Agile project management

Our recommended framework for Agile project management and delivery is the DSDM Agile Project Framework, providing governance and rigour along with agility and flexibility. The framework can be used either stand-alone or combined with other recognised methods such as PRINCE2®, MSP and PMI. It is also ideal as a wrapper for more limited Agile approaches to ensure that the whole project lifecycle is addressed.

We are members of the Agile Business Consortium.
