Disciplined Agile® Scrum Master (DASM) Certification

Overview of Disciplined Agile

Extend Agile beyond a single approach: Because true agility comes from freedom, not frameworks.

Each team has its own ways of working. Yet, you stick to a widely used framework or one of the numerous agile approaches out there. Sure, a framework can help, but the smartest path forward often borrows thinking from several. That’s where Disciplined Agile can help.

It shows you how to effectively combine strategies from Scrum, Kanban, SAFe®, and many other approaches in a tailorable and scalable manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

No agile experience is required – this is introductory training and certification built to educate you on agile and lean fundamentals and the Disciplined Agile tool kit with skills to apply what you have learned immediately.

Download your courseware from the PMI website.  Read Section 1 of the “Choose Your WoW!” book, which will take approximately one hour.  Or you may prefer to watch the video overview of DA by Mark Lines, which will take about 30 minutes. 

Please note that this course is conducted via Zoom and we will be using a miro board for whiteboard exercises during the course.  If you are not already familiar with these tools, please watch these videos to learn the basics of Zoom and miro so you will be ready to fully participate in the course.

We would like you to feel comfortable and be engaged in the learning process.  Students are encouraged to post their questions on the Parking Lot in the miro board and those questions will be answered during the course.  We try to take a five minute break every hour so that you can stretch your legs, grab a beverage, and get a quick snack.  Then we get right back to the course, since we have a lot of material to cover.  We usually take a 20 or 30 minute break for lunch.

In a nutshell, Lean is based on systems thinking, whereas Agile is not based on systems thinking.  Both methods aim to provide clients with a high-quality product rapidly, one iteration (or sprint) at a time.  Many who aim to practice either Lean or Agile methods do not have a clear understanding of the differences between the goals and principles of Lean vs. Agile.  A failure to understand the principles behind the methodology can lead to shallow implementations, which means the ideal outcome will not be achieved.  Teams that clearly understand both Agile and Lean will be more successful, and can even hybridize their approach to enjoy the benefits of both methodologies.
