Presenter Topic

Why I use Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) in working with my client’s projects
 
Conversation leads to discussion, discussion leads to commitments, and now the client wants to unpack their project concept. It starts with a feeling, an ambiguous afterthought, or an unexplored opportunity. They want questions directed to them. Questions that are prompting, exploratory, and even the hard questions to guide them in their concept development. With one inspiration and then another, the concept starts to take shape. What practice did I use to guide the initial process? DAD. DAD provides the pathway for team start-ups, identifies business value, discoveries techniques for production management, applies lean principles, involves team strategies, and looks for continuous improvement approaches. Out of its six life cycles, it allows me to apply agile practices to any project type.
 
Learning Objectives:
How adaptive DAD is for virtual team engagement, exploratory approach, requirements gathering, concept formation, and managing change.
