Transformation in the Federal Government Starts with Contracts

January 10, 2019

Transformation in the Federal Government is often thought of as slow and daunting. However, Chris Palmisano and Greg Pfister have noticed a real push from leadership to adopt Agile principles and it’s showing up in an unlikely place: contracts.

“If that contract is not structured in a way that shows clear alignment on Agile principles with the right support from leadership… it becomes very difficult to correct course and really promote those ideas and principles”.

Like most large organizations, the Federal Government struggles with leadership buy-in. But with an aging workforce being replaced by college graduates who are not trained in non-object-oriented programing languages and are not versed, nor care about, “plan-driven models”– things are on the verge of change.
