AGL in FedScoop: Fed, state, local IT leaders launch agile academy

FedScoop published an article highlighting the launch of AGL’s free online course to train government workers in agile methods.

The course aims to help government project managers in the specific context of the public sector. It provides checklists, study material, and exercises they can do with their teams.

From the article:

Spun out of the already-established Agile Government Leadership network, the volunteer-run AGL Academy will feature online courses tailored to specific job positions in government. Currently, the academy features a three-week course for project managers designed to teach agile development practices in a government context.

Elizabeth Raley, one of the members of AGL’s working group and the director of professional services for CivicActions — a design and development firm specializing in working for governments — told FedScoop she and the rest of the AGL working group saw a need for governments to have a resource to help move them toward better agile development.
