What PRINCE2® does not provide?

This freeware, non-commercial mind map (aligned with the newest version of PRINCE2® Agile) was carefully hand crafted with passion and love for learning and constant improvement as well for promotion the PRINCE2® Agile method and as a learning tool for candidates wanting to gain PRINCE2® Agile qualification. (please share, like and give feedback - your feedback and comments are my main motivation for further elaboration. THX!)

PRINCE2® Agile - an Agile extension to one of the most popular project management methodologies - PRINCE2®.

Agile fundamentals

Agile Manifesto

Agile Alliance

Agile currently is buzzword, a marketing term

The Agile Mindset, Values and Principles

Agile is a umbrella term enclosing different methodologies, tools, techniques, practices and frameworks

Plan-Driven Projects vs. Change-driven Project Projects

Agile is best for complex projects

Agile is about delivering "best possible value" not maximum possible value

Agile is about focusing on business value / outcome, not strictly project plan / output

Agile respects the urgency and importance of priorities conveyed by the customer / user, most prominently by incremental delivery and flexible sequencing

Agile respects the common sense that all requirements can not be known at the outset, particularly when the outcomes are intangible and subject to an evolving understanding.

Agile is about empowering people, treating them as intellectual individuals

Agile is about working closely and constantly (active two side collaboration) with customer throughout (including more than just feedback loops)

Agile is about change, constant change which leads to better value

Agile thinking / approach often requires mind change and cultural shift

Why Agile Works

PRINCE2® Agile Behaviours (5)



Rich communication



PRINCE2® Agile cake (a.k.a. layered cake)

PRINCE2® Agile cake represents the three levels of a project and the important point of the metaphor is that both PRINCE2® and agile have their strengths and we need to play to those strengths

PRINCE2® is kept on top

Agile at the bottom

The middle layer in between them is where the two actually mix

PRINCE2® Agile structure

PRINCE2® has the name to be waterfall method, but is in origin very agile:

Above classic PRINCE2 structire, PRINCE2 Agile touches (on different level of details):

PRINCE2® Agile Hexagon

Previous version of PRINCE2 varies time and cost whereas agile does not - therefore they could have been said in the past to be incompatible.

PRINCE2® Agile Agilometer

The task of Agilometer is to best estimate different areas of risk when applying Agile project management.

The Agilometer consists of six key areas to be used in the assessment of the application of agile within the project.

This Agliometer is comparable with the agile project questionnaire from DSDM® or AgilePM®.

The six key areas are:

PRINCE2® Agile Targets (5)

They introduce a way of thinking which, although common in agile, are perhaps not always at the forefront of more traditional project management approaches.

1. Be on time and hit deadlines

2. Protect the level of Quality

3. Embrace change

4. Keep teams stable

5. Accept that the customer doesn’t need everything

PRINCE2® Agile Guidance Points (8)

1. PRINCE2 (2009 version) is already enabled for use with Agile

2. PRINCE2 is suitable for any style of project and is not a 'traditional' project management approach as is typically contrasted to Agile

3. PRINCE2 Agile is for any project and not just for IT projects

4. IT only' frameworks and techniques are mentioned in PRINCE2 Agile but not extensively

5. There is much more to Agile than the Scrum framework. Agile is not Scrum

6. The most 'commonly used' Agile approaches are Scrum and Kanban, but they are not suitable for managing a project in isolation. However, they can be effectively used in a project context.

7. The term Agile (in this manual) refers to a family of behaviours, concepts, frameworks, and techniques

8. Using Agile on a project is not a question of 'yes or no'. It is about 'how much'
