Event Synopsis:

“There is a common perception that PRINCE2 is bureaucratic and heavyweight. There is another perception that PRINCE2 cannot be agile, but is this all true?

Many people may be surprised to hear that PRINCE2 can provide an excellent launch pad from which Agile concepts, behaviours and techniques can be set in motion. This session will not only dispel many of the myths about PRINCE2 but also those myths associated with Agile and the hype currently surrounding it. It will look at what needs to change in PRINCE2 to 'go agile' and what needs to stay as it is in order to stay in control with the appropriate level of rigour.

Whether you are an experienced hand in Agile or PRINCE2, or just a beginner, this presentation aims to challenge your thinking and help you take your PRINCE2 and your agile to a new level of performance.”
