Disciplined Agile® Value Stream Consultant (DAVSC) Certification

Help organizations to achieve true business agility.

Do you want to accelerate value delivery at scale by moving beyond individual teams and applying Disciplined Agile® across your organization?

Disciplined Agile Value Stream Consultant (DAVSC) folds practices from Flow, Lean, the Theory of Constraints, and Organizational Development into Disciplined Agile to give you the tools to optimize enterprise-wide value streams.

Filled with collaborative activities, supplemental reading and more, this 21 PDU instructor-led course goes beyond a single framework by teaching you the mindset, practices and tools to reduce waste and focus on what matters.

“The DAVSC certification from PMI feels like the most valuable offering since the PMP and PMBOK first captured the attention of knowledge workers around the world. It is much more than a workshop, an exam and a badge.”
