The Disciplined Agile Enterprise (DAE)

A Disciplined Agile Enterprise (DAE) is able to sense and respond swiftly to changes in the marketplace. It does this through an organizational culture and structure that facilitates change within the context of the situation that it faces. Such organizations require a learning mindset in the mainstream business and underlying lean and agile processes to drive innovation.

Figure 1 provides an overview of the DA toolkit, showing the process blades/areas of each of the four layers.
