We wanted to provide a solution that both addresses the specific issues faced by those seeking to implement Agile in a Federal environment and introduces best practices to managing them.”
Tysons Corner, VA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Management Concepts, Inc, the nation’s leading provider of practical, effective training to the federal workforce, has introduced a new and innovative Agile Project Management course designed specifically for the Federal workforce.
With the ever-increasing scrutiny surrounding the management of major Federal projects, examining how the adoption of Agile can improve project delivery and complement and enhance “traditional” project management rigor is top of mind with Federal government program managers.
"Agile Project Management for the Federal Environment" was built from the ground up to specifically address the application of Agile techniques to federal projects. It goes beyond Agile's traditional focus on software development and information technology (IT) to include applications in acquisitions, program management, and non-IT domains.
“Several agencies have started requiring the use of Agile on Federal projects,” said Steven Benjamin, Executive Director of Federal Project and Program Management at Management Concepts. “Agile has been successfully used in the private sector for over a decade, and with slight adjustments, can be applied to federal projects. We wanted to provide a solution that both addresses the specific issues faced by those seeking to implement Agile in a Federal environment and introduces best practices to managing them.”
