DSDM Atern Awareness

Course Overview

The DSDM Atern Awareness course provides an introduction to DSDM Atern. It explores the benefits and risks of using this approach in comparison with more traditional waterfall approaches to solution development projects.

It will enable delegates to see the advantages of this approach for early delivery of business benefit. It also addresses the fact that many projects are evolutionary; results cannot be defined fully at the outset and the project must embrace change and manage this.

Atern is the latest version of DSDM, the proven Agile Project Delivery Framework. Atern works for projects of all types and helps to deliver results quickly and effectively.

It concentrates on strategic goals and incremental delivery of real business benefits while keeping control of cost, risk and quality. Business Agility is enabled through self-directed, empowered teams working together in a supportive and collaborative manner. Atern can be applied to a wide range of projects from small developments all the way up to full scale business process change.
