Agile Project Management For Government

Books, CDs, etc

The US Department of Defense canceled a Human Resources project after 12 years of wasted effort: $1bn was written off, costing every US taxpayer $100. The UK government terminated an emergency fire services project, and £469m was written off in a single year. Just one failure amongst many…

Large government technical development projects self-destruct on a regular basis despite intense political scrutiny and detailed audit.

These failures must not continue.

This book explains how agile leadership reduces the risks of failure in Government. It is essential reading for leaders in central, federal and local government and for senior managers in companies with government clients.

Highlights include:

  • Reasons why many large change projects have failed and how to ensure yours doesn’t
  • The 9 Agile Leadership Behaviors for success!
  • The low-down on US and UK government rules, regulations and strategies
  • How to lead successful projects using Scrum and DSDM

Written by change management expert Brian Wernham, who has more than 30 years’ experience in adaptive project management, this guide is required reading for leaders in central, federal and local government and for senior managers in companies with government clients.
