Detailed Training Program
Introduction to PRINCE2 Agile (including Hexagon)
The PRINCE2 Agile view: Optimisation of Project management solution
The 5 targets explaining the flexibility of PRINCE2 Agile:
- Be on time and hit the deadlines
- Ensure the required quality
- Embrace change
- Keep the team stable
- Accept that the user doesn’t need everything
Starting up and Initiating a Project
- (including Value Assessment and Cynefin Approach): build an overall understanding of the project while using the Cynefin approach, which consists in defining the level of uncertainty of the project. There are 5 levels: obvious, complicated, complex, chaotic, disorder.
Agile and the PRINCE2 Themes
Change (including the feedback loop).
- The more changes the better because it means the product is improving, but only if it is done rapidly and efficiently, which is why feedback is crucial.
Organisation (including the servant leadership).
- Each team member has a particular function aiming at working as efficiently as possible. The servant leader, who is the project manager, takes up the role of coordinator in order to facilitate the process.
Principles and Behaviours
- Transparency regarding the progress of the project
- Collaboration between the team members and stakeholders
- Rich Communication which favour consultation over email and visuals over text
- Self-organization to empower the project team
- Exploration, curiosity is privileged
Managing Project Delivery (including Scrum).
- This process is about accepting a work package, executing it and delivering it. It occurs between the project manager and the team managers.
- build an overall project plan in order to establish a planned end date. The plan will maintain the Agile approach, which does set time tolerance to zero.
- (including the definition of ‘Done’ which is basically a list of everything that should be done for each Product Backlog Item). The quality criteria are unified which simplify PRINCE2 Agile.
- Stage and Managing a Stage means gathering data and forecasting, day-to-day management to find out what has be done or not.
Directing a Project
- aims at ensuring that appropriate authority is given to initiate the project, deliver the project products, and close the project. The project board is accountable for the success of the project, it exercises control over key decisions made and delegate day-to-day management to the project manager.
Closing a Project
- evaluate the progress of the project with respect to the plan and the usage of Agile method.
Rich communication (including Workshops)
- face-to-face communication is the most effective one and workshops should replace unproductive meetings. Daily stand-ups facilitate the synchronization of team members.
Kanban and The Kanban Method which includes 6 general practices:
- Limit ‘Work in Progress’
- Manage the flow
- Making policies explicit
- Implement feedback loops
- Improve collaboratively, evolve experimentally
- Agile projects deliver increased ROI at shorter time intervals. When change happens faster and at lower cost and lower risk, projects are more likely to succeed beyond the set goals.
- Lower project costs, risks and issues with the proper risk management.
- Create more forward momentum and action by constantly validating milestones against business objectives.
- Agile-trained workers and project managers are able to complement existing corporate processes with faster, more responsive features. Quality checking, audit processes and other business functions are enhanced by Agile, creating transparency and improving company and team track records.
- Quick solutions through a tried-and-tested Agile approach for immediate turnaround.
- Work with existing budgets, time scales and scope no matter what stage with this incredibly dynamic project management approach.
- Increase professionalism, work ethic and work-life balance through structured tasks and intervals that can help workers perform better and produce more.
