Why Disciplined Agile Uses Work in Process and not Work in Progress

One of DA's mantras is to be able to choose your own Way of Working (WoW) based on where you are and what you want to achieve. DA is a pragmatic approach based on the principles that choice is important & guided by the context you are in. 

Some Agile at scale approaches often work at first, starting well only to plateau or even go backwards. The reason for this is that most companies require two steps to get from where they are to where they want to go and most pre-defined approaches attempt to accomplish this in one step.

  1. What we want to achieve
  2. The two steps required
  3. Why the first step on its own often ends up being a step backwards
  4. Implementing the DA-FLEX Two-Step Method 1 for small to medium size organizations with well-defined teams
