Since its launch in 2010, Agile Business Consortium's Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) has proved very popular, and has enabled the adoption of agile project management practice worldwide.

DSDM’s agile project framework reflects the very latest thinking in corporate-strength agile and has been designed to link more easily with other agile approaches. 

Agile project management offers flexibility while still recognising the processes that gave project managers the confidence to run their projects effectively. 

The eight principles are at the heart of DSDM. These eight principles support the DSDM philosophy:

“best business value emerges when projects are aligned to clear business goals, deliver frequently and involve the collaboration of motivated and empower people”.

Agile Project Management comes to life by all these principles:

  1. Focus on business need
  2. Delivery on time
  3. Collaborate
  4. Never compromise quality
  5. Build incrementally from firm foundations
  6. Develop iteratively
  7. Communicate continuously and clearly
  8. Demonstrate control

Compromising any of the principles undermines the philosophy of DSDM and introduces risk to the successful outcome of the project being executed using Agile Project Management (AgilePM).
