WMPMI's monthly breakfast time meeting is a one-PDU event featuring a speaker that presents on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle. 

Disciplined Agile – A Value-Add Member Benefit

Disciplined Agile is the topic of many conversations in our PMI Community. We hear these kinds of questions: Why did PMI add it to their product portfolio? What is Disciplined Agile? What is the value of Disciplined Agile to Chapter Members? How can you bring value to your team/organization with Disciplined Agile? How do I get started? What is possible for your personal and chapter roadmap?

Join us to hear Beth Ouellette share answers to all these questions and more. She will guide us through key components of Disciplined Agile as she shares practical applications, analogies and stories to connect the dots. She will even share the roadmap she used for her DA journey that you could leverage too. In addition, she will share how she has seen DA used on volunteer projects. Though it is only an hour, we hope to gain a clear understanding of the potential of Disciplined agile for our Chapter, our members, and our community. You may even discover that you already apply a Disciplined Agile “Way of Working” and how you too can apply it today.
