Why this seminar on PRINCE2® and Agile

Companies, organizations, teams, and individuals do want to implement a fit-for-purpose project management approach. Pretty soon they come into contact with frameworks such as PMBoK® and PRINCE2®. The overall feeling quickly goes towards “What a bureaucracy…!”. The switch to agile is almost simultaneously. And very often this means Scrum. A new feeling overwhelms: “Finally we can develop a solution!”. On the other hand, senior management starts thinking “What is happening…?”.
This seminar provides you with the link between the already well-recognized PRINCE2 framework and the agile world. After an introduction in both PRINCE2 and Scrum, an in-depth discussion takes place on the principles of both PRINCE2® and the Agile Manifesto and how both are applicable in both environments. Two project cases are discussed showing how the combination of PRINCE2 and Scrum worked in practice. And the seminar closes with some key success factors to use both frameworks in your projects.
It works! Really, it does!
