Scrum is the most popular agile method used today. Many agilists wrongly believe that Scrum is a project management method. It is not.
Scrum is a development method used to help teams iteratively develop software, although Scrum has increasingly been used to deliver many more types of products than software.
Delivery methods such as Scrum lack a core project management capability. Scrum does not address what comes before or after a project. It only focuses on what happens during a project. Decisions about whether to invest in project is lacking from Scrum.
That is why in recent years there has been an increasing desire to find methods that can be applied to the management of agile projects. One such method is DSDM.
DSDM is one of the earliest and best-known agile methods and was a signatory to the Agile Manifesto. DSDM is a proven, best-practice agile approach for managing projects and covers the entire project life cycle. DSDM is fully scalable for use on projects of any size and type.
DSDM differs from all other agile methods (including Scrum) because it integrates project management and product development into a single process. Many organisations just use DSDM, although some gain value from integrating DSDM with approaches such as PRINCE2.
Agile Project Management is built upon DSDM. Therefore, with Agile Project Management you are getting a full project management method specifically designed to manage both agile projects and agile delivery. With Scrum, you are only getting a method for agile delivery.
Deciding whether AgilePM or PRINCE2 Agile is best can be tricky. Some people get confused when choosing between an Agile Project Management (AgilePM) course, or a PRINCE2 Agile course.
The simple advice is this. If you have already passed a PRINCE2 exam, then choose a PRINCE2 Agile course.
If you don’t already have a PRINCE2 qualification, then take an Agile Project Management course.
