DSDM Atern Practitioner — A 3 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


Atern is the agile project management framework from the DSDM Consortium.

The framework is the culmination of practitioners' experience drawn from a wide range of public and private sector projects for over a decade. This unparalleled expertise has resulted in a robust, but agile, approach that can be successfully applied across a variety of organisational and project contexts. Atern targets the root causes of project failure to ensure that time, quality and cost targets are always achievable. Atern will enable you to deliver the business goals - on-time and in-budget.

This course is evenly divided between the theory of DSDM Atern and the practical application of its techniques. An integrated case study is used to give delegates an opportunity to explore and experience these techniques. Delegates will receive the DSDM Atern Pocketbook and they can elect to take the DSDM Atern Foundation exam (accredited by APMG) at the end of the third day.
