Forbes: Fixing scheduling with Agile at the VA

Forbes on how the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is using Agile:

By 2009, “there was a dramatic break in how we do work,” according to Warren. The fundamental change: introducing firm deadlines for all projects as part of an overall rollout of an Agile approach. In fact, all projects now have a firm time limit. “Six months or less or we won’t do it,” Warren says. Furthermore, the VA also had to accelerate the acquisition process itself. “If the time it takes to buy something is greater than the time it takes to deliver it, it won’t work.”
