About

AgilePM® (Agile Project Management) is an internationally recognized methodology for agile project management (over 170,000 certified practitioners worldwide), particularly esteemed in the UK.

The DSDM process (on which AgilePM is based)

DSDM/AgilePM process
Terms of Reference – High-level definition of the over-arching business driver for, and top-level objectives of, the project. ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
Business Case – Describes essential business considerations that justify the project, and then are used to assess the viability of the project moving forwards.
Prioritised Requirements List (PRL) – Describes, at a high level, the requirements that the project needs to address if the Business Case is to be met. Simlar to the Scrum’s Product Backlog (but not identical).
Solution Architecture Definition (SAD) – Provides an overview and architectural framework for both business and technical aspects of the potential solution. This will evolve as the project proceeds.
Development Approach Definition (DAD) – Defines how the SDT will develop and how they, and associated technical experts and stakeholders, will assess the fitness for purpose of the solution as it evolves against business and technical acceptance criteria.
Delivery Plan – Provides an initial high-level schedule of Increments and Timeboxes and other activities for development, testing and deployment of the solution. Simlar to the Roadmap concept.
Management Approach Definition (MAD) – The Management Approach Definition (MAD) product describes essential governance and organisational aspects of the project and describes precisely how the project will be managed.
Feasibility Assessment – Provides a snapshot of the evolving business, solution and management products described above as they exist at the end of the Feasibility phase. ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
Foundations Summary – Provides a snapshot of the evolving business, solution and management products described above as they exist at the end of the Foundations phase. ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
Timebox Plan – Elaborates on the objectives provided for each Development Timebox in the Delivery Plan. Simlar to the Scrum’s Sprint Backlog concept (but not identical).
Timebox Review Record – This is a running review of what has been achieved, feedback, outstanding issues and key decisions and could be constructed to be used for auditing purposes if necessary. ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
Project Review Report – Consists of 3 components: 1. End of Project Assessment 2. Benefits Enablement Summary (one or more) 3. Increment Review (one or more). ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
Benefits Assessment – Describes how the benefits have actually accrued, as the Deployed Solution has been used. ‘G’ for Governance – a milestone products are created within a phase and typically fulfill a specific purpose within that phasephase, serving as a checkpoint or to facilitate governance processes.
