New for 2020. PMI reinvented?

PMI CDAC (Certified Disciplined Agile Coach)

It's official (sort of). PMI is launching two new Certifications as part of their DA and FLEX acquisitions. 43 instructors worldwide have been trained to conduct these certification workshops in Atlanta, GA in November 2019 with the launch of certification training workshops starting 1. Jan 2020. I am one of them and would be honored to have you be one of the first to obtain the new CDAC credential backed by PMI.

Agile Lipstick applied to the Industrial Age Pig changes nothing.

When story points are  hours, user stories are tasks, and scaling frameworks such as SAFe are your blueprint in one-size-fits all implementations that help maintain your industrial age hierarchy of an era long by-gone, it is time to revisit your Agile/DevOps strategy.  Lean and Agile are not goals. They are potential means to a goal.  Let's start (over) with your goals.

The Creative Economy demands change. Your customers demand it.  Organizational  and Business Agility requires leaders ready to make the relentless advances necessary to deliver more with less. We can help you make that happen.

200+ Agile/DevOps initiatives executed hands-on in 18+ countries over the last 13 years: What did I learn?

Never underestimate the forces of maintaining the top-down, industrial age, plan and control culture that maintains the status-quo. Agile Lipstick applied to the Industrial Age pig changes nothing . Focus instead on delivering higher value faster to the customer.



Lead. Take it up a notch.

Agility entails a congruent organizational culture and recognition that Conway's law led to the legacy and monolithic architectures and unpaid technical debt in the first place. 

*

Adopt DevOps capabilities to foster emergent design that supports Agility bottom-up.  At the same time, utilize the ACoE to change the mindset with Lean Thinking top-down.  Organizational Agility is possible by focusing on both aspects equally.
