Disciplined Agile Overview for the Curious
Disciplined Agile (DA) is a process-decision toolkit that provides guidance to help people, teams, and organizations streamline their processes in a context-sensitive manner, providing a solid foundation for business agility. Two of the seven principles of Disciplined Agile are Context and Choice. This implies that based on the context of the work effort (project, team, or skill set etc.) the team should be able to choose the best workflow to apply to this effort. The DA structure uses an iteration goal to make this workflow choice. Now these workflows can vary from accepted methodologies like SCRUM or Kanban to organization specific workflows that fit your specific circumstances.
