  • The requirements can be prioritised and there is confidence that cost and time commitments can be met by flexing the scope of what's delivered.
  • All members of the project team accept that requirements should only be defined at a high level in the early phases of the project and that detail will emerge as development progresses.
  • All members of the project team accept that change in requirements is inevitable and that it is only by embracing change that the right solution will be delivered.

  • It is possible for the business and solution development members of the Solution Development Team to work collaboratively throughout the project.
  • Empowerment of all members of the Solution Development Teaam is appropriate and sufficient to support the day-to-day decision-making needed to rapidly evolve the solution in short, focussed Timeboxes

  • The Solution Development team has the appropriate collective knowledge and skills (soft skills and technical skills) to collaboratively evolve an optimal business solution.
  • Solution Development Team members are allocated to the project at an appropriate and consistent level sufficient to fully support the DSDM timeboxing practice
  • Tools and collaborative working practices within the Solution Development Team are sufficient to allow effective Iterative Development of the solution.
  • All necessary review and testing activity is fully integrated within the Iterative Development practice.
  • Project progress is measured primarily through the incremental, demonstrable delivery of business value.
  • There are no mandatory standards or other constraints in place that will prevent the application of the DSDM Philosophy and Practices on this project.
