General Services Administration Administrator Dan Tangherlini on agile software development in government:

“We work in a world in which there are certain expectations … that militate toward the waterfall. We spend 20 years learning how to do the waterfall. We build agencies and consultancies around waterfalling. And now everyone shows up and says, ‘that’s out, ‘” Tangherlini said. But getting agencies to pivot to agile software development is going to take time and effort. Tangherlini said, “We have to recognize, as Yogi Berra said, ‘Rome wasn’t burnt in a day.'”
