PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner
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 a PRINCE2 Agile 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.
This course is particularly popular with learning coming from an industry where 'pure' PRINCE2 is dominant. It's also popular with agile practitioners who want more credibility in project situations. We see a lot of Scrum masters or Lean Six Sigma belt holders on this course but anyone with the prerequisites should do well.
The Practitioner course is a step up from Foundation and has a more challenging exam. As a result, it has more credibility in the workplace. If you're looking to sit the Foundation and Practitioner course and exams in one go, then our PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation & Practitioner Course might be better for you.

PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner course is a workshop that builds on the Foundation course. It gives learners an opportunity to revise the Foundation content through the practice of Practitioner exam questions and classroom discussion. It finishes with a 2.5 hour, scenario-based, multiple choice exam on the second day.
- Objective testing
- 50 questions each worth one mark
- 30 marks or more required to pass out of 50 questions: 60% pass mark
- Two-and-a-half hours’ (150 minutes) duration, no additional reading time
- Open book exam. Candidates may use the official printed hard copy of the PRINCE2 Agile® guidance. The guidance book may be annotated and tabulated but no sticky notes and loose leaf papers containing additional notes will be allowed.
Officially, either the PRINCE2 or PRINCE2 Agile Foundation certificates are prerequisites for the Practitioner exam. However, if you have the 'pure' PRINCE2 Foundation qualification but are are completely new to agile ways of working then we recommend that you sit the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course first in order to learn what it means to be 'agile'.
On successfully completing the course, you should have the confidence to apply agile tools and techniques to your next project.
Once you have the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner under your belt then it may be time to look at MSP.
