Disciplined Agile

What is Disciplined Agile?

Disciplined Agile (DA) is a process framework for agile software development that provides guidance on how to apply agile and lean techniques in a scalable and adaptable manner. DA aims to provide a pragmatic approach to agile that takes into account the realities and complexities of enterprise-level software development.

DA is based on the Agile Manifesto and incorporates ideas from a variety of agile and lean methods, including Scrum, Kanban, and SAFe. It emphasizes continuous improvement, collaboration, and delivery of value to the customer. One of the key features of DA is its flexibility. It provides a range of process options and strategies that can be tailored to the specific needs and context of an organization. This allows organizations to adopt agile in a way that works best for them, rather than trying to fit into a rigid set of rules.

Another important aspect of DA is its focus on the entire delivery lifecycle, including project initiation, construction, and delivery. It also provides guidance on how to integrate agile and lean practices with other enterprise-level processes, such as IT governance, portfolio management, and enterprise architecture.
