Q&A Webinar: Manifesto for Agile Software Development Part 1 Values

Q: Can Agile be used outside software projects? For example Business Transformation? What methodology is best for such a project?

A: <<Becoming an agile business – an adaptive, responsive, and learning organization – is your true goal. Business agility requires true agility across all of your organization, not just software development, not just DevOps, and not just IT. There isn’t a single industry now that either isn’t dominated by agile businesses or isn’t under threat of disruption by new agile competitors. Not one.>> see more at https://www.pmi.org/disciplined-agile/books/exec-guide-to-da

Q: Is DA tool very commonly used in transformation?

The purpose of DA is to provide support to achieve business agility (an adaptive and efficient organization). Not only development, DevOps, and IT, but all organization areas (Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Security, Finance, Vendor Management and others). See the link from previous question.

Q: Do you have like a blueprint of how DA should be used as a tool?

There are some logical steps:

  • Analyze your context: stable / changing requirements; high / low incertitude; scaling factors , specific to your context, that increase difficulties and complexity
  • Select a development life-cycle from several agile-lean options (Agile, Lean-Kanban, Continuous Delivery, Exploratory)
  • Decide what process capabilties you need to improve / support. Examples: Explore Scope, Improve Quality, Grow Team Members, Coordinate Actvities, Portfolio Management, Reuse Engineering, Security
  • Use DA guidance to select from various options related to practices and way of working pereach selected process capability

You can use Scrum, XP, SAFE or Kanban and also use DA for more guidance, improvement and adapt to your concrete situation.

See solution delivery process capabilities

See enterprise level process capabilities

Q: Why is it so hard to put agile values ​​into practice?

Unfortunately, too often the path chosen is wrong or “closed”. Agile aims to build / improve software development capabilities (or other areas).

How can you be wrong?

  • Use word “mindset”, but don’t talk about agile values and principles
  • “Method prison” – use only a small set of practices from a specific method
  • Refuse to understand that Scrum is incomplete by definition and you need to add more practices
  • Use only a too narrow Agile guidance and unprepared and un-experienced coaches
  • Management directed agile adoption with a one size fit all approach

20th Anniversary Free Webinar: Agile Manifesto Made Easy, Part 1 – Values

Bonus Topics:
– From values to practices: Scrum, XP, Disciplined Agile
– Disciplined Agile Manifesto values
– Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship

It is interesting to see which method or toolkit offers more support for Agile values.

Disciplined Agile Certification FAQs update

The Disciplined Agile Certification FAQs page was updated. Also you can find more information here PMI New Agile Certification Journey: FAQs (PDF).

I have a comment: DASM training is good not only for “beginning” but also for Foundations of Lean which are rarely described in other sources and for a detailed presentation of Disciplined Agile Delivery process blade. Scrum and other sources do not offer a similar complete picture of the solution delivery process. A good team leader will need also DASM training, not only Scrum and DASSM. The Foundation of Lean is very important for further DASSM training related to Value Stream Layer optimization.
