Agile Government Leadership recently posted the Agile Government Handbook. It’s a nice primer to Agile for govvies. It tackles the first issue of describing Agile in the context of government. The post introducing it provides a good background:
“One of the recurring issues I heard, from both government employees and contractors, was that there needed to be a basic understanding of what Agile was in the context of government. There is an “Agile divide” between those who fully grok and are practicing it, and those who hear and process it only as a buzzword or passing trend or something unrelated to functions outside of technology project management.
