About Disciplined Agile (DA)
Key principles of DA include customer centricity, pragmatism, flexibility in methodology (supporting a range of agile and lean options), and the application of context-based practices that optimize flow across the entire enterprise. Applying the DA toolkit allows organizations to customize any method or framework—including traditional, Scrum, or SAFe—to drive outcomes that differentiate them from their competitors.
How DA Fits in with PMI
In August 2019, PMI announced the acquisition of DA. The combination of these two organizations offers a unique and unparalleled value proposition to stakeholders who are committed to improving their personal, team, and enterprise agility.
To help champion this new body of knowledge, PMI asked local chapters to identify a DA Champion. The PMI California Inland Empire chapter selected Bill Parris to be the local champion. Bill will lead any interested PMs in the Inland Empire communities to expand their agile knowledge into these new PMI certifications.
