Controlling a Stage
It should be noted that PRINCE2 Agile stages, like PRINCE2 stages, are set based on the management perspective rather than the delivery perspective used in releases and increments. That’s why stages are not considered the same as any of those concepts.
A PRINCE2 Agile stage contains one or more releases, and each release contains one or more iterations (Sprints in Scrum).
Based on this arrangement, the Controlling a Stage process won’t have much differences with the original process.
- Progress information is more informal and pull-based; e.g., with Information Radiators or in the Review Meetings
- Controls are simpler and usually based on basic calculations on the backlogs
- The delivery level has relatively more authority in the Manage by Exception principle
- Many of the issues are raised in Daily Standups
Each Work Package would describe multiple releases and iterations, and would be broken down and elaborated into release plans and iteration plans based on the Agile framework in use at the delivery level.
