Speaker: Beth Ouellette, The Ouellette Group

Disciplined Agile is the topic of many conversations across the Agile and PMI Communities. We hear these kinds of questions: Why did PMI add it to their product portfolio? What is Disciplined Agile?  What is the value of Disciplined Agile to Chapter Members? How can you bring value to your team/organization with Disciplined Agile? How do I get started? What is possible for your personal and chapter roadmap? We have even seen presentations and are still mystified by DA.

Join us to hear Beth Ouellette share answers to all these questions and more. She will guide us through key components of Disciplined Agile as she shares practical applications, analogies and stories to connect the dots. She will endeavor to “simplify” rather than “mystify” what DA is and why it is of value to you.  She will even share the roadmap she used for her DA journey that you could leverage too.  Though it is only an hour, we hope to gain a clear understanding of the potential of Disciplined agile for individuals, our members, and our community. You may even discover that you already apply a Disciplined Agile “Way of Working” today!
