January 2015 – PEOPLECERT has been selected by AXELOS to deliver the new PRINCE2® Agile certification, the latest AXELOS initiative that will combine the best of PRINCE2 and Agile methods.
Expected to launch in Q2 2015, PRINCE2 Agile is being authored by agile guru Keith Richards from Agile KRC, who has been working alongside nominated mentor Larry Cooper of BSSNexus Global Inc. in North America to get his regional perspective.
PRINCE2 Agile will be offered as an extension to the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification and is expected to attract MSP® qualified programme managers, helping them understand not only how the programme relates to the projects, but also how projects relate to the delivery mechanism. The majority of the guidance and course material will be new to those familiar with PRINCE2, and will look at the interactions between the two approaches and how each needs to be adapted to accommodate the other.
This announcement strengthens PEOPLECERT’s position to serving the best practice community at the highest standards, playing integral part in delivering innovative solutions to the global market and reaffirms its commitment to offer all available exams in all available languages and all available formats, including Online Proctoring. ‘We are very excited to be delivering the new AXELOS PRINCE2® Agile certification, which will offer project management professionals an important new tool that will greatly contribute to their performance by combining the best of the two methodologies. Furthermore, we are pleased to support AXELOS in this initiative and look forward to expanding our partnership in other areas’, says Dimitris Nicolaides, PEOPLECERT’s Business Development Director.
