Scaling Agile in the Government Programs

The U.S. and international federal, regional and local governments have a mandate from the public to spend money on software and systems in the most cost-efficient and productive manner. As a result, many have found their way to SAFe, and many are reporting gains in productivity and costs savings that far exceed even some of the extraordinary benefits from the commercial sector. In this talk, Richard Knaster, Author, SAFe Fellow and Principal Consultant will discuss strategies for adopting SAFe in government and will present successful case studies and the critical topics of acquiring solutions with Agile contracting, multivendor teams and programs, governance, audit, and earned value management.
