    DA 105: Disciplined Agile in a Nutshell 

    Times noted below are India time UTC + 5:30.            

    August 2 -  6:00-9:30 PM (Indian Standard Time)

    August 3 -  6:00-9:30 PM PM (Indian Standard Time)

    $275 USD          

    This workshop is being held over 2 days with approximately 3.5 hour sessions each day. You must attend both sessions to complete the workshop and be eligible for the CDA test code. 

    Agile transformation is hard because cultural change is hard. It’s not one problem that needs to be solved, but a series of hundreds decisions affecting lots of people over a long period of time that affects relationships, processes, and even the state of mind of those working within the change.

    Disciplined Agile (DA) is unlike any other framework, because it’s based on empiricism, industry data and adoption of proven practices. The result is a huge wealth of structured information that allows you to map your challenges into a tree structure of proven strategies that other people have found to work in practice. In effect you can apply the DA framework to identify process improvements that reflect the actual situations faced by your teams.

    This workshop focuses on how to apply the DA framework to deliver sophisticated agile solutions in the enterprise. The DA framework 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 enterprise-class settings. Filling in the gaps left by mainstream methods, DA provides 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.

    This workshop is not technical and is suitable for all team members. Group discussions reinforce the principles learned. The workshop is valuable for anyone who wants to understand how agile solution delivery works from end-to-end or anyone tasked with moving from traditional approaches to agile, particularly in enterprise settings.

    Outline

    Day 1:
    1. Introduction to Disciplined Agile (DA): Learn about the four delivery lifecycles supported by DA; Basic Lifecycle, Lean Lifecycle, Lean Continuous Delivery Lifecycle and the DAD Exploratory Lean Startup Lifecycle.  How DA is a hybrid that shows how proven practices from a range of sources fits together; how to take a flexible, non-prescriptive approach to agile development; and the importance of being enterprise aware.
    2. The Agile Manifesto 
    3. The Disciplined Agile Manifesto
    4. Lean Software Development Principles
    5. Disciplined Agile roles: Team Lead (ScrumMaster), Product Owner, Architecture Owner, Team Member, Stakeholder + five more optional scaling roles.
    Day 2: 
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Transition Phase: Overviews strategies for releasing the solution to your stakeholders.
    4. Summarizing the Workshop: A Retrospective

    Please view DAD recorded presentations before the first session of the workshop to ensure all registrants have knowledge of the DA framework.

    To give all registrants an idea of the language and approach used in the sessions, please view the iZenbridge presentation.
