Tailoring Agile for large-scale complex projects requires a thorough understanding of the scaling process and a more disciplined approach to agile development. This tailoring is brought about by Disciplined Agile (DA), an IT process decision framework that delivers sophisticated agile solutions in the enterprise by considering and working around the complexities and realities of large scale agile development.

SKTekki’s 2-day “Introduction to Disciplined Agile” – Certification Prep Workshop helps you learn the ropes of this technique and use agile methods such as Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean software development, Unified Process, and Agile Modeling to effectively plan, design and implement large-scale projects. This non-technical course with ample group exercises, practical sessions and in-depth courseware, is a complete learning solution for all team members, who can start adapting agile for project success and aim for a first time pass of the Certified Disciplined Agilist certification.
