This Part defines the fundamental concepts of Agile Architecture and describes the O-AA approach, the dual Digital and Agile Transformation, architecture development, intentional architecture, continuous architectural refactoring, architecting the Agile Transformation, and Agile governance. A set of axioms for the practice of Agile Architecture is listed in the last chapter.
