DA212: GOVERNING AGILE – A DISCIPLINED APPROACH TO LEAN GOVERNANCE

When organizations first adopt agile strategies they focus on software development. This is a good start, but they quickly realize that teams need to be governed effectively. Teams start to learn and evolve the way that they work. They do this in different ways – and not every team is agile. Some teams take a Lean/Kanban-based approach instead. Not only has it become obvious that your existing, traditional approach to governance isn’t going to work, it’s also clear that you will need a flexible, lightweight approach that can support a range of development strategies, while still addressing the usual regulatory compliance and audit requirements. Disciplined Agile (DA) has a lightweight, risk-based governance solution.
