Description

The hands-on guide that you need to successfully deliver your projects within the PRINCE2 Agile framework

PRINCE2 Agile: An Implementation Pocket Guide explains how the structured, management-driven PRINCE2 project governance framework is able to work cohesively with team-driven, quality-focused, responsive Agile methods. It provides a clear explanation of how these two approaches combine to provide the governance, due diligence and accountability that senior management requires, as well as the responsiveness and flexibility that project delivery teams need in order to do their jobs most effectively.

PRINCE2 Agile: An Implementation Pocket Guide supplements the official AXELOS PRINCE2 Agile guide, giving you step-by-step advice for implementing PRINCE2 Agile for every project type in your organisation . It is as valuable for established PRINCE2 organisations as it is for organisations with no formal governance structure; as relevant for organisations that deliver traditional waterfall projects as it is for those experienced in Agile methods. The guide also includes targeted questions and customised guidance to align with the specific needs of your organisation and your projects.

 

Product overview

PRINCE2 Agile: An Implementation Pocket Guide explains the PRINCE2 Agile framework in practical terms with project-specific guidance on how to implement it – especially valuable for those who need a readily available reference source to supplement the official PRINCE2 Agile guide.

This book addresses a range of implementation scenarios, including:

  • PRINCE2 organisations that want to implement PRINCE2 Agile to get the benefits of Agile methods in their existing governance framework.
  • PRINCE2 organisations that want to merge their current Agile project work into the combined PRINCE2 Agile framework.
  • PRINCE2 organisations that want to transition the next stage of their existing waterfall projects into the combined PRINCE2 Agile framework.
  • Organisations with no existing governance structure or project delivery method that want to implement PRINCE2 Agile as an integrated governance and project delivery framework.
  • Organisations that currently use Agile methods with no governance framework and want to implement PRINCE2 Agile to provide greater alignment between their Agile work and corporate objectives.

Most importantly, PRINCE2 Agile: An Implementation Pocket Guide adheres to one of the core principles of PRINCE2 Agile by providing flexible options in each scenario to allow you to implement the processes, tools and structures that are best suited to the specific needs of your project and your organisation.

In terms of the manuscript I would say that it is very good. I hadn’t realised it was by Jamie Lynn and immediately felt in good hands when I did. Her writing is always extremely direct, at a high level of clarity and bursting with good information. This is no exception and I found it very informative. This book could be used as a cover-to-cover guide or a reference manual with equal success. I particularly liked the sections on moving from a current mindset to a new one. So many of these publications suggest ‘start again’ or ‘if you didn’t use this you are already doomed’ whereas Jamie has deployed her usual practical style to great effect. I would have no hesitation in recommending this and feel sure it will do extremely well when published

This book provides practical advice on how to adopt – and adapt – the PRINCE2 Agile approach to the needs of your organization’s project – whatever its size or complexity. Many of the suggestions in this book can equally be applied to existing PRINCE2 organizations and to those without formal governance structures, to organizations who have delivered traditional waterfall projects as well as those experienced in Agile methods. I will be adding the guide to my toolkit and would urge you to do so also.
