  • Background: DSDM & AgilePM
  • AgilePM® Agile Project Management™ is based on DSDM Atern – DSDM - The oldest established Agile approach (1995) – Owned by The DSDM Consortium (A not-for-profit organization) – Established and proven integration between *DSDM®Atern® and **PRINCE2® *DSDM and Atern are Registered Trade Marks of DSDL Limited in the United Kingdom and other countries ** PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries. DSDM Atern Agile Unified Process (AUP) Scrum Lean Extreme Programming (XP) Lightweight Approaches Fuller Approaches (but still agile)
  • What is Agile? A style of working – Flexibility – Working closely with customer throughout – Ensuring final solution actually meets business need – Deferring decisions about detail as late as possible People and Interactions over Processes and Tools Working Software over Comprehensive Documentation Customer Collaboration over Contract Negotiation Responding to Change over Following a Plan Agile was born with The “Agile Manifesto” (2002) Today we would say: Working solutions
  • DSDM Basics
  • Agile vs Traditional DSDM Atern has a new approach Examples • Waterfall project • IT V-model • Specification-driven project
  • MoSCoW Prioritization 13 Minimum Useable Subset Out of Scope for this timeframe Must Have Should Have Could Have Won’t have this time Guaranteed Expected Possibly Maybe next time
  • Timeboxes provide control
  • Quick Poll 2
  • New ways to add value
  • • Specification driven (BDUF = Big Design Up-Front) • Development is monolithic (non-iterative) • Deployment is near the end of the project • Benefits arrive after the project Traditional V-model Benefits Specification Analysis Unit TestDesign Build Integration Test User test Project Lifecycle Deploy
  • Agile prefers “Working Solutions” Iterative development builds a value stream Iterative development = converging towards a working solution  Early timeboxes may only deliver models or rough prototypes  Later timeboxes deliver working solutions with increasing functionality
  • Agile prefers “Working Solutions” Incremental deployment delivers value Early and incremental deployment means early benefits Feedback from use speeds the convergence toward final working solution Benefits
  • AgilePM: an enterprise tool
  • AgilePM Roles and Responsibilities • One person can have more than 1 role • A role can be shared between people • Project roles – Managing, directing, co-ordinating • Solution Development Team (SDT) – Creating the Solution Business Solution Project Mgt
  • DSDM Atern Lifecycle Products • Foundations = EDUF (Enough design up front) • Flexibility: Not all products required for every project
  • Delivering the Business Case 23
  • AgilePM Discover requirements, improve estimates – Initial FEW requirements, with LOW detail – Initial Estimates are APPROXIMATE – they improve as project advances
