What is Agile?
To stay effective, businesses need to be able to change quickly. However, the core
focus of traditional project management methodologies is to thoroughly understand the
reasons for change before the change can be enabled. In the real world, this approach
can be far too time-consuming.
Agile project management is a set of frameworks that covers the people, products and practices (techniques)
required to successfully implement projects. Agile is not only suitable for software/systems development it can
also be used to help manage any form of business change.

of the PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner level qualifications, AgilePM
certification is underpinned by DSDM Atern, whilst acknowledging the other popular
agile approaches around.

The good news for those who have laboured through PRINCE2 certification is that
your knowledge is not redundant. However, in the ever-moving need for new skills, the
logical next step in your life-long learning is in most cases Agile. Development teams
are already doing Agile and current PRINCE2 project managers are already becoming
