Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant Q&A Program

This section of the portal is for supporting the Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant Workshop (DAVSC), currently under development. Discussions on the pages here will take place on the Disciplined Agile LinkedIn group.

Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant Workshop

Al Shalloway, former CEO of Net Objectives and Director, Thought Leadership for Agile at Scale Programs at PMI is currently creating two workshops:

  1. the 4-day Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant workshop.
  2. the 2-day Disciplined Agile for SAFe workshop

In preparing for these workshops Al is having 2 Q&A sessions each week to present some of the concepts and to get feedback on the workshop. These sessions are primarily for Al’s benefit. He likes to build workshops by interacting with potential attendees. However, you are sure to learn a lot as well if you have interest in learning how to do Agile at scale. Disciplined Agile and FLEX are quite different from frameworks that purport to help achieve Agility at Scale.

There are no PDUs given or credit towards any PMI certification. However, this is a great opportunity to work with Al as he creates leading edge materials.

The sessions are scheduled as follows:

  1. Tuesdays 3pm Pacific. 8am Wednesday Melbourne. The April 21st session will be an overview of FLEX as a playbook. 
  2. Thursdays 9am Pacific. These are also open to anyone. The April 23rd session is cancelled due to a conflict with another webinar.  Thursday sessions will resume April 30th.

If you want an invite for your calendar connect with Al on LinkedIn and message him.  You should also join the Disicplined Agile Linkedin group.
