Being responsive to change is a must to survive in the modern business environment. The Waterfall model used in many traditional organisations cannot keep up, leading to missed deadlines and lower chance of project success. The Agile approach, on the other hand, is well known for its flexibility as well as its incremental and interative approach. Agile skills are vital for any project manager wishing to be able to keep up with modern project management.

Our Agile Training is inspired by successful agile business environments and provides two globally recognised Agile certifications: AgilePM® Foundation and AgilePM® Practitioner.

Which Agile methodology is best used in the industry?

Agile is executed in work environments using various methods. DSDM is one of the best approaches. DSDM stands for Dynamic Systems Development Method. DSDM was introduced in 1994 to deliver the industry standard project delivery structure. The main objective of DSDM is fast project execution. DSDM delivers the base to plan, manage, execute, and scale Agile processes.

The DSDM is based on nine principles that rotate around business values, rapid delivery, combined testing, and stakeholder collaboration. DSDM is considered suitable for business purpose, because 80% of systems can be organised in 20% of the time.

The requirement analysis is done at an earlier stage in the project. The development processes are made rescindable. The requirements are planned based on MoSCoW methods, which are:

  • M: must have requests
  • S: should have if all are possible
  • C: could have but not the critical ones
  • W: will not have now but may arise later

The critical work is made complete first. The lowest priority supplies are made out of implementation processes so the high priority requirements can be finished.

Business Agility:

Businesses need to rapidly respond to changes by familiarising the initial stable configuration. The business agility can be conserved by supporting and refining services and goods to accomplish customer demands. Agility is the capability to adjust to market and environments in an organisation, as agile provides complex adaptive systems and complexity science.

The difference between the Agile and Waterfall model:

  • In the waterfall model, the software process is divided into phases whereas the Agile methods divide the development of projects into sprints.
  • The waterfall model is fairly rigid whereas the Agile methodology is known for it's flexibility.
