3.4 Course of action for each community in each situation

Table 3.3 outlines the most appropriate course of action that the communities listed in Table 3.1 would need to take in terms of using PRINCE2 Agile, when faced with the situations described in Table 3.2.

Community Situation
Agile is not used for projects, or is at a basic level Agile is used for BAU A mature level of agile is used for projects and BAU

PRINCE2 wanting to go agile, or encountering, or practising agile

Use PRINCE2 Agile.

Should some of the BAU work be handled as a project? If so, use PRINCE2 Agile for this.

Potentially, PRINCE2 Agile may be of use, although the existing agile process may suffice.

See note 1.

Agile wanting to adopt PRINCE2

Use PRINCE2 Agile.

Should some of the BAU work be handled as a project? If so, use PRINCE2 Agile for this.

Potentially PRINCE2 Agile may be of use although the existing agile process may suffice.

See note 2.

Notes:

1. Mapping of similar terms may be of benefit (e.g. product board may be an equivalent to project sponsor).

2. A situation where a mature level of agile is used for projects may potentially benefit from using PRINCE2 Agile, unless it is felt that the existing governance and project management controls are sufficient. Using PRINCE2 Agile may be appropriate if a more challenging piece of work is being undertaken or a project involves a customer, supplier or another part of the organization that is using PRINCE2 or PRINCE2 Agile. In any of these cases PRINCE2 Agile could be adopted, or similar terms could be mapped between the different approaches.
