Are you interested in learning more about agile project management? Wait… what’s ‘agile’? It’s an approach to working (or managing a project) that is iterative, incremental, and interactive. People who are impacted by a project are engaged from the beginning as well as throughout the project. Tasks are prioritized and completed in short ‘sprints’ of work – typically a duration of two weeks. When an organization adopts agile, it can fundamentally change its culture to be more collaborative, responsive to change, and minimize the risk of large and expensive failures.

The Department of Digital Service and Open Government will be hosting Intro to Agile Project Management with Tony Fortenberry, an expert from Agile Government Leaders. The presentation will provide a basic introduction to agile practices and could be a huge benefit to staff who want to improve their abilities to manage projects large and small. This presentation is part of our Department’s first All Hands Staff meeting but this presentation will be open to all staff members from 12:00pm to 12:45pm. Space is limited, so please let us know if you’d like to attend.

Interested in agile but can’t make it? Agile Government Leaders offers three DIY courses on their website for free! Check them out.
