    In the simplest of terms, software development decisions for commercial organizations can be reduced to a calculation of whether the cost of developing the software will be outweighed by the estimated revenue generated or costs saved by the software.  However, as Mark Schwartz points out in his book, “The Art of Business Value Paperback” this simple explanation is insufficient for commercial organizations, and not applicable for government and other non-commercial organizations for whom the impact of software isn’t primarily measured in terms of revenue.  

    In this session participants will experience a simulation that has been created to explore these question of how to make decisions about investments to deliver mission and business value by examining the impact of these decisions on the performance of organizations in changing environments.

    Federal Agile Transitions: Lessons in Endurance from the Front Line

    Intermediate
    Achieving greater agility is a goal among many federal agencies. While many federal CIOs may institute agile practices from the top down, others may promote self-organizing teams that bring about change from the bottom up. These approaches represent ends of a spectrum, any point on which agile transformation require focus on enabling team empowerment.
     
    In the federal workspace, governance and oversight vary greatly from one agency or office to another. As such, federal leaders should seek to implement strategies that will navigate typical organizational roadblocks to agile adoption, such as a forced separation of duties, vertical authority structures, and misaligned incentives. Macro Solutions uses a tailored approach to identify organizational impediments, develop successful agile implementation strategies, and enable project teams in each unique organization.
