The quick answer is of course “Yes”. ??
A couple of years ago we caused a bit of confusion when we expanded the scope of Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) to address the activities of an information technology (IT) department. When we did this we realized that the scope of the toolkit and the name no longer matched, so we decided to rebrand to be simply the “Disciplined Agile (DA)” toolkit. Having said that, sometimes it makes sense to say DAD and sometime DA depending on what you’re focusing on at the time.
The Scope of Disciplined Agile (DA)
As you can see in the following diagram, which depicts the scope of the DA toolkit, it’s clear why there has been some confusion because DA covers a lot of ground.
Let’s explore each aspect depicted in the diagram:
The first “1.0 release” was the original Disciplined Agile Delivery book in June of 2012. As the title suggests the focus was on DAD, although it laid the groundwork for Disciplined DevOps in that it baked in the development side of DevOps right into DAD. In 2015 we began publishing our work in both Disciplined DevOps and Disciplined Agile IT (DAIT) and renamed the toolkit to Disciplined Agile (DA) to reflect this expanded scope. Since 2017 we have begun to flesh out Disciplined Agile Enterprise strategies and will soon begin the share them here on this site.
