Disciplined Agile: Foundations of Agile

Becoming certified as a Disciplined Agilist (DA) indicates to colleagues and employers that you have taken the initial steps to learn about Disciplined Agile. This module teaches you the foundation for successfully starting an Agile way of working (WoW) inside your team.

About Disciplined Agile (DA)

Disciplined Agile (DA) is a process-decision tool kit that provides straightforward guidance to help people, teams, and organizations to streamline their processes in a context-sensitive manner.

DA provides a solid foundation for business agility by showing how the various activities such as Solution Delivery (software development), IT Operations, Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Security, Finance, Vendor Management, and many others work together. DA also describes what these activities should address, provides a range of options for doing so, and describes the trade-offs associated with each option.

Four views:

  • Mindset. Builds on the foundations of agile and lean to address enterprise realities.
  • People. Roles, responsibilities, and team structures.
  • Flow. This captures the dynamic aspects of processes via lifecycle diagrams and workflow diagrams.
  • Practices. Small strategies/techniques. Goal diagrams are a high-level pick list of practices.
