Scott to deliver a one-day DAD workshop in Potsdam Germany on November 19th

I’ll be delivering a one-day Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) workshop at the Agile Testing Days 2012 conference in Potsdam Germany on November 19th and also giving a keynote the following day about how testing practices fit in through the DAD lifecycle.

If you’re local to the Berlin/Postdam area I hope you can make it to both the conference and the event.

Workshop Description:

Introduction to Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD): The Foundation for Scaling Agile/Scrum

This one-day workshop begins with a deep dive into the fundamentals of the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) process framework.  DAD is a hybrid which combines strategies from Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean Software Development, Unified Process, and Agile Modeling and other sources.  DAD fills in the gaps left by mainstream methods by providing guidance on how to effectively organize and run complex enterprise projects.  DAD promotes the ideas that agile teams should adopt a full delivery lifecycle, focus on solutions over software, and be enterprise aware.  DAD’s goals-driven approach enables teams to tailor their strategy to address the scaling factors that it faces in practice.  Is your team large?  Is it geographically distributed?  Does it need to conform to regulations?  Does it face a complex business problem domain?  Participants will work through how to tailor their process and team structure to address these scaling factors and more.
