AGL Association

Helping government modernize through shared knowledge and community

.

A shared vision for better government

We are a nationwide group of civic practitioners advocating for better ways of building and delivering government digital services.

We believe government can serve the public more effectively by adopting secure, scalable technologies and agile, collaborative practices — but we also know that change is hard.

So we’ve built a community dedicated to exchanging knowledge, sharing resources, and supporting each other in our efforts to be part of the change we wish to see.

 

Our Story
AGL Summit 2019

People are the drivers of change

AGL Summit 2019

AGL is made up of individuals, working in all kinds of positions and projects throughout government and industry — but all focused on the same mission.

We know that by empowering each person to expand their skills and improve processes within their own teams, we can move the needle faster toward more open and agile government.

Our Mission

From our members

I want government innovators to find each other so they can share tangible information about what’s working for them.

Tim Nolan, Senior Applications Manager at Collin County, TX

AGL is an important enabler to changing the way government does the business of IT. Connecting individuals from different agencies to learn together can help jump start agile practices in new organizations and sustain or reignite it in others.

Ann DunkinAnn Dunkin, Chief Information Officer, County of Santa Clara

This is a wonderful opportunity for folks to talk about the reality of doing work on the ground. We don’t want that info to be siloed in a specific company. It can help everyone.

Julia SchaumburgJulia Schaumburg, Director of Innovation at Jarvus

I see AGL as a national platform bringing together local, state, federal and commercial sectors to open a dialogue on agile and its impact of delivery focused on mission.
