For questions about the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) as defined by the Agile Business Consortium.

DSDM is a generic approach to project management and solution delivery, which is an iterative and incremental approach built upon the principles of agile development. It includes continuous involvement from users/customers. The main idea is that costs, quality, and time are fixed. Additionally, it prioritizes the scope by categorizing musts, shoulds, coulds, and won't haves, which are used to adjust the deliverables to meet time constraints.


DSDM was first released in 1994 as a way to provide some discipline to rapid application development, which was considered very unstructured. Many organizations just simply came up with their own process, as there was no agreed-upon standard.

DSDM is considered compatible with ISO 9000 and PRINCE2.

The method was revised in 2003 and became a standard in 2007. Much of the material from the 2003 revision is still in use today and is considered valid.
