Limited Capacity seats available

Providing an overview of agile implementation within several government agencies and provide lessons learned and recommendations from that experience. This will include personal experience with DHS, IRS, USCIS, DNDO and other agencies in their agile journey. The agile journey has been different for each of these organizations and some have been more successful at adopting the agile mindset. We will draw on our personal experiences with these adoptions to make recommendations for agency wide adoption of agile practices and mindsets.
We will provide recommendations for cultural alignment, technical adoption, governance and oversight for agencies looking to transform the way that IT is delivered within their organization. We will also comment on different options for contractor and federal employee roles and interactions that make adoption and success more likely.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn what has and has not worked within federal agencies adopting agile
  • Learn what lessons should and can be applied to a federal agency looking to adopt agile
  • Governance models that work inside of a federal agency for agile programs
