About the Program

Agile Government does not need to be an oxymoron. In fact, Agile is congruent with our Government leaders' directives and acquisition regulations. However, execution often lags the setting of direction and the passing of laws and regulations. Large and bureaucratic organizations are slow to change. This session looks at what is driving Agile in the Government, the essential criteria for success with Agile, and common challenges and obstacles..
