City of London, June 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — City of London, England –
Knowledge Train has announced the launch of its PRINCE2 Agile online certification courses at Foundation and Practitioner levels. PRINCE2 Agile forms both professional guidance and a PeopleCert certification system. It offers guidance on combining PRINCE2 (a project management methodology) with Agile methods and frameworks. Combined, the PRINCE2 Agile online training courses offer a powerful way to manage Agile projects.
Agile is a set of values and principles that are generally applied to the field of software development, although they have also found use in other industries. Agile practice draws the best and most applicable lessons from several lightweight software development frameworks such as Rapid Application Development (RAD), Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Feature Driven Development (FDD) , etc. The fundamentals of the methodology were solidified in a document called “Manifesto for Agile Software Development” which was created in 2001. Since then, due to the increase in productivity that the method offers to software developers and its ability to get an MVP off the ground faster than the old monolithic software development methods (such as the waterfall method), it has gained a lot of ground in the field of software development and its proponents swear by its benefits.
The Agile methodology is based on four core values - people and interactions rather than processes and tools; working software on full documentation; the collaboration of the client on the negotiation of the contract; and respond to change with a plan. These values translate into 12 principles that ensure that project progress is incremental and iterative. Today, Agile methodologies have been adapted to several software development frameworks such as Scrum, Lean Startup, Kanban, Agile Unified Process, etc.
Although these guiding values seem self-evident, the process that must be followed to achieve this result is difficult to implement and effectively imitate without prior practical experience or dedicated training. Professional practitioners of Agile methodologies are in high demand as newly founded startups, as well as established software service providers, recognize the value of Agile-based methodologies on their business’s ability to deliver quality products faster and improve performance. overall result of the company. LinkedIn even ranked Scrum Master among the most promising jobs of 2019.
Knowledge Train’s PRINCE2 Agile online training courses are accredited by PeopleCert, a global leader in professional skills assessment and certification, which partners with multinational organizations. PRINCE2 is a software development methodology that predates the Agile Manifesto. The PRINCE2 Agile course combines PRINCE2 with Agile to create a more powerful approach that provides the flexibility of Agile while retaining the authority, strength and governance of PRINCE2. The course is perfect for program managers, project managers, project support staff, those with project governance responsibilities and students who already hold one of these qualifications: PRINCE2 Foundation, PRINCE2 Agile Foundation , Project Management Professional® (PMP)*, Certified Associate in Project Management® (CAPM), and IPMA Levels A, B, C and D® (Certified Projects Director). Students can opt for the Foundation and Practitioner course or one of the courses on their own.
