You have been working on one or more agile teams, very often taking a Scrum or Kanban-based approach, and for the most part you’ve had positive experiences. But you’ve run into a few challenges along the way and you realize that others have surely figured these things out. Challenges such as:
The Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit describes strategies to apply agile in enterprise-class settings. DA is a hybrid agile approach which combines strategies from a variety of sources – Scrum, XP, Agile Modeling, Kanban, and many others – and shows how they fit together in a pragmatic manner which reflects the realities of enterprise environments. DA provides coherent guidance for how to address many, if not all, of the challenges that you are struggling with. DA goes beyond the mainstream to take the mystery out of agile.
This workshop will be tailored to meet your needs. We begin with a brief overview of the fundamentals of Disciplined Agile (DA). Then the remainder of the workshop is run like an agile project. Workshop participants identify questions that they want to get answered about how to pragmatically apply agile strategies in the situations that they face. We then group these questions into topics. At that point we treat the topics as requirements for the workshop that we prioritize and then work through in an agile manner. This approach enables us to tailor a workshop that addresses your most pressing concerns.
