Disciplined Agile Delivery by Scott Ambler and Mark Lines

 Success of agile methods in small organizations with co-located teams is well known.
 But scaling Agile to an enterprise level is a different ball game. 
It requires a more rigorous approach than many of the popular agile methodologies . 
The rigor is needed especially in the areas like architectural planning, modeling , risk management and governance. The challenge here is how to bring about this rigor without compromising on Agile values and principles. 
Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) , is a process framework that meets this challenge.
 It takes a pragmatic approach that strikes a right balance between a lightweight, highly people dependent agile method and an overweight, highly documentation oriented traditional development. 
 DAD framework is fully described in this book by Scott Ambler and Mark Lines, who are its creators.Highly recommended for anyone who needs a practical and pragmatic advice on first steps towards scaling Agile.
