Common Misconceptions About Prince2 Agile

Slide 2:

Anyone who is slightly familiar with Project Management must have heard of Prince2 , PMP , Agile , and other terminologies. Prince 2 Agile combines the organising framework of Prince 2 with the flexibility of Agile methodology. While Prince2 Agile is definitely proving to be helpful to many organisations, there are some common misconceptions around this project management practice. Here are a few myths that need to be busted.

Slide 3:

Prince2 is a traditional methodology like waterfall This misconception is probably promoted because Prince2 is a framework that breaks projects into stages, but this is where all the similarity with waterfall methodology ends. While waterfall encourages that a project should proceed in a certain fashion, Prince2 lets you choose your own way of implementation.

Slide 4:

Prince2 is only agile Many consider Prince2 Agile as just a buzzword that doesn’t have any importance attached to it, or that Prince2 Agile is simply just another way of presenting Agile. Both of these have been debunked by the success of Prince2. The strength of Prince2 is in the areas of project direction and project management, whereas Agile focuses on project delivery. Prince2 Agile is a blend of these disciplines.

Slide 5:

Prince2 Agile needs to have detailed plans This is a common misconception promoted due to the use of Prince2 framework. While Prince2 definitely helps in streamlining the project management process, it itself does not encourage detailed planning and fixed requirements. Prince2 Agile encourages flexibility in planning and execution.

Slide 6:

Prince2 Agile is only for IT Although originally made for IT, Prince2 Agile can be applied in any organisation where there are no rigid work methodologies and have varying customer requirements. Agile methods such as Lean startup , Kanban , and Scrum can be applied to any other environment as well.

Slide 7:

Agile is itself is a project management method In the context of DSDM/Agile PM, Agile is a project management method, but Prince2 Agile uses the Agile approach for delivery rather than project management. Prince2 Agile and Prince2 do not favour one agile approach over the other.

Slide 8:

Prince2 and Agile cannot function separately Agile exists even in businesses that do not have project based methodology. This is because Agile way of working governs the work appropriately, even without it being a project. However, if you are using Agile in the project management context, then it may be better to integrate it with Prince2 as the blend of these techniques will yield better results than the individual ones.

Slide 9:

We hope that this article helps clear any misconceptions you may have about these practices. Prince 2 Agile is a trending project management technique that many organisations are employing in order to leverage the structural firmness of Prince2 and the flexibility of agile principles.
