Tuesday 13 August 2019

13 August 2019 - US-based Project Management Institute, a not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession, has acquired Disciplined Agile, the group said.

The DA toolkit is the world's only comprehensive agile body of knowledge that provides straightforward and practical guidance to help individuals, teams and enterprises choose their "way of working" in a context-specific way.

Key principles of DA include customer centricity, being pragmatic rather than purist, providing a range of agile and lean options, applying context-based practices, and optimizing flow across the entire enterprise.

Applying the DA toolkit allows organizations to customize any method or framework such as traditional, Scrum, or SAFe to drive outcomes that differentiate them from their competitors.

The integration of the acquisition is beginning immediately, and PMI will provide additional details to members and other stakeholders in due course.

Project Management Institute is an association for those who consider project, programme or portfolio management their profession.

Founded in 1969, PMI delivers value for more than 3m professionals working in nearly every country in the world through global advocacy, collaboration, education and research.

The Disciplined Agile toolkit is an approach to help individuals and teams make informed choices, improve their way of working, and help organizations streamline agile and leans strategies to make better decisions.
