19.5 Summary

A project manager controlling a project by stages is an important concept in PRINCE2 as it is part of management by exception and helps to ensure the ongoing viability of a project.

When using PRINCE2 in an agile environment the project manager should empower the delivery teams to deliver in the best way possible, by being collaborative with work assignment that is based around features and making full use of visual communication channels. Furthermore, the use of regular reviews and retrospectives along with setting the appropriate tolerances create an environment where creativity and responding to change exist in order to best address the customer’s needs.
