"Mark and Scott not only made me think, they reminded me of lots of things that I had forgotten. Things that the agile fashion police have made uncool to talk about. This book is not about fashionable agile; it is about serious change, and it should be required reading for any change leader."--Dave West, chief product officer, Tasktop, and former VP and research director Forrester Research "Finally, a practical down-to-earth guide that is true to agile values and principles while at the same time acknowledging the realities of the business and the bigger picture. You will find no purist dogma here, nor any hype or hyperbole. Ambler and Lines show how to navigate the varied contexts and constraints of both team-level and enterprise-level needs to hit the agile `sweet spot' for your team and attain the real benefits of sustainable agility. I wish I'd had this book ten years ago!"--Brad Appleton, agile/lean development champion for a large fortune 150 telecommunications company "We have found the guidance from Disciplined Agile Delivery to be a great help in customizing our PMO governance for agile projects at CP Rail. The book will definitely be on the must-read list for teams using agile delivery."--Larry Shumlich, project manager coach, Canadian Pacific Railway "This book is destined to become the de facto standard reference guide for any organization trying to apply agile/scrum in a complex environment. Scott and Mark provide practical guidance and experiences from successful agile teams on what it takes to bring an end-to-end agile delivery lifecycle to the enterprise."--Elizabeth Woodward, IBM agile community leader, coauthor of A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum "There are many ways to achieve the benefits of agility, so it's really encouraging to see a pragmatic and usable `umbrella' description that encapsulates most of these without becoming a diluted kind of `best of' compilation, or a one-size-fits-all. Great reading for anyone orientating themselves in an ever-growing and complex field." --Nick Clare, agile coach/principal consultant, Ivar Jacobson International "Scott and Mark have compiled an objective treatment of a tough topic. Loaded with insights from successful application under game conditions, this book strikes a good balance between progressive agilists looking to accelerate change and conservative organizational managers looking for scalable solutions."--Walker Royce, chief software economist, IBM "Disciplined Agile Delivery, a hybrid and experience-based approach to software delivery, reflects the growing trend toward pragmatism and away from the anti-syncretism that has plagued the software development industry for over 40 years. I commend Scott and Mark for writing this book and showing the leadership necessary to take our profession to the next level."--Mark Kennaley, CTO,; author of SDLC 3.0: Beyond a Tacit Understanding of Agile "I've seen `certified agile' run rampant in an organization and create more severe problems than it solved. Finally, we have a definitive source on how to apply agile pragmatically with discipline to deliver success. Thanks, Scott and Mark."--Carson Holmes, EVP, service delivery, Fourth Medium Consulting, Inc.
