    Agile based methods have been proven successful in commercial companies.  From small startups to large companies, the patterns for Agile methods have been established.  However, can these concepts work in the Federal government?  In a world that revolves around oversight, governance, hierarchy, traditional management, and risk aversion, can Agile work? Should the government try and would it make a difference.

     

    In this talk, we explore Agile efforts in the Federal government.  From the Office of Personnel Management to Department of Defense, new Agencies like Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and established Agencies like Census, we’ll explore:

     

    • Why are Federal agencies trying Agile?
    • What are the benefits realized?
    • What are the biggest issues and pitfalls?
    • How do Federal agencies manage and govern these programs?
    • What does the future hold?

     

    At the end of this session, attendees will have a sense of how Agile is changing and could change the way our governments delivers on their missions.
