Public sector agencies across California are successfully incorporating Agile

Public sector agencies across California are successfully incorporating Agile frameworks into their daily responsibilities.

Coming from a background in government with zero exposure to Agile, I recently completed the Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) trainings offered by the KAIP Academy. These certification courses introduced me to the new way of thinking that the Agile discipline embodies.

The trainings were incredibly helpful now that I am working as a consultant for a large California state agency that has incorporated Scrum and Agile into its IT system modernization initiatives. Holding daily standups, working within sprints, and embracing iterative development are all used to accomplish the work.

To see first-hand Agile concepts used in practice by the public sector demonstrates the value of the framework and the benefit of taking a different approach to IT projects. This is something I wouldn’t be able to truly appreciate without the foundation of knowledge from the trainings and an understanding of how Agile works. More importantly, it would have been difficult to perform my job without the concepts obtained in the CSM and CSPO classes.

It’s encouraging to see that Agile can work effectively in a government setting and I hope others without a background in Agile are able to benefit from CSM or CSPO trainings.
