TITLE: 5 Ways PRINCE2 can be Agile

ABOUT THE ARTICLE: “AGILE” seems to be the word of the moment in project management, just like if a miraculous way of keeping control of project has been suddenly invented. But AGILE practices started in the 1990 and at present there are about 13 agile approaches used in project management. PRINCE2 Project Management offers the double advantage to support of a full project lifecycle -from the emergence of an idea (pre-projet) to the benefits assessment (post project)- while also providing an agile framework for any type of project. How? How can PRINCE2 be also used in an Agile way? The expert trainer and consultant Antoine Breton gives the answer in this article he wrote for QRP, in which he identifies 5 elements of PRINCE2 that prove its in-featured agility:

  1. the agile “Project Product Description”,
  2. the appropriate use of the “Change” theme,
  3. the use of workshop practices and daily stand-ups meeting,
  4. the iterative development and incremental delivery,
  5. planning, the backbone of the project.
