The DSDM Consortium, author and custodian of the world-leading DSDM Agile Framework, has announced a new identity and a major new Agile approach. The Agile Business Consortium unveiled its new name and look as it launched the Agile Business Change Framework, designed to support businesses and organisations in adopting Agile at any organisational level and on any scale.
Agile Business Consortium CEO Mary Henson said: “Some years ago, Agile became the mainstream approach to software and systems development and in those fields it’s now used more than any other approach. Increasingly, businesses recognise the benefits of adopting Agile methods in many different parts of the enterprise but struggle to understand how to enable it, implement it and ensure robust governance.
“The Agile Business Consortium has evolved to address those challenges and, particularly, to develop the Agile Business Change Framework – a new framework that will enable businesses and organisations to take an Agile approach wherever in the enterprise it’s needed and on whatever scale it’s needed.”
Building on more than 20 years’ experience in developing DSDM’s highly successful project management and programme management frameworks, the Agile Business Consortium has been developing the new Framework with selected partners and early adopters such as PwC, Tata Consulting and others. It will continue to build a community of like-minded partners to progress the Framework and will provide supportive training through a network of accredited organisations.
