525 Case Study 2 Success with Agile Project Management in General Dynamics


Case Study 2: Success with Agile Project Management in General

Read the case study on General Dynamics.

The Combat Identification Server (CIdS) Technology Demonstrator Project
(TDP) has been delivered on time, with quality and budget parameters using the
Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM). CIdS is a complex system and software
project. The objective is to help clear “the fog of war” by providing a picture
in the cockpit of an aircraft of the position of nearby friendly forces on the
ground. The selection of DSDM for the CIdS TDP was motivated by the Tactical
Datalinks Delivery Team’s (TDL DT) objective to demonstrate that complex
military technologies could be delivered without delay or cost overrun. The use
of DSDM was a bold move, but the CIdS project delivered successful outcomes for
all involved. In the current economic environment, delivering acceptable
solutions on time and at a fixed cost is surely a priority for the Ministry of
Defense (MoD). The success of the CIdS project has provided a good example for
the project management in the defense sector.
