I recently had the privilege to work on “Essentializing DAD“, on overview of Disciplined Agile Delivery based on OMG/SEMAT Essence Language constructs as Alphas, Patterns, Resources, Activities, Work Products.
I want to thank Scott Ambler who started this Essentializing DA initiative and collaborated with SEMAT from 2009. Scott helped me with feedback and review of this material.
The Alphas – essential elements to describe a DAD based process or any process- are the followings:
- Full deliveries life-cycles
- Consumable Solutions
- Adapt to Context
- Core Agile Practices
- Teal Teams & Organizations
- Guided Process Improvements
With these core elements you can
- asses your way of working for completeness & aspects coverage in general and on Agile adoption in particular
- asses the Agile methods that you are using (Scrum, XP or others)
- speed up understanding & learning of Disciplined Agile and Agile
