Agile Government Leadership has launched a new online course focused on the government product owner.
Agile Government Leadership has created a AGL Academy to help public sector professionals (and their supporting vendors) learn more about agile development practices in the context of government.
Leaders from 18F and the White House Presidential Innovation Fellowship program presented at the 2015 Lean Startup Conference on “Lean Methodologies When the Organization is the Product,” and this is the best video you’ll watch on getting a holistic approach to building a lean startup inside government.
The 18F Delivery team released a “Partnership Playbook” that aims to help federal agencies understand what to expect when working with 18F, and the gem within is play number two, “We work with an empowered product owner.”
Last week, I was in New Orleans for the CivicActions corporate retreat, and presented to the team on the work done around Agile Government Leadership, and I wanted to share some of this here because, while there’s still much to do around changing government project management practices, we’ve accomplished a great deal over the past 18 months since its inception.
Agile Government Leadership wants to learn more about the state of agile project management in government, its challenges and successes, and how AGL can better support the community.
Agile Government Leadership is developing a “State of Agile Government” survey and is looking for feedback on best questions to ask.
Agile Government Leadership will host its next AGL Live, “Agile Government and the State of Maine,” featuring Maine Director of Business Process Management Douglas Averill.
According to organizers, the event is for “executives, program managers, and engineers considering or actively implementing DevOps at their organization.”
Agile Government Leadership will host its next AGL Live Google Hangout On Air with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Chief Information Officer Mark Schwartz this Thursday, April 16, 4-5:00 p.m. ET.
Join Agile Government Leadership tomorrow via Google Hangout on Air for a discussion on how Salt Lake City is implementing agile development.
It was an excellent discussion that went a little beyond the basics, and there were a number of questions we didn’t get to, but overall it’s a helpful introduction that includes some great panelist anecdotes.
I’m fortunate to engage with many great people on a number of rewarding projects, but the work I’ve been doing on Agile Government Leadership has been particularly fulfilling, both personally and professionally.
The U.S. General Services Administration is working to make it easier for agencies to procure agile development services via a government-wide blanket purchase agreement, which could be finalized as early as the end of this year.
Earlier this year, I began doing research work with CivicActions on agile development in government — who was doing it, how and what the needs were to successfully get it deployed.
