Agile Project Management: From Scrum to Scaled Agile and Disciplined Agile (Virtual) - 210226

What is Agile Project Management?  Why is Agile Project Management becoming the chosen approach by innovative organizations in delivering high quality products to the market faster.

Agile Scrum methods work very effectively for innovative agile teams. Many organizations devise “hybrid” agile frameworks including Scrum practices plus additional agile practices that work for them.  What is Agile Scrum or hybrid Agile framework?

When the organization launches dozens or hundreds of agile teams throughout the enterprise, a majority of the business units of the enterprise need to operate in an Enterprise Agile environment.  The organization needs to scale up agile to improve the corporate performance and execute organizational strategy. 

In August 2019 PMI acquired Disciplined Agile. What is Disciplined Agile (DA)?  The DA toolkit is the world’s only comprehensive agile body of knowledge (BOK) that provides straightforward and practical guidance to help individuals, teams and organizations optimize their traditional or agile practices, customize any method or framework -- such as traditional, Scrum, or SAFe® – to drive outcomes that differentiate them from their competitors.

This seminar covers Agile Project Management as utilized by Scrum teams, as well as by Enterprise Agile teams, when there are dozens or hundreds of agile teams throughout the organization. Agile practices and methodologies are utilized to optimize individual team performance, as well as corporate performance and execute organizational strategy.  The Disciplined Agile toolkit will be introduced as a guide for continuous improvement of agile methods and practices and help participants in choosing their new (agile) way of working, customizing their agile methodology in order to optimize their organizational performance in executing organizational strategy.

Disciplined Agile comes with a certification roadmap for PMI members along with agile training to help project practitioners and PMI members attain and maintain the DA certifications.  This seminar will also cover DA training and certifications and why/how project professionals should create their own DA certification roadmap.  

In closing, the seminar describes the future of project management in an Agile world.

This seminar has been offered by the same instructor, Victoria S. Kumar, PMP, PMI-ACP, DASSM, CDAI, CSM, CSPO, ICP-ACC, SAFeAgilist for various PMI Chapter Professional Development Symposia.
