PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation

PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation

What is PRINCE2 Agile?

PRINCE2 Agile combines the very different, but not uncomplementary, worlds of agile and PRINCE2. While PRINCE2 seeks to add structure and governance to projects, it doesn't have very much to say on how the teams are supposed to get the work done. Most 'agile' frameworks have an emphasis on developing empowered teams that can rapidly deliver high value outputs and outcomes but are less concerned with structure and governance. PRINCE2 Agile brings it all together in a thought provoking package and can be applied to any project and any industry.

PRINCE2 Agile is a fairly new addition to the Axelos Best Practice collection. However, demand for these courses are increasing exponentially as project managers, under pressure to deliver value quickly and reap the benefits of working with 'agile' teams, discover that they still need to impose structure and governance to the process.

Is this course for you?

If you are interested in harnessing the strengths of being 'agile' in a project environment then come on this course. It will be particularly interesting if your organisation has already been using a formal project management method like PRINCE2 but doesn't fully understand what it means to be agile. Or maybe it's the other way around; You might be using agile methods such as Scrum, Kanban or DevOps but need guidance on how it works in a heavily regulated or publicly funded organisation. This is not a course just for project managers. It is for anyone with an interest in projects; team members, project support, product owners and project sponsors. Many people are now choosing this qualification over the 'pure' PRINCE2.

The PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course is a 3 day introduction to both the world of project management and agile ways of working.

Candidates on this course will be given an introduction to the PRINCE2 processes, principles and themes. However, the main focus will on exploring what it means to be agile and how the team members, project manager and project board can work in a more agile way. As well as conventional teaching, there will be practical activities so that learners can practice a number of agile techniques.

The exam is a 60 minute multiple choice paper.

While pre-reading is recommended, the course assumes no previous knowledge or experience.


By the end of the course, all learners will have a better understanding of agile project management. They will have experienced what if feels like to work in an agile way and learnt some agile techniques to try out in their workplace.

PRINCE2 Agile Foundation is the first step to achieving PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner and most learners go on to complete that course too.
