Disciplined Agile: Foundations of Agile

Ever wonder what it is like to work on an Agile team? Sure, on the surface Agile looks simple and straightforward. In practice, though, when we start adopting an Agile way of working, reality quickly proves to be much more complex than expected. This module teaches you the foundation for successfully starting an Agile way of working (WoW) inside your team.

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.

    3. Flow. This captures the dynamic aspects of processes via lifecycle diagrams and workflow diagrams.
    4. Practices. Small strategies/techniques. Goal diagrams are a high-level pick list of practices.
