When transforming to agility and value driven practices, which approach is best for Government organizations? Transformation decisions cannot be made by consultants not conversant with the internal operations or history of the organization or influenced by the latest rage - as the consequences of failure are the loss of tax payer dollars we are entrusted with. Organizational leaders need their own framework to make decisions about implementing agile practices so an informed decision is possible. This discussion centers on rationale to either Adopt a framework, thoughtfully Adapt an organization to agile practices, or employ Coaching to achieve success. Adopt: The various agile frameworks are considered against the Government posture to guide decisioning. Adapt: Mapping Agile practices to existing framework to achieve value. Coaching: Employing coaching expertise of leadership and individual teams to achieve value. Each of these three primary approaches will be discussed as well as time, cost, and measurement methods actually used in organizations to determine success. The practices of weighted decision making, backlogs, release management, retrospectives and the Acquisition Lifecycle Framework overlay the decisioning process.
