Noon Keynote | Room: 1151
Steve Mayner, SAFe Fellow and Principal, Consultant, Scaled Agile, Inc.
Not long ago “Agile” was considered in the halls of government to be a wild-wild-west approach to development that only worked in Silicon Valley. Certainly, these methods could not provide the rigor and oversight needed for developing the high assurance systems commonly built by federal agencies? Over the last three years that picture has changed dramatically. Most government leaders are no longer debating “if” Agile applies in their context, but rather “how” and “where” it can be implemented. In this talk, Dr. Steve Mayner, SAFe Fellow and Principal Consultant at Scaled Agile will provide a “state of the union” survey of the Agile Lean adoption landscape in the U.S. federal government, including the most recent events and trends. The presentation will conclude with a look forward to emerging patterns for Agile, Lean, and DevOps in the public sector in the U.S. and around the world.
