ PRINCE2 Agile, whether as an individual or part of a team, is an excellent way to incorporate world-class project management best practices into an organization. Becoming a practitioner can also help even experienced project managers to unlock more responsibilities and higher paying job roles.
