We’re proud to announce that Scott W Ambler is returning to London in February for three days of training and an evening meetup. Scott W Ambler is the co-founder of the popular framework, Disciplined Agile. To learn more about Disciplined Agile here or watch this video here.

Earlier this year, we held an “Introduction to DAD” course and meetup led by Scott. Since then, Scott Ambler and Mark Lines released Disciplined Agile 2.0, changing the name in the process because:

“Disciplined Agile Delivery” was no longer representative of the goal of the framework. “Disciplined Agile” is more accurate.

Disciplined Agile (DA) Training 2016

There are two excellent courses to take. If you’re new to DA and want to develop a firm understanding of the framework, then attend the Introduction to Disciplined Agile course.  This two-day course is suitable for all team members, including management tasked with moving from traditional approaches to agile.

You will learn to:

  • Avoid costly agile adoption mistakes by starting with a full delivery lifecycle
  • All aspects of software delivery – architecture, design, testing, programming, leadership, quality assurance, data administration – come together in a cohesive whole
  • Tailor your agile process to reflect the actual situation you find yourself in
  • Agile solution delivery techniques with hands-on exercises

If you have attended the Intro to DA course, then you can attend the Disciplined Agile MasterClass. We will tailor the workshop to your situation. We’ll run through a brainstorming session where you’ll identify questions that you want answered about how to apply agile strategies in the situations that you’re facing.

Disciplined Agile Business Analysis: Lessons from the Trenches

In this presentation we will discuss how disciplined agile teams address analysis activities throughout the lifecycle. The transition to agile requires a mindset, skill set, and very often role change for people who are currently business analysts.

On the majority of agile teams the role of business analyst has disappeared, but in some situations at scale the role is of vital importance – this isn’t your father’s software team any more.  Lessons learned from several organizations making the transition to agile will be shared.

Key learning points:

  • Discover how disciplined agile teams approach analysis, and modeling in general
  • Learn agile analysis and modeling strategies
  • Discover how business analysts can transition to an agile environment

Our meetups are always free but registration is required to attend. Don’t miss out – sign up here.
