DA 104: Introduction to Disciplined Agile 

Certification Prep Workshop

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.

Pre-workshop prep

  1. Please view the "Being Agile" and "Being Disciplined" sections on the Introduction resource page before the first session of the workshop to ensure all registrants have knowledge of the DA framework.

Outline

  1. Introduction to Disciplined Agile (DA): Overviews key DA concepts such as the four delivery lifecycles, enterprise awareness, team roles, being agile vs doing agile, the importance of context, and taking a flexible, goal-driven approach.  We also describe the roles and responsibilities that people take on DA team and team structures for small, medium, large, and geographically distributed teams.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Transition Phase: Overviews strategies for releasing the solution to your stakeholders.
