Do you want to take your company's agility to the next level by incorporating agile and lean concepts into a variety of circumstances, including non-software teams?
Disciplined Agile is a toolkit, not a framework, that focuses on the decisions you'll have to make, the options you'll have, and the trade-offs you'll have to make. It demonstrates how to combine methods from several agile and lean methodologies in a flexible and scalable way. Disciplined Agile helps organizations go to market faster, deliver value faster, and make their customers happier.
The DASSM course is a two-day instructor-led training for seasoned agile practitioners. The course will show you how to apply the Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit to improve team productivity, collaborate with internal allies, and tackle a variety of difficult problems.

DASSM Study Material
DASSM stands for Disciplined Agile Senior Scrum Master and it is one level higher up than DASM (Disciplined Agile Scrum Master). DASM talks about the foundations of Scrum, Lean and Disciplined Agile.
DASSM talks about taking this to the next level and implementing it not only for your teams but evangelizing for other teams, by networking with upper levels of management and other functional heads in the organization
There is no pre-requisite for the DASSM workshop.
However, we highly recommend to have the DASM course, whether you are experienced in Agile or not.
If you think that you can go to DASSM course directly, we recommend to take Prothoughts Knowledge Check
This will help you to understand where you stand with respect to your knowledge of Disciplined Agile.
This Knowledge Check identify areas where they may require additional study. Further, it will recommend resources and future course of action to attempt the DASSM exam.
The Knowledge check helps in the following aspects:
The DASSM does not have a training pre-requisite to take the workshop.
Students may have the 2 years required agile experience, which means the DASM class would be a too easy for them, but they may not have been introduced to Disciplined Agile (DA). This Knowledge Check helps them identify areas where extra learning/time may be needed
It helps them know what sections in the book to study prior to the exam
