Agile Business: The Evolution of the DSDM Framework
There is mounting pressure on business organizations to solve problems faster, increase innovation (and thus change), and react more quickly to the unexpected –to be, in a word, agile. The DSDM (Dynamic Systems Development Method) consortium, one of the original signers of the agile manifesto, has seen its agile program management methodology successfully employed in the U.K. and Europe. Compatible with other methodologies such as SCRUM, it provides a comprehensive approach that blends agile methods with program and project management.
Today the consortium is evolving in response to the need for agility through the application of agile principles to general business situations. The new focus is not on software or projects, but on the whole of the organization. Driven by member realization that agile emphasizes strong collaboration between business and technical stakeholders, the consortium has expanded its influence towards delivering business value through agile techniques.
