3.7 Beware of prejudice!

It would be understandable to think that bringing more control and governance into the agile domain could prove counter-productive. However, PRINCE2 Agile represents a marriage that is based on the opposite view – that control and governance allow agile to be used in more situations such as those involving multiple teams or complex environments.

A fighter aircraft is built with a deliberately unstable airframe. This instability gives it agility and allows it to change direction easily and adapt quickly to situations. However, to do this still requires control and governance!

This personifies PRINCE2 Agile.
