2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the Agile Manifesto. Yet many organizations are still
struggling to clearly improve value delivery for their customers. In this talk Mark Lines explains
why agile has struggled in the past and what we can do about it. Go beyond agile rhetoric, agile
methods and frameworks and learn how to optimize agility for your situation, not others. We
can do better, and it is not difficult. Disciplined Agile can help. The journey starts with an
investment in learning, optimizing for your situation, and then removing obstacles to accelerate
delivery and delight your customers.
Mark Lines is Vice President, Disciplined Agile at the Project Management Institute (PMI) . He is
co-creator of the Disciplined Agile toolkit with Scott W. Ambler and co-author of several books
on Disciplined Agile (DA).
