What is AgilePM?
AgilePM is based on the well-known DSDM Agile Project Framework. The method aims to balance the standards and governance required for good project management, with the flexibility and adaptability provided by agile.
Features of AgilePM
AgilePM has many important features, including:
- It is a tried-and-tested approach, successfully adopted by a wide range of organisations across multiple industries
- Addresses the full project lifecycle, offering flexibility while retaining concepts key to effective project delivery and project management
- Assigns clear roles and responsibilities, advocating collaboration, open communication, and team empowerment
- Ensures solutions meet project objectives through strict acceptance criteria
- Incorporates agile tools to support effective solution development
- It can be easily integrated with existing processes such as PRINCE2 and ISO9001.
Advantages of AgilePM
The primary advantage that AgilePM and DSDM have over other methods is that while many other agile methods were designed for small projects and small teams, DSDM was designed to support larger projects with multiple teams. This allows AgilePM to scale organically without the addition of add-ons.
Not just a method
AgilePM is not just a project management method. It is also a certification scheme that helps project managers and aspiring project managers learn to effectively manage projects using modern tools, agile approaches, and best-practice management solutions.
