Welcome to the Disciplined Agile Consortium (DAC) Membership site
This Disciplined Agile Manifesto is an extension of the original Manifesto for Agile Software Development written in 2001 that reflects the philosophies behind the Disciplined Agile (DA) framework.
For a discussion of our thinking behind this manifesto, see Extending the Agile Manifesto.
About the Disciplined Agile (DA) Framework
When we describe the DA framework we remind people that it is not another agile method as we clearly have enough of those already. Rather, DA is a process decision framework that enables better decision making when customizing approaches for adopting agile within the context of your organization and projects. Popular agile methods can be quite prescriptive. Sometimes their agile rules – work collocated in one room, use teams less than nine people, or don’t do fixed price projects – are not practical. Rather than discounting such projects as not agile, why not take a pragmatic approach to dealing with these realities while striving to still be as agile as possible? Disciplined Agile provides the guidance that enables you to easily tailor, and later evolve, your agile approach to effectively address the context of the situation that you find yourself in.
