Forward-thinking leaders across the public sector are spearheading an Agile transformation by implementing modern solutions to boost time-to-market, optimize team productivity, and navigate time and budget constraints. Defense agencies are shifting away from traditional procurement processes and are developing Agile, mission-driven workflows as the foundation of their dynamic modernization strategies. By adopting this cutting-edge approach to acquisition, public sector entities can consistently evaluate their practices for functionality, strengthen trust with internal and external stakeholders, and foster an environment of continuous learning and growth.

How are government officials harnessing the Agile methodology to build repeatable processes that allow for continuous improvement of their programs? And how are they applying this scalable approach to build a more flexible and resilient agency? Join GovExec and Scaled Agile as we explore how government and industry leaders are leading the paradigm shift from outdated procurement strategies to Agile governance, presenting an exciting opportunity to revolutionize the public sector.

Attendees will learn:

  • How the Agile approach is revamping the way software requirements and acquisition and contractor strategies are written – plus other innovative benefits the framework offers 
  • Best practices for placing the citizen and warfighter at the center of adaptive agency policies and regulations
  • Mindsets government leaders can adopt to be transparent and authentic in the successful deployment of Agile methodologies
