An InformationWeek Government Webcast:

Realizing agility with discipline: Addressing the needs of agile adoption in a government environment

Duration: 60 minutes

Many agencies are adopting, or want to adopt Agile practices to drive faster delivery, higher quality, and improved collaboration. Government agencies spend billions per year on IT investment and often projects run over budget, over time, out of scope and do not deliver the required outcomes. An iterative approach to software delivery allows for a more collaborative and constant evolution of requirements, informing team direction and driving refinements more frequently and earlier in the development process, ensuring relevant and timely delivery of critical software. Despite the benefits, agencies have adoption challenges that are unique to the government environment.

This webcast features IBM Rational Software's Vice President of Strategy and Delivery, Michael O'Rourke, as he share insights about IBM's own agile transformation to streamline software development and delivery, while addressing the need for disciplined governance and overcoming difficult and unique challenges. IBM Rational's Chief Agile Methodologist, Richard Knaster, will discuss the most relevant agile practices for government projects and will leave you with strategies your organization can leverage to start adopting agile methods today. In this webcast you will:

  • Hear insights on the challenges experienced 1st hand in a large scale agile transformation
  • Understand the benefits of moving to an iterative approach to software delivery
  • Learn agile tips for overcoming even the most difficult challenges in the Government environment
