Virtual Training - One of the differentiators of the Disciplined Agile toolkit, compared to other frameworks, is that DA has always recognized fully distributed teams as one of the options that may be chosen from, or a reality of, how organizations are arranged.

Training and Coaching, both co-located (in person) as well as virtual live, have been part of our history since our beginning.

We are increasing our ability to deliver DA training and coaching sessions in a virtual live instruction format - with the practices and tooling that has been proven to deliver an engaging experience.

If you are uncertain that virtual live training can be effective and engaging, this webinar is for you and available to view on YouTube!
