How Agile and PRINCE2 Can Play Nicely Together

I'm involved in the "How PRINCE2 and Agile can play nicely together" presentation that will be given at the next Prince2 and Agile Meeting.

I'm really excited by this. Yes, excited.

I know you think that I'm nuts and yes, you're probably right, but this is one of the issues that faces Agile developers in a government department.

We have to appease the gods of process and control - that's where PRINCE2 comes in. Upper management love the way that they feel like they're in control.

And if we can convince them that Agile is not a dirty word and will work with a governance method like PRINCE2, then we may just be able to bring new concepts into the area.

That way, everyone's happy.

And that can only be a good thing.
