Disciplined Agile: PMI's Strategy to Lead in the Agile Space
In August of 2019, PMI acquired Discipline Agile (DA) toolkits to expand PMI’s agile body of knowledge to provide straightforward and practical guidance to help individuals, teams, and enterprises to choose their “way of working” in a context-specific way. In this meeting, we will take a look at what PMI’s strategy is with DA, and provide an overview of what DA is, how it can help you in your current position, and what certifications are available.
