The Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit supplies straightforward guidance to help you, your team, and your enterprise increase effectiveness. Is your way of working (WoW) done in a context-sensitive manner with this people-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach? Tap into PMI's industry-leading process decision tool kit.


DA provides a solid foundation for business agility by showing how the various activities such as Solution Delivery (software development), IT Operations, Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Security, Finance, Procurement, and many others work together. DA also describes what these activities should address, provides a range of options for doing so, and describes the trade-offs associated with each option.


ProPMO has developed uniquely participatory digital learning experiences termed ‘Learning Circles’ for its Bootcamp. These enable facilitation of DA contextualizion through an innovative, collaborative and digitally-blended training medium that is gaining momentum the world over.

Synchronous Sessions (approx. 4 hours each) will see experts from ProPMO and participants logging in and interacting together. Unlike conventional trainers, experts from ProPMO will play the role of facilitators who take each participant down a path to help contextualize their challenges and opportunities for DA adoption.

Asynchronous Sessions will entail participants logging in to the platform at their own convenience to access reading material, independently engage in discussions with peers, post queries for our experts to answer, share research on topics, analyse case studies, and complete polls and surveys.

In this sense, the Learning Circle (LC) as a medium is a departure from the classic Webinar or online workshop format. It ensures effective two-way communication, peer learning and discussions, effectively merging content with context, and resolving of specific problems with sustained guidance.
