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.
