Disciplined Agile Delivery

Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) is a process toolkit that allows delivery teams to optimize their way-of-working (WoW), when delivering sophisticated agile and lean solutions in the enterprise.

DAD is part of the 'Disciplined Agile (DA) process improvement toolkit' that provides light-weight guidance to help organizations streamline their processes in a context sensitive manner, providing a solid foundation for business agility. It does this by showing how the various activities such as, Solution Delivery, IT Operations, Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Finance, Procurement and so on work together.

Make your adoption of DAD easier with Jile!

Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) is a people-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach to IT solution delivery. DAD provides a pragmatic approach of adopting the right set of agile practices based on the context and need.

Groups practising DAD can use Jile to adopt any of the chosen solution delivery lifecycles that DAD recommends!

The Agile Lifecycle: A Scrum-based Project Lifecycle

Agile Projects spawned off from an 'Inception' phase are executed through a series of iterations in the 'Construction' phase, followed by a final set of iterations to roll out the production-ready functionalities as part of the 'Transition' phase.

Jile supports this through an 'Agile Project Workspace', where an agile team can execute a project in short iterations.

The Lean Lifecycle: A Kanban-based Project Lifecycle

The Lean lifecycle is based on lean principles. Projects spawned off from an 'Inception' phase are executed in the 'Construction' phase by the project team in a continuous flow model. The production-ready functionality is shipped as part of the 'Transition' phase.

Jile supports this through an ‘Lean Project Workspace’, where a Kanban Development Project team can execute a project in a continuous flow model!

The Continuous Delivery: Agile Lifecycle

This is a natural progression from the 'Agile Lifecycle'. This supports the objective of delivering more frequently in increments. Teams plan and also deliver the most important work-items at the end of every Iteration. They often adopt 'Iteration Lengths' of one week or less.

Jile supports this through an 'Agile Project Workspace', where an Agile Development team plans, implements and delivers with an automated deployment pipeline, at the end of every Iteration.

The Continuous Delivery: Lean Lifecycle

DAD's Continuous Delivery: Lean lifecycle is a Lean version of the 'Continuous Delivery: Agile Lifecycle'. In this lifecycle, the team pulls work from the work-item pool based on their 'Work-in-process' limits, completes and ships the set of work items.

Jile supports this through a 'Lean Project Workspace', where a Kanban Development team can execute and ship the work-items using a deployment pipeline, in a continuous flow model.

The Exploratory (Lean Start-up) Lifecycle

The Exploratory lifecycle is based on the Lean start-up principles, where upfront investments in solutions can be minimized. This is done based on small market tested experiments that are measured early and often during the project.

Jile supports this through tracking the execution of an Initiative in an 'Agile Project Workspace', where the Initiative is executed incrementally based on a lean start-up model, such that it is pivoted or persevered depending on the resulting outcome.

The Program Lifecycle for a Team of Teams

Large teams organize into a Team of Teams and deliver functionalities incrementally. The teams can choose their own Way-of-Working (WoW). Coordination occurs among the teams to resolve dependencies, continuously integrate, test and deliver increments.

Jile supports this through an 'Agile Program Workspace', where a team of teams can be organized, such that they can manage a backlog, plan and deliver increments.
