After an extremely busy and successful summer, we are back with news on how Disciplined Agile is evolving, where you can meet up with other Disciplined Agile professionals and how our membership is growing.
We are extremely pleased to announce four new members accepted to the Disciplined Agile Advisory Council. We look forward to including their ideas based on their experience with DA as we continue to evolve:
Following the success of DADay2018, we launched a summer education series for Agile practitioners new to Disciplined Agile. DAConversations is a free online learning series focusing on different aspects of Disciplined Agile. All the resources are available to the public - thank you to those who engaged in our Q&A sessions.
Coming this fall is an education series for executives. The DA Boardroom focuses on providing executives the knowledge, resources and skills to expand the proven benefits of Disciplined Agile across the organization. Join us September 12th - and feel free to bring a guest.
Active Members - Have you been previewing and providing feedback on excerpts for our new book: Choose Your WOW! A Disciplined Agile Delivery Handbook for Optimizing Your Way of Working. Feedback closes soon. See our Sneak Previews!
Disciplined Agile continues to be industry’s fastest growing enterprise framework, made possible by your efforts to learn, get certified and implement DA in your organizations. This past spring, the results from The 12th Annual State of Agile SurveyTM by VersionOne stated "The scaling approach that saw the largest increase in reported use since last year is the Disciplined Agile Framework (DA) ..." We expect to gain an even greater presence in this year's survey, which is now running. Please take a few minutes to complete The 13th Annual State of Agile SurveyTM. If you use Disciplined Agile principles, please select DAD for the question on agile approaches and methods. Getting named as the most popular choice in the survey would be a great recognition for the collective efforts of our Disciplined Agile community.
