If you haven’t yet read my Intro to Disciplined Agile Delivery please check it out. DAD is a hybrid of existing Agile methods that provide the flexibility of using various approaches while filling gaps left by current Agile methods. This four-part serious, in addition to the introduction above, should make an excellent primer for the seasoned Agilist.

Disciplined Agile takes a goal-driven approach to accomplishing work. Practices in Disciplined Agile are expressed in what are called Goal Diagrams. Goal diagrams are slices of common areas within an organization. Altogether we have a set of common Process Goals which are supported by one or more Process Goal Diagrams.
