DA adopts strategies from the following sources:
- DevOps. The DevOps movement has identified a collection of strategies for streamlining software development and operations, thereby improving quality, customer service, and time to market.
- Scrum. The Scrum framework focuses on team leadership and requirements change management. Scrum captures some really great ideas that have become commonly adopted by agile teams.
- Extreme Programming (XP). XP is an agile method that focuses primarily on hard-core software development practices.
- Scale Agile Framework (SAFe®). SAFe captures agile and lean strategies for large-scale agile programs.
- PMBOK®Guide. The PMBOK Guide captures proven project management practices.
- Spotify. The Spotify framework describes several teaming and organizational strategies for organizations new to agile ways of working.
- Kanban. Kanban is a method for managing knowledge work with an emphasis on just-in-time delivery while not overloading the team members. In Kanban the process, from definition of a task to its delivery to the customer, is visualized and team members pull work from a queue or work item pool.
- Agile Modeling (AM). AM is a practice-based methodology for effective modeling and documentation. AM was purposely architected to be a source of strategies which can be tailored into other base processes.
- Agile Data. The Agile Data (AD) method defines a collection of strategies that professionals can apply when working with and evolving sources of data.
- Unified Process (UP). The UP is an iterative and incremental process framework. The DA tool kit adopts and enhances several critical governance strategies from the UP.
- Traditional. There are many great ideas coming from traditional, sometimes called serial or even “predictive,” sources that have been contextualized in the DA tool kit.
- Other sources. DA adopts techniques and practices from other sources such as Dynamic System Development Method (DSDM), Feature Driven Development (FDD), Evo, Crystal Clear. We’ve also adopted leaned-out strategies from the ITIL, COBiT, TOGAF, and DAMA frameworks (to name a few) to flesh out portions of DA.
