DSDM Agile project management cheat sheet
Just over a year ago I was sitting in a classroom learning about and sitting two exams on DSDM Atern Agile project management.
Something that I wished had been available at the time was some kind of cheat sheet that broke down each of the DSDM phases (pre-project, feasibility, foundations, exploration, engineering, deployment, and post-project), indicated which products (usually documents) belonged to which phase, and who was involved in the creation of each product.
I couldn’t find anything suitable, so I created my own, pulling out all that information from appendix C of the DSDM Agile Project Management Handbook into a RACI matrix.
Over the last year I’ve found this to be a really useful resource. I have it printed out on A3 and stuck on the wall next to my desk; I refer to it a lot.
You’re welcome to use it and adapt it for your own needs: DSDM products and roles matrix (Excel .xslx, 15 KB)

Thank you, you are welcome. I certainly find it useful so I thought others might also.
Thanks for sharing this cheat sheet! I imagine having it nearby is really helpful, and I'm sure I'll get similar use out of it. It always helps to have a resource you can look to for reference during the day-to-day work.
Thanks for this; I was searching for something like this and - bingo! Very useful and thank you for sharing.
Thanks for this resource Gareth, it is undoubtedly going to be very useful to me!
Gareth, Thanks very useful and invaluable Thanks
Thank you sir, very useful. I have run multiple DSDM agile projects and now I am running an dsdm agile programme and this is handy - especially for people who know little to nothing about agile, let alone DSDM Agile.
Thank you very informative as I am just doing my DSDM class now
