State IT leaders from Colorado, Vermont, and North Carolina discussed how agile methodology is improving government projects on a StateScoop podcast.
With 70 percent of state government IT professionals reporting improvement as a result of agile processes, states are beginning to see clear benefits. In this discussion, IT leaders pointed out that training project stakeholders early on is key to making sure everyone is speaking the same language.
From the article:
“Many folks in the state are getting trained on lean methodology and I do believe that this has been extremely helpful to begin setting the tone for the direction that we want to go in — becoming more focused on continuous improvement in an agile environment,” [according to Sandra Vachon, enterprise project management office director for the state of Vermont].
