PRINCE2 Agile® Guidance

Book By Keith Richards

5CPD Points

Due to the impact of the coronavirus, from 13 April to 30 September 2020 individuals are now permitted to print PDFs for exams and use PDFs or official e-books on a second e-device (portable digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops) during open book exams.

The PRINCE2 Agile guide supports the PRINCE2 Agile certification. PRINCE2 Agile is the most up-to-date and relevant view of agile project management methodologies and the only framework covering a wide range of agile concepts, including SCRUM, Kanban, and Lean Startup.

Key features:

PRINCE2 Agile provides guidance on tailoring PRINCE2 in an agile context and covers:

The strength of PRINCE2 lies in the areas of project direction and project management whereas agile has a very strong focus on product delivery. When PRINCE2 and agile are combined, project direction, project management and project delivery are all optimized to create the world's most complete project management solution.

The third impression of the first edition of PRINCE2 Agile reflects changes made to the 2017 update to Managing Successful Projects to PRINCE2 and the 2018 revision of Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®. AXELOS has taken advantage of these changes to correct some minor errors to the agile elements of the text.

In addition. Appendix H has been entirely replaced with the latest version of ‘The Definitive Guide to Scrum’. The scope of change is quite limited and there are no structural changes. The style of the guide has been updated to the current AXELOS standard.

In studying for the PRINCE2 agile practitioner certificate in Agile project management, I identified a number of improvement areas in the manual which I have shared directly with the author, Keith Richards.

Reading the PRINCE2 Agile book alongside webinars on Agile practices has educated me regarding the definition and application of the Agile project management workflow. I feel ready to use what I learnt within my current role.

The agile guidance has been carefully thought and presented in-depth for all PRINCE2 themes and processes. My familiarity with PRINCE2 helped me understand the well structured and flexible agile specific views, guidance, concepts, behaviors and techniques. The additional information about Scrum, Cynefin, Lean startup and Kanban are valuable. An excellent list of references in each chapter for further reading. The layouts make it visually appealing to read.

Reading the guidance as part of a 3 day training course was most valuable in confirming definitions and structures. There is a significant amount of duplication.

After studing Prince2 Agile I am in better position to find the right mix using Prince2
Thomas Heinen 29 April 2019
I've been using Scrum and Lean for 10 years and needed guidance on how to combine the approaches. New techniques like the Behaviour Dashboard or the Agilometer for monitoring the values bridge a gap between the two seemingly contradictory approaches. Having the book follow the PRINCE2 themes and mapping/combining it with the agile concepts helped a lot to match the approaches.

... and the bit of humor in the guide was great (referencing e.g. "the Pastor of Fun is not an official role" remark).

It is especially good to not only reference Scrum but have flow-oriented approaches like Kanban integrated in the guide. I found the inclusion of Lean Startup a bit exotic, as I've just came across other Lean books so far, but that might be just me.

Still pondering to go for the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam, as I have lots of Agile-inspired projects on my plate.

I have a good understanding on how Agile can be tailored to a project, especially Prince2 project. The guidance book has also addressed my concern that Agile is not suitable for projects due to its lack of proper authorisation and control.

Worthwhile updating your PRINCE2 knowledge with a new way of thinking.
Fiona Osborne 1 June 2020
This hybrid approach takes the best of Agile and the best of PRINCE2 to deliver an extremely adaptable project management approach for any project or organisation.
Lena Stupchak 29 July 2020
The book is really useful for the projects and the examination. The information is perfectly organized and explained.
Jeremy Iredale 8 September 2020
Happy to say that with the help of the book, I successfully passed my Practitioner exam with an 80% pass mark.

I have taken a course to get my Prince2 Agile Practitioner certificate where this information material was used. I have read the entire book several times and gained lots of knowledge from it.
