DA Champions for PMI Chapters

Opportunity for PMI Chapters to Establish Disciplined Agile (DA) Champions

The DA Chapter Champion Program is an opportunity for chapters to get engaged with DA and bring DA resources to their communities. DA will assist chapters with planning webinars, communications, and promotions. In turn, PMI will promote DA classes, and offer giveaways and promotions.  DA Champions are expected to provide basic presentations regarding DA and its position within PMI, DA events, as well as basic DA introductory content provided by PMI. Certified Disciplined Agile Instructors (CDAIs), as well as employees of DA Adoption and Training Partners, may be appointed by their Chapters as chapter champions.  To avoid any potential conflict of interest, the DA Chapter Champion is not permitted to provide training for a fee at their local chapter.

To get involved, the chapter president will send the name and email of their designee to their chapter partner and
