DA Chapter Champion Resources

If you are a new Disciplined Agile® Chapter Champion (DACC) or a returning Champion, this area is filled with resources created and delivered just for you. This area is continually renewed, so visit frequently as updates will bring you the latest and greatest information.

As the DACC Program continues to evolve, be sure to say plugged in to the variety of possibilities. There are more opportunities than ever for Disciplined Agile learning and education. If you are ready to use DA and discover your WOW (Way of Working) for a chapter event or chapter project, go for it. It you want an advisor on how to do this, please reach out.  We have some DACCs who have already started these things with their chapter, as well as DA professionals who would be pleased to assist.  Now is the time to put this in action.

Remember that all of these flavors of DA events and activities can tie back to your chapter’s core services. It is another great way to bring value to your membership! What will you do next for your chapter? Where will you add membership value? When will you take the action? How will you be the “Go Getter” for your chapter’s DA initiative?
