Question: I have barely recovered from switching to agile, and now there is a new approach to projects: WoW, or “Ways of Working.” Is this really an advantage, or is this just another way to keep us constantly disrupted in the way we do projects? With all of the confusion and turmoil brought about by the pandemic, do we really need yet another change in the way we do projects?

The way we perceive the world around us can limit our view of what is possible and impossible. If we believe something cannot be done, then we cease to seek ways to do it, and in many cases, this means we make tradeoffs that are unnecessary and even destructive. To become effectively agile, one must learn to overcome this limitation, to see what is possible, and to act in alignment with value. This presentation will demonstrate how this can be done with multiple examples.
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.
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.

In the latest in our Conversations on Citizen Development series, Sam Sibley explores citizen development with Scott Ambler.
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.
