DSDM Atern has just 8 underlying principles. They are:
1) Focus on the Business Need
2) Deliver on Time
4) Never Compromise Quality
5) Build Incrementally from Firm Foundatioms
6) Develop Iteratively
7) Communicate Continuously and Clearly
8 ) Demonstrate Control
There is nothing in these that contradict the Agile Manifesto’s supporting principles, but they do offer a different focus. The next series of blog posts will talk about these principles, discussing what they mean, who is involved and how.
I hope thereby to demonstrate why I believe Atern to be a robust and disciplined Agile approach that provides distinct benefits over Scrum.
