Disciplined Agile (DA)

Training and Development: Disciplined Agile

What is Disciplined Agile?

Disciplined Agile is not a framework, but rather a toolkit that focuses on the decisions you need to consider, the options available to you, and the trade-offs associated with these options. It shows you how to effectively combine strategies from Scrum, Kanban, SAFe®, and many other approaches in a tailorable and scalable manner. Learn more at the PMI Disciplined Agile website
