Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) is an IT process decision framework for delivering sophisticated agile solutions in the enterprise. It builds on the existing proven practices from agile methods such as Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean software development, Unified Process, and Agile Modeling to include other aspects necessary for success in the enterprise. DAD fills in the gaps left by mainstream methods by providing guidance on how to effectively plan and kickstart complex projects as well as how to apply a full lifecycle approach, with lightweight milestones, effective metrics, and agile governance.
This one day workshop is not technical and is suitable for all team members. Many group exercises reinforce the principles learned. The workshop is also valuable for management tasked with moving from traditional approaches to agile.
At some point, you may have heard something along the lines of “We’re agile, we don’t need no steenkin’ architecture” at some point. Well, I don’t know what that person was doing, but it certainly wasn’t agile. Architecture is so important to agile teams that we consider architectural issues all the way through the lifecycle. Disciplined agile teams invest a bit of time early in the lifecycle to explore potential architecture strategies, they prove the architecture early in construction with working code so as to pay down technical risk, they perform architecture spikes, they do detailed design, and many other things. In this presentation we’ll explore agile architectural strategies, the role of the architecture owner, and how disciplined agile teams work with enterprise architects.
