DSDM clinic problems and fixes


DSDM is a framework made up of 8 principles, a lifecycle, products, roles and responsibilities and several best practice techniques.

Often seen as Agile’s best kept secret, DSDM is one of the leading and fastest growing agile approaches, forming the basis of the AgilePM qualifications accredited by the APMG. AgilePM is currently its fastest growing Agile Project Management qualification and over 200,000 professionals were certified in AgilePM by 2023.

DSDM addresses the needs of both simple product development and more complex project situations.
