An Agile approach to digital service delivery.


What is AgileDS®?

In our increasingly digital world, organizations across both private and public sectors are recognizing the need to develop and maintain effective digital services to support customers and citizens. AgileDS training and certification is based on the Agile Digital Services (AgileDS) Handbook, published by the Agile Business Consortium.

Offering practical advice and guidance, the Handbook enables organizations to develop a consistent approach, common language and skilled workforce for the successful design and delivery of digital services.




The Agile Business Consortium collaborated with APMG International to develop the AgileDS® handbook, as well as to produce supporting training courses and certifications.

AgileDS® Handbook

The Agile Digital Services Handbook has emerged from our work, bringing together valuable learning from the background and experience both of general agile approaches and that of GDS. It focuses on developing and continuously improving services using agile concepts and techniques.

The handbook will help organisations to develop a consistent agile approach, a common language and a skilled workforce (with appropriate accreditation opportunities) for the successful design and delivery of digital services, whether through evolving improvements or step-change transformations.
