Why study this course

PRINCE2® is the most commonly used project management approach in the world today and is increasingly being used in conjunction with Agile practices. As more and more organisations adopt and embed Agile, the need for specific guidance on how to use PRINCE2 in the context of Agile has become important.

PRINCE2 and Agile each have their own strengths, and when combined they complement each other and create a holistic approach to managing projects in an Agile way. The strength of PRINCE2 lies in areas of project direction and project management, while Agile has a very strong focus on product delivery. Combining PRINCE2 and Agile delivers an integrated and seamless approach to managing and delivering modern projects.

PRINCE2 Agile® describes how to configure and tune PRINCE2 so that it can be used in the most effective way when combining it with Agile behaviours, concepts, frameworks, and techniques.

PRINCE2 Agile does not favour one Agile approach over any other, it engages with Agile in all of its many forms to provide a holistic project management approach that can be tailored to suit a wide variety of project conditions.

It is important that potential students for this course are currently certified in PRINCE2 Agile Foundation or any PRINCE2 certification, and secondly that they have a basic understanding of what Agile is, otherwise combining PRINCE2 and Agile together will not be effective. It is also important to note that PRINCE2 Agile is not a substitute for PRINCE2.

It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.


This course pricing includes a voucher for the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner Exam, which is an online proctored exam through PeopleCert. Practice exam papers are provided in the course, and reviewed to assist in preparation.

The exam is:

  • 2.5 hour scenario-based objective testing multiple-choice

  • 50 questions

  • Pass mark is 30 out of 50 (i.e. 60%)

  • Open book (PRINCE2 Agile official publication only)

After passing the exam, each student’s certificate will be made available to them via PeopleCert.

It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.

It is recommended you complete the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course and pass the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation exam before taking this Practitioner course.

Candidates can take the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam if they have one of the following certifications:

  • Project Management Professional (PMP®)

  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®)

  • IPMA Level A, B, C, or D

Proof of current certification will be required when booking.

Important note: If you have NOT previously undertaken the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course, then you will not have access to the official publication (eBook). We recommend you purchase a copy, via Lumify Work or your own means, PRIOR to course commencement.
