PMI Chicagoland Chapter DA Training
Disciplined Agile Scrum Master (DASM)

Course Summary

Is your team treading water using waterfall? Do you feel trapped in an agile framework? Would you like to find solutions to the problems you’ve been wrestling with? Are you looking for ways to enhance your team’s agility?

Break free from your old ways by choosing a way of working that fits your team’s context. Find strategies to improve your processes and strengthen your team with the Disciplined Agile tool kit.

Disciplined Agile Scrum Master is a nine-lesson, instructor-led course that shows you how to use Disciplined Agile (DA) to improve your team’s way of working. In just 2 full days (2 consecutive Saturdays so you have a life), you’ll become familiar with foundational agile and lean practices that DA supports, practice using the tool kit to solve problems and learn how to build high-performance teams.

Filled with activities, animations, supplemental reading, and more, this course will prepare you to take the Disciplined Agile Scrum Master (DASM) exam and, equally important, start using Disciplined Agile immediately.
