When I hear the term Disciplined Agile, I think of someone punishing Agile – and that makes me happy!
Agile needs a good punishing.
Reason: many companies in Switzerland are now investing strongly in agile (which is good) but like most agile advocates they teach and often attempt to set up Agile with GOs (Gross Oversimplifications) that only apply to IUs (Impossible Utopias).
Many companies in Switzerland also seem to suffer badly from the misconception that Agile = Scrum. This is entirely untrue, and it doesn’t help the situation. I’ve worked in classical waterfall projects that took ultra-agile approaches.
How does DA come in?
DA ist not a framework but rather a toolbox – toolboxes are always nice!
