AGL group discusses agile development in government

Last month we asked members of the Agile Government Leadership (AGL) group on LinkedIn what they would like AGL to focus on to help facilitate agile development in government. The feedback was varied and interesting and came from people working in state and federal level of the government along with IT consultants.


  • Best practices around contracting for agile projects
  • Challenges that government agencies face when adopting agile, including ongoing collaboration, strong teams, test coverage, data centers, release planning, and consistent user feedback
  • Actual case studies, including success stories
  • How to integrate consistent user feedback when strapped for time and resources
  • Keys to success
  • Government procurement, including developing best practices for contracting officers
  • Recognizing government agencies and leaders successfully implementing agile
  • High profile projects that failed without agile
  • Information on tools
  • Aligning FISMA and IT security with Agile and DevOps

We’ll soon create a content strategy to address this feedback. We’d love to co-create this with the community so, if you’re interested in participating in this effort, subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on Twitter and join the Facebook group to stay updated.

Also, feel free to add more feedback and follow along with AGL’s weekly discussions on LinkedIn.
