Agile Project Management: Integrating DSDM Atern into an existing PRINCE2® Environment


The purpose of this White Paper

Since the turn of the century there has been a dramatic rise in projects using ‘agile’ techniques and approaches. This started in the IT sector but is now seen throughout the project management arena. Many organizations are employing agile disciplines at programme level, as well as at ‘the coal face’, as the popularity of this approach continues to grow.

The purpose of this White Paper is to describe the benefits of running PRINCE2® in tandem with DSDM in order to help an organization to quickly establish or enable its own agile capability.

Importantly, it also outlines how this combination is one of the best and safest ways to implement an agile approach, which many organizations fail to do correctly.

Primarily, this White Paper has been written for people who are currently working in a PRINCE2 environment and would like the option of executing some or all of their projects in a more agile way. However, the paper will also be of benefit to any organization which is looking to replace or upgrade its own project management approach or ‘body of knowledge’ (e.g. PMBOK®), and which regards this topic as current best practice.

The White Paper covers the rationale for this combination, the mechanics of combining PRINCE2 and DSDM, and a summary of the most significant concepts to get right.

This document supersedes a similar paper which was published in 2010.
