Agile Projects in the Government Environment Course

In this powerful two-day course, you’ll grasp the concepts, principles, and structure of Agile development and how these are being applied in the unique federal environment.

A common misconception is that Agility means lack of order or discipline, but that’s incorrect. It requires strong discipline. You must have a solid foundation of practices and procedures in order to successfully adapt Agile in the Government environment, and you must also learn to follow those practices correctly while tying them to pre-defined, rigid quality goals. This workshop gives you the foundation of knowledge and experience you need in order to be successful on your next federal project.

Define principles and highlight advantages and disadvantages of Agile development and how to map them to federal guidelines for IT procurement, development and delivery. Get firsthand experience organizing and participating in an Agile team. Put the concepts you learn to practice instantly in the classroom project. Understand and learn how to take advantage of the opportunities for Agile, while applying them within current government project process requirements.

Specifically, you will

• Consistently deliver better products that will enable your customer’s success

• Reduce the risk of project failure, missed deadlines, scope overrun or exceeded budgets

• Establish, develop, empower, nurture and protect high-performing teams

• Identify and eliminate waste from processes

• Map government project language to Agile language simply and effectively

• Foster collaboration, even with teams that are distributed geographically and organizationally

• Clearly understand how EVM and Agile can be integrated

• Understand the structure of Agile processes that breed success in the federal environment

• Embrace ever-changing requirements

Who Should Attend

Because this is an immersion course and the intent is to engage in the practices every Agile team will employ, this course is recommended for all team members responsible for delivering outstanding software. That includes, but is not limited to, the following roles:

• Business Analyst

• Technical Analyst

• Project Manager

• Software Engineer/Programmer

• Development Manager

• Product Manager

• Product Analyst

• Tester

• QA Engineer

• Documentation Specialist

The Agile Boot Camp is a perfect place for cross functional “teams” to become familiar with Agile methods and learn the basics together. It’s also a wonderful springboard for team building & learning. Bring your project detail to work on in class.

Agile Boot Camp: Practitioner’s Real-World Solutions

Agile is a wonderful springboard for team building & learning

Video Clip: Click to Watch

Presented by the Applied Technology Institute (ATI)

While not a silver bullet, Agile Methodologies are quickly becoming the most practical way to create outstanding software. Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean, Dynamic Systems Development Method, Feature Driven Development and other methods each have their strengths. While there are significant similarities that have brought them together under the Agile umbrella, each method brings unique strengths that can be utilized for your team success. Rarely do organizations adopt one methodology in its pure form. Rather success is achieved by combining the best practices, creating a hybrid approach. The only way to Agile success is practice. Agile is an art more than a science. The art of Agile must be practiced and finely tuned over multiple iterations.

In this three-day Agile Boot Camp you will put the knowledge, skills, tools and techniques taught to work. The classroom will be broken up into Agile teams and your expert instructor will drive each team through the Agile process from Vision down to Daily planning and execution. Your instructor will answer questions with real world experience, as all of our instructors have Agile experience “in the trenches.”

This three-day class is set up in pods/teams. Each team looks like a real-world development unit in Agile with Project Manager/Scrum Master, Business Analyst, Tester and Development. The teams will work through the Agile process including Iteration planning, Product road mapping and backlogging, estimating, user story development iteration execution, and retrospectives by working off of real work scenarios.

Specifically, you will:

• Practice how to be and develop a self-organized team

• Create and communicate a Product Vision

• Understand your customer and develop customer roles and personas

• Initiate the requirements process by developing user stories and your product backlog

• Put together product themes from your user stories and establish a desired product roadmap

• Conduct story point estimating to determine effort needed for user stories to ultimately determine iteration(s) length

• Take into consideration assumed team velocity with story point estimates and user story priorities to come up with you release plan

• Engage the planning and execution of your iteration(s)

• Conduct retrospectives after each iteration

• Run a course retrospective to enable an individual plan of execution on how to conduct Agile in your environment

Who Should Attend?

Because this is an immersion course and the intent is to engage in the practices every Agile team will employ, this course is recommended for all team members responsible for delivering outstanding software. That includes, but is not limited to, the following roles:

Business Analyst, Technical Analyst, Project Manager

Software Engineer/Programmer, Development Manager, Product Manager

Product Analyst, Tester, QA Engineer, Documentation Specialist

What You Will Learn

• Practice and maintain a regular cadence when delivering working software each iteration

• Follow the team approach; start as a team, finish as a team

• Gain knowledge and understanding of Agile principles with context on why they are so important for each team

• Embrace planning from Vision down to Daily level, recognizing the value of continuous planning over following a plan

• Build a backlog of prioritized stories that provides emergent requirements for analysis that also fosters customer engagement and understanding

• Engage in more effective estimating (story points) and become more accurate by being less precise

• Pull together Agile release plans that connect you back to business expectations – including hard date commitments and fixed price models

• Apply Agile testing strategies based on unit and acceptance testing, which creates a bottom up confirmation that your software works

• Avoid the top mistakes made when rolling out Agile practices and how to craft an adoption strategy that will work in your organizational culture
