Thank you for helping set the direction of Disciplined Agile by responding to our surveys, and continuing to grow Disciplined Agile by engaging with us on LinkedIn and twitter.
2017 was a year with significant growth - we welcomed hundreds of DA Members, renewed many certified members and gained new partners - our newest partner is Franklin Templeton Investments. 44% of our members have earned a "Certified" Designation.
We have published two Case Studies, their overview is below. If you have a case study or blog to share on the results of DA in your organization, please share it with us.
We look forward to bringing you more resources, as well as updated resources, during 2018. To see what is on everyone's mind, read the "Top 7" list of topics from our webinar survey this past November. Thank you to everyone who took the time to give us your input.

Frankly, what’s not to like? The oath promotes the idea that coaches should do no harm, that they’re guests, that they should respect learnings, that they value discretion, and many other wonderful philosophies. Several of them are arguably a bit naive, for example: Read More ...
Building Your IT Support Environment
An important aspect of Support that is easily forgotten is the need to build out your infrastructure to enable your support efforts. This may include:
Creating a support knowledgebase so that your Support Engineers can capture solutions to the problems they solve.
Provide access to the support knowledgebase to support self-service by end users. This access is often limited for privacy reasons – end users should have access to solutions to common problems but not the details to specific incidents.
A support environment to simulate problems. In some cases, such as an online trading system perhaps, you don’t want your Support Engineers trying to diagnose end user problems on the live system itself due to potential side effects of doing so.
Installing communication systems such as chat software and a phone/call in system.
Automated support systems such as integrated voice response (IVR) and artificial intelligence (AI)/bots
’m happy to announce that the Disciplined Agile Consortium (DAC) is now working with SEMAT. SEMAT, Software Engineering Method and Theory, is an international community of people, companies, and universities. Led by Ivar Jacobson, SEMAT is working together to create a common ground, or kernel, for software engineering. As you may know I am one of the original signatories who first indicated their support for the SEMAT effort and am currently a member of the SEMAT advisory board.
So why are we working with SEMAT? We hope to gain several benefits: Read More ...
Defining MVP, MMF, MMP and MMR
The term minimal viable product (MVP) has achieved buzzword status in recent times and I’m now hearing people throwing around the term MVP almost on a daily basis. Sometimes they’re using it correctly but many times they aren’t. Frankly it’s driving me nuts.
The issue is that it’s common for people to say MVP when they are actually talking about a minimal marketable feature (MMF), a minimal marketable product (MMP), or even a minimal marketable release (MMR). As you can see, these terms are very similar to one another so we shouldn’t be surprised that there’s a bit of confusion around them. So let’s try to clear things up.
