Concluding Thoughts

Continuous improvement, evolving your WoW through experiments, is a proven way to achieve lasting process improvement. Lean practitioners have been doing this for decades and virtually every DevOps case study advises you to evolve your WoW this way. Guided continuous improvement (GCI) takes it one step further and streamlines your experimentation efforts. Agile methods/frameworks will only get you part of the way towards working effectively, the rest of your journey requires you to adopt a constant learning, continuous improvement strategy. Disciplined Agile (DA), and more importantly DA practitioners, can help you do that.
