Agile Development

Overview of DSDM - The RAD Method

Duration: 3 Day Accredited Practitioner Training Course
Venue: Centre for Software Engineering
Discount for Corporate Members


Many software systems are developed with respect to tight deadlines. These tight deadlines are determined by a need to respond to rapid changes in the market place. The rate of change in the business environment continues to increase to a level where existing development approaches and environments are unable to respond effectively.

One approach worthy of consideration is to apply a Rapid Application Development (RAD) method in a project. The Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM) is such a method. It recommends the application of a series of principles, which provide a fast and effective way to develop systems within limited deadlines and manpower resources. It has become very popular in the UK since it was first launched in January 1995. It is available in the public domain and is being considered the de facto standard for RAD. It is now in use in some organisations in Ireland, Europe, the USA and Australia.

DSDM is primarily a framework, or 'methodology' rather than a method populated with a full set of products/deliverables. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with a structured or in-house method, in which the detailed techniques of the existing method may be selectively applied to implement DSDM.

The Event
