I will be teaching a two-day Advanced DAD workshop in Zurich on April 8&9th. The workshop is hands-on and is meant for intermediate-level people. People new to agile can still attend of course but may find it a bit overwhelming. I’m always happy to stay late and help anyone struggling, and happier yet to do so over a beer. Anyway, click here for more information.
I will be facilitating a 4 hour Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) workshop at the Central and Eastern European Software Engineering Conference on October 31 and also doing a talk the following day on Disciplined Agile Delivery in a Nutshell.
I’ll be delivering a one-day Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) workshop at the Agile Testing Days 2012 conference in Potsdam Germany on November 19th and also giving a keynote the following day about how testing practices fit in through the DAD lifecycle.
If you’re local to the Berlin/Postdam area I hope you can make it to both the conference and the event.
Introduction to Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD): The Foundation for Scaling Agile/Scrum
This one-day workshop begins with a deep dive into the fundamentals of the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) process framework. DAD is a hybrid which combines strategies from Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean Software Development, Unified Process, and Agile Modeling and other sources. DAD fills in the gaps left by mainstream methods by providing guidance on how to effectively organize and run complex enterprise projects. DAD promotes the ideas that agile teams should adopt a full delivery lifecycle, focus on solutions over software, and be enterprise aware. DAD’s goals-driven approach enables teams to tailor their strategy to address the scaling factors that it faces in practice. Is your team large? Is it geographically distributed? Does it need to conform to regulations? Does it face a complex business problem domain? Participants will work through how to tailor their process and team structure to address these scaling factors and more.
