Agile Montreal and PMI-Montreal present - Disciplined Agile's place in the extended Agile family


Present and place DA in the extended Agile family. Explore how we can use DA as a complement to other approaches or to unblock a stalled transformation.



The Disciplined Agile toolbox  was co-created and evolved by Scott Ambler and Mark Lines between 2006 and 2018, before being acquired by PMI in August 2019.

The Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit is an agnostic, learning-oriented hybrid strategy for business agility. DA can show you how to get better at getting better.

During this panel-workshop we have the privilege to explore, in the company of Scott Ambler and Allia DeAngelis, some of DA’s principles such as “choice is good”, “context matters” or “be pragmatic” and ask the question: How can we use this toolbox in our Agile journeys?

Participants will have a better understanding on how to use the Disciplined Agile toolkit, how to identify the choices they have and how to make a decision on which one to use in their particular context, in order to guide improvement in their organisations.
