Bookmark Table 3.6, Page 21, and refer to that when you want to answer questions about this topic.
- PRINCE2 Agile is Agile, while PRINCE2 is Waterfall.
- One should be stupid to use Waterfall! (true/false)
- What types of projects are compatible with PRINCE2 Agile?
- What is missing in Scrum?
- How does PRINCE2 Agile define Agile?
- “We’re not 100% Agile; we have a moderate degree of Agility.” Do you accept such a statement?
- One is either Agile, or Waterfall; there’s no third option. (true/false)
- PRINCE2 Agile tries to be Agile, but PRINCE2 is not exactly Waterfall; it’s neutral.
- Many Agile practitioners believe so, but I think predictive systems are great when they are used for the right project.
- PRINCE2 Agile claims that it’s not limited to IT development projects.
- Well, it doesn’t provide you with all the techniques and practices you need, and you have to add them yourself. Similar to PRINCE2: it’s not about techniques; it’s about the framework. PRINCE2 Agile believes that “Scrum does not contain project management and can be used on a project only for the delivery management”, which is not considered a correct statement for many.
- Simply as “something is Agile when we say so” ;) The actual definition is “Agile is a general family of behaviors, concepts, frameworks, and techniques that is widely accepted throughout the Agile community as being part of the Agile way of working.”
- It’s OK to consider Agility as a spectrum instead of a binary concept. However, when you hear statements like that, it usually comes from those who do not have a correct system.
- Both Agile and Waterfall are disciplined methods. There a third option of chaos, which is very popular ;)
