I remember my first reading of the DAD – Disciplined Agile Framework by Scott Ambler that one of the areas he emphasized was governance.
When I first read it I had two immediate reactions:
- What did he mean by “governance”?
- And why care about it within agility; wasn’t that something agile intended to minimize or eliminate with transparency?
So to say that I was less than impressed by DAD initially was an understatement. But over time, I’ve kept up with Scott’s writings and explanations of his intentions with DAD. And to be honest, I like what I’m hearing of late.
