There are a number of frameworks that have been used for agile development and project management. The purpose of this assignment is to discuss how projects are planned and executed in SCRUM, Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM), and Lean Software Development. Using real-world examples in your assignment is highly desired. One way to do that is to relate any projects at your workplace or from your research and think about how you, as a project manager, would run the same project under those frameworks.

Write a five to six (5-6) page paper in which you:

  1. Analyze the manner in which projects are planned and executed under the following frameworks and provide one (1) example for each:
    1. SCRUM
    2. DSDM
    3. Lean Software Development
  2. Highlight three (3) benefits and three (3) trade-offs for each of the following frameworks:
    1. SCRUM
    2. DSDM
    3. Lean Software Development
  3. Determine the potential obstacles for using the following frameworks and analyze the major risks and issues associated with each of them.
    1. SCRUM
    2. DSDM
    3. Lean Software Development
  4. Suggest key strategies from the perspective of a project manager to avoid the obstacles you have identified in Question 3. Recommend key actions that you can take in order to mitigate the risks associated with those frameworks. Provide three (3) real-world examples to support your suggestion.
  5. Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. You may use the resources above or others of your choosing.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
