In 2014, US Citizenship and Immigration Services Digital Innovation and Development Group, USCIS DID(it), implemented a portfolio level Kanban process to improve efficiency and delivery of operations, maintenance, and enhancements of existing mission critical software applications. This change in the process and culture of the organization resulted in a year over year (FY13 - FY14) 163% increase in deployments, a 145% increase in the number of user stories deployed, and an increase in end-user and developer satisfaction. These annual metrics were all surpassed within the first five months of FY15. This talk will discuss how we were able to accomplish this by adjusting our process, culture, documentation, and organization; and how it led to increasing our effectiveness and processes with proprietary software development.
