Recommends it for: No One
While in the short run the strategies offered appear to be good. In the long run companies who follow them will be delivering poor quality products either internally or externally. I don't recommend this book for any company that wishes to be successful.

Learned a lot!

Necessary to read to fully understand DAD. I was skeptical of agile especially I thought it is not somehow applicable to SAP implementation or sustainment however, there are strategies we can really apply

Interesting, but not revelatory for me. Having read a lot of books on agile and mapped how these practices can work in a consulting business, some of the contents felt a bit obvious, or in other cases irrelevant. I would recommend the book more if it was slightly more accessible for those new to agile delivery.

This book provides solutions for activities that are needed to deliver software and satisfy the needs of all involved stakeholders, in a disciplined and agile way.

(Full book review is published on Dzone, and at Disciplined Agile Delivery)

Disciplined Agile Delivery is a hybrid approach, which includes practices from several agile methods. If you are familiar with RUP or the Unified Process, then you will also recognize a lot of the practices provided in the book. The phases Inception, Constructio

Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD),is a process framework that meets the challenge of bringing rigor in implementing Agile in an enterprise without compromising on Agile Values and Principles.
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

Shelves: development
The fascinating thing about this book is that it most eloquently and with great detail describes much of what wer're doing on a day to day basis, and thus helps getting proposals on how to elaborate further.

Shelves: agile
Scott Ambler, using all currently popular buzzwords (sometimes wrong, for example DevOps), is trying to sell (again) his new acronym for a "new" process framework consisting of old methods and well known practices. No new ideas - useless and boring book.

A great realistic refererence book for creating and managing teams and projects in a responsible Agile way, tried and true to my own experience working in several multinationals which internally converted to Agiledevelopment both for hardware and software.
