StateScoop published an article on AGL’s recently launched agile academy for government executives. The free online course covers the basics and benefits of agile development and project management in the public sector context. This offering is one of several agile courses in AGL Academy, which also includes instruction for project managers and product owners in government.
From the article:
The four-lesson course begins with an introduction to agile and transitions into more advanced topics and further resources. The course contains HTML- and PDF-based lesson materials supplemented by video lessons. There are a lot of resources on agile out there, but not much for the government “change maker,” said Elizabeth Raley, director of professional services for CivicActions and AGL Working Group member.
“We’re hoping that this is really valuable for people who either know a little bit about agile and maybe their agency is already using it and they need to get more up to speed or more specifically an executive whose agency has not gone agile yet, but who has been hearing about the benefits and the value and wants to start driving that change,” Raley said.
