Disciplined Agile (DA) is a process-decision toolkit that provides guidance to help people, teams, and organizations streamline their processes in a context-sensitive manner, providing a solid foundation for business agility.  Two of the seven principles of Disciplined Agile are Context and Choice. This implies

that based on the context of the work effort (project, team, or skill set etc.) the team should be able to choose the best workflow to apply to this effort. The DA structure uses an iteration goal to make this workflow choice. Now these workflows can vary from accepted methodologies like SCRUM or Kanban to

organization specific workflows that fit  your specific circumstances. This presentation will provide a high level overview of Disciplined Agile and how it might impact your

organization and your career. The presentation includes:

1) Disciplined Agile and PMI – What’s happening and what does it mean?

2) The layers of Disciplined Agile

3) Disciplined Agile as a tool to help make your organization more agile?

4) You can still use your existing tools and methodology in DA

5) Certifications – Disciplined Agile and Your Career (and the ACP is not going away)

Disciplined Agile is a disruptor in the marketplace. As PMI gives more involved in transformation to agile

organizations, DA’s layers will be at the core of the PMI toolset.
