May Meeting – Adopting Agile in Government
The next Agile Edmonton user group meeting will be on Thursday, May 17th at noon.
Adopting Agile in Government
As Agile is seeing widespread adoption in many industry sectors, what about within government (public sector) organizations? Can Agile work within governments? What are some challenges and risks to watch out for? This presentation aims to answer these questions and provide guidance based on a number of case studies involving Agile government projects. Along the way we will cover various perspectives on what Agile is, shatter some common misconceptions, and see some compelling evidence for why your next software development effort should use Agile.
