Question: With the addition of Disciplined Agile, we now have three types of approaches to how projects should be managed. But this means three times as many terms and roles to try to manage. In my company, different teams use different ways to organize their work, so inter-team communication becomes daunting. What is a good way to learn terms—and advice on how to use them correctly?

When writing Acceptance Tests, we respond to requirements and essentially turn them into scenarios that can be specified, tested, and then implemented. However, sometimes requirements are stated in a way that make the scenarios too large for effective testing and development. This webinar will investigate why this is, suggest techniques that can be used to decompose them into smaller scenarios, and demonstrate this using a real-world example of a complex business rule.
Advance Your Career
Acceptance Testing is a process by which requirements are collaboratively turned into actionable and testable scenarios, enabling development. Various skills are required to make it an effective proess, one of which is the identification and definition of Domain-Specific Language elements, or DSLs. This webinar will examine the importance of this process and will show examples of creating such definitions. The material presented requires no technical expertise.
Analysis skills are crucial to the success of any agile effort. For the team to deliver value to the organization the requirements given to them must be evaluated critically to ensure they are understood, that there is no missing information, and that the work of the team will be in completely alignment with organizational priorities. This webinar will teach a very powerful tool for accomplishing this analysis. A real-world example will be used to illustrate this way of working.
This blog contains details about various aspects of PMI's Disciplined Agile (DA) tool kit, including new and upcoming topics.
This blog concerns itself with organizations moving to business agility—the quick realization of value predictably and sustainably, and with high quality. It includes all aspects of this—from the business stakeholders through ops and support. Topics will be far-reaching but will mostly discuss FLEX, Flow, Lean-Thinking, Lean-Management, Theory of Constraints, Systems Thinking, Test-First and Agile.
This blog explores pragmatic agile and lean strategies for enterprise-class contexts.

Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) offers a comprehensive, knowledge-based approach to delivering agile projects that are operating in complex technical and enterprise environments. This case study shows how a retrospective analysis of a real-life project that was delivered for one of the UK’s largest retail banks uncovered real potential for process improvements.
Initially, there may not seem like much overlap between Disciplined Agile (DA) and the PMI Standard for Risk Management in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects. After all, DA promotes lightweight, agile-inspired guidance, and risk management information can be prescriptive and documentation-heavy. Yet, they are surprisingly aligned and compatible.
In any transformation effort, it is understood that resistance to change is the real enemy. Learn how the Disciplined Agile™ (DA) tool kit can support agile and digital transformation initiatives by optimizing processes in a context-sensitive manner and helping you choose your WoW (way of working).
As more organizations recognize (and research confirms) the high-performance benefits of empowering project teams, how do we balance the general value of standardized agile approaches with the greater need for teams to choose their ways of working?
We received so many questions during our Ask the Experts: Agile for the Rest of Us webinar that we didn’t have time to answer them all, so the presenters continue the conversation here!
Question: One of my team members told me yesterday that PMI is introducing a whole new series of certifications and moving to a more agile approach. How will my PMP® certification that I worked so hard to earn fit into this process? He said it is called DA, so I don’t really understand what this is about and what it will mean to me. Should I be learning this new approach?
Find the best Agile solution for your situation with Disciplined Agile™. This self-paced, online course shows you how to choose the right agile solution for your situation, and achieve a way of working that gets better results, faster. Because true business agility comes from freedom, not frameworks.
There can be significant value in planning, but it is possible to plan too much. Determining the right level should be based on a collection of factors such as the complexity and risk of the situation, the skills and experience of the people involved, and the uncertainty that you face.
How might efforts to "scale agile" and apply its self-organizing principles to the development of increasingly complex solutions impact the project management discipline? Two key challenges are identified: the purposeful avoidance of the project manager role and favoring stable, persistent teams over temporary organizations.
