About Disciplined Agile

The Disciplined Agile (DA) process decision toolkit provides light-weight guidance to help organizations streamline their processes in a context-sensitive manner, providing a solid foundation for business agility. It does this by showing how the various activities such as Solution Delivery, IT Operations, Enterprise Architecture, Portfolio Management, Finance, Procurement and many others work together. DA also describes what these activities should address, provides a range of options for doing so, and describes the trade-offs associated with each option.

I work with IT organizations, particularly medium to large-sized ones, to help them to transform themselves to become more effective. This often means that I help them to understand and adopted disciplined agile and lean ways of working. I am based in Toronto Canada but will often travel internationally to work face-to-face with customer organizations.

I regularly speak at IT conferences, often as a keynote speaker and sometimes as a workshop facilitator. I often keynote about Lean/Agile Enterprises, Scaling Agile Software Development, and Disciplined Agile (DA). Workshops tend to focus on DA, DevOps, enterprise architecture, agile data, and agile architecture skills.

I am the founder and practice leader of the Agile Modeling (AM) (AgileModeling.com) method, Agile Data (AD) (AgileData.org) method, and the Disciplined Agile (DA) (DisciplinedAgileDelivery.com) framework.

I am the (co-)author of several books, including Choose Your WoW!, An Executive’s Guide to Disciplined Agile, Disciplined Agile Delivery, Refactoring Databases, Agile Modeling, and The Elements of UML 2.0 Style. A full list of my books is presented at www.ambysoft.com/books/.
