 As you will see later in the newsletter, we’ve been doing a lot of great things here at Disciplined Agile Consortium these past few months!

We’ve written several new articles and blog postings that we believe you’ll find useful. 

We have updated the "Webinar"page with links to recordings and slidedecks from previous webinars. 

A "Book" page has been added to the DAC site where we’ve linked the two DAD books along with the translations which are currently available.

   Certified Disciplined Agile Partner Program
   
 
 

                                                                                                                                  

Many organizations around the world have selected Disciplined Agile as their standard agile/lean framework for implementation of their IT solutions.  The Certified Disciplined Agile Partner program provides service providers and educators an opportunity to demonstrate to these organizations that they have the required delivery skills, experience, and delivery capacity to meet the needs of these customers. 

There are two important pages we’d like to make you aware of:

  1. The Disciplined Agile partners page provides our current list of partners, each of whom have been vetted as good sources for Disciplined Agile coaches and instructors. Our list of partners is growing, please check back for Disciplined Agile Partners in your area!
  2. There are many options for a service organization to become a Disciplined Agile Partner.  Whether you are an Independent Consultant or large agile coaching company, we look forward to helping you to bring Disciplined Agile services to your customers.

Advisory Council
           


We welcome Jonathan Smart to the DAC Advisory Council 

Jon is currently leading on agile ways of working being the default approach to how we do what we do, across Barclays Group, with 140,000 colleagues. Our overall approach is based on Disciplined Agile. We believe it to be the largest agile transformation at this point in time. In the first year, we've gone from 4% to 40% of spend on change, being spent in an agile manner, with a holistic enterprise-wide approach (not just IT). This is approx. 750 teams working in an agile manner. 

Jon has 20+ years experience of taking and leading an agile approach to change in Financial Services, starting out as a developer on the trading floor. Most recently Jon was leading Derivatives Technology which had a large regulatory book of work (Dodd Frank) which was delivered with agile practices.
