Conversations with leaders in government innovation, IT modernization, and cultural transformation.

 Upcoming: “Measuring the Success of Agile Contracts in Government”

This event was scheduled for Jan 16, but has been postponed to ensure we have a balanced discussion with both government and industry. Government shutdown has prevented some of the panelists from being available at the scheduled date.

Agile contracts are intended to deliver business value, but this can be challenging to measure objectively. Leaders in modern procurement discuss lessons (many learned the hard way) about specific deliverables and metrics to track the success of work on modular contracts.
