Description

Regd. Education Provider

Disciplined Agile (DA) is an IT process decision framework for delivering sophisticated agile solutions in the enterprise. It builds on the existing proven practices from agile methods such as Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean software development, Unified Process, and Agile Modeling to include other aspects necessary for success in the enterprise. DAs fill in the gaps left by mainstream methods by providing guidance on how to effectively plan and kickstart complex projects as well as how to apply a full lifecycle approach, with lightweight milestones, effective metrics, and agile governance.

The workshop is not technical and is suitable for all team members. Many group exercises reinforce the principles learned. The workshop is also valuable for management tasked with moving from traditional approaches to agile.

  • Methods of avoiding incorrect Agile solutions that are both futile and costly
  • How to combine architecture, design, testing, programming, quality assurance, data administration and other aspects of software delivery for smooth execution

The Exam

The test is 25 multiple selection questions based solely on material from the DA 100 Series Courses and the DAD book. Attending our workshop will give you the training needed to pass the test.

  • Introduction to Disciplined Agile (DA): Overviews key DA concepts such as the four delivery lifecycles, enterprise awareness, team roles, being agile vs doing agile, the importance of context, and taking a flexible, goal-driven approach.
  • Agile Foundations: A brief overview of foundational agile and lean concepts such as the Agile Manifesto, the Disciplined Agile Manifesto, Kanban, Lean Software Development, and agile methods including Scrum, Extreme Programming, Agile Modeling, Agile Data, Unified Process, and others.
  • Forming DA Teams: Describes the roles and responsibilities on DA teams and team structures for small, medium, large, and geographically distributed teams.
  • Inception Phase: Covers key activities for initiating a DA team, including initial requirements modelling, initial architecture modelling, initial release planning, strategies for your physical and virtual work environments, initial risk identification, and driving to a shared vision with your stakeholders.
  • Construction Phase: Describes many technical strategies for building consumable increments of your solution, including test-driven development (TDD), acceptance TDD, how to initiate an iteration/sprint, look-ahead modelling and planning, spikes, regular coordination meetings, continuous integration, continuous deployment, whole-team testing, parallel independent testing, information radiators, Kanban boards, burn up charts, and many more. In this module we also look at agile construction from a traditional point of view, showing how activities such as architecture, analysis, design, testing, management, and user experience (UX) are addressed all the way through the lifecycle.
  • Transition Phase: Overviews strategies for releasing the solution to your stakeholders.
  • Simulation: A two-hour, hands-on simulation of a DA team using Lego.
  • Advanced topics: We examine critical topics such as strategies for adopting Disciplined Agile, how to govern disciplined agile teams, and how to scale agile at both the tactical and strategic levels.
