Topic: Welcome to Disciplined Agile

Speaker: Alan Zucker


Agile is changing the way we manage all projects. Agile projects are more successful and have higher customer satisfaction rates than traditional projects. It can also be used to deliver anything from non-profit programs to large, complicated cyber-physical products.

The Project Management Institute acquired the Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit to provide its members with credible new capabilities and certifications that will make them even more valuable in the marketplace. DA recognizes that every team, project, and organization operate within their own context.

Disciplined Agile provides a pragmatic approach that recognizes that making informed choices is good. The fundamental advice is to start where you are, do the best you can—given the situation that you face—and always try to get better.

In this presentation, Alan Zucker explains the value of agile and the benefits of Disciplined Agile. Through this conversation, participants will understand how DA fits into their context, its practical applications, and how they can become part of this new and exciting movement.

Meeting Date and Time:

Tuesday, January 12, 2021, from 7 - 8:30 pm

Cost: $10 PMI Southern Maryland Chapter Members; $13 Non-Members

Agile Series Online Education

Last year, PMI Southern Maryland Chapter (PMISOMD) and the University of Maryland Project Management Center of Excellence (UMD PM COE) co-hosted the Agile Project Management Series with a series of five Agile Project Management meetings in Prince George's County, and five meetings in St. Mary's County. The 50 PDU program was widely successful. Now, the UMD PM COE has created an online Agile Project Management Series on EdX! They offer both a free version of the training and a paid version that provides unlimited access and an Agile Project Management Professional Certificate online. Over 500,000 people worldwide have registered!

Vision, Mission & Objectives

The PMI Southern Maryland Chapter will be recognized as a dynamic leading-edge organization comprised of dedicated project management professionals who are committed to serving the business and educational community of Southern Maryland through the advancement of Project Management knowledge.

Military Outreach

Our Military Outreach program is a targeted effort to create awareness of multiple programs that offer reduced costs or authorized use of benefits specifically for active, former, and retired members of the military to support Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification, the credential widely recognized by both business and government for its credibility and value in contributing to an organization’s mission success. PMI SoMD’s interest in Military Outreach is simple - to help our fellow veterans. Our Military Outreach Committee consists of retired Navy and Marine Corps veterans, all PMPs, who have experienced the value of our PMP certifications and want to help others enjoy these benefits by sharing information on programs available to assist veterans in preparation for or during transition, or to enhance current skills sets and qualifications. We look forward to assisting you in pursuing your goals and objectives.
