Press Release: AXELOS PRINCE2 Agile® Announcement

Press Release: AXELOS PRINCE2 Agile<sup>®</sup> Announcement

AXELOS is delighted to announce that the following Examination Institutes (EIs) have been selected to deliver the new AXELOS PRINCE2® Agile certification:

  • APMG,
  • BCS,
  • CSME,
  • EXIN,
  • Loyalist,
  • PEOPLECERT.

The latest AXELOS initiative - the first major product development from its project and programme management (PPM) portfolio - will seek to blend the best of PRINCE2 and agile methods in the PRINCE2 Agile best practice guide and qualification.

PRINCE2 Agile will form an integral part of the AXELOS Global Best Practice Portfolio alongside the PPM suite of products and ITIL®.

PRINCE2 Agile will be launched in the coming months and is being authored by agile guru Keith Richards from Agile KRC. Keith has been working alongside nominated mentor Larry Cooper of BSSNexus Global Inc. in North America to get his regional perspective.

This initiative fully supports AXELOS’ goal of growing the Best Practice community globally.

The PRINCE2 Agile product is being offered as an extension for those who already hold a PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. It will also be of interest for programme managers with MSP® who will need to understand not only how the programme relates to the projects, but also how projects relate to the delivery mechanism. The majority of the guidance and course material will be new to those familiar with PRINCE2, and will look at the interactions between the two approaches and how each needs to be adapted to accommodate the other.

AXELOS’ PRINCE2 Agile Best Practice and portfolio will launch in Q2 2015.
