    About Disciplined Agile (DA)

    Disciplined Agile (DA) is a process-decision toolkit 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, Procurement 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.

    DA is architected into four views:

      1. Mindset. Builds on the foundations of agile and lean to address enterprise realities.
      2. People. Roles, responsibilities, and team structures.
      3. Flow. This captures the dynamic aspects of processes via lifecycle diagrams and workflow diagrams.
      4. Practices. This captures detailed strategies/techniques that are put into context via process goal diagrams.
