Course Overview


In our competitive global economy, time-to-market for a new product or service is crucial to success, change seems to be unavoidable due to market, technology and other reasons. More and more world's Fortune 500 companies are turning to Agile for a more effective project management methodology that embrace change, always meet customer expectations.  The Agile methodology is no longer reserved for software or IT development but can be applied to most industries to achieve the benefits of Agile.  

DSDM is the longest-established Agile method, launched in 1995, and is the only Agile method to focus on the management of Agile projects. The method has evolved over the years and DSDM Atern is the latest version. DSDM has consistently demonstrated its ability to successfully work with and complement existing corporate processes.


Course Objectives

To give delegates a practical understanding of Agile Project Management which is based on the internationally recognized framework of DSDM Atern. This will enable delegates to become immediately productive as a project manager in an agile project environment. This course will also highlight the difference between simple lightweight agile approaches which typically operate at the solution delivery (or 'work package') level and the greater holistic view of how multiple work streams are coordinated with the appropriate level of governance and control. The course will also prepare delegates for the Foundation exam.


This course will benefit anyone with an interest in recognizing the benefits of using Agile with PMI, PRINCE2 or traditional Project Management. Attendees will include Project Managers and team members from both Agile and traditional projects, Project Sponsors and other Project Board members, Project Assurance and Project Support staff and those responsible for delivering the products.
