The Government Digital Service has mandated the use of agile techniques for the development of new services for over a decade. Authorities that have signed up to the Digital Declaration have also committed to working in an agile way. Yet we see agility adoption is difficult and some organisations have really struggled to make it work.
In this talk battle-hardened agility advocate and technology leader Tom Styles will take you through the under lying principles of complexity and why agile techniques are so crucial to successful digital delivery. He'll also illustrate why some tradition project management techniques can suppress innovation.
The talk is perfect for digital leaders and implementation teams who have tried agile or want to start. Anyone scratching their heads about fitting agile development techniques into a traditional project management focused organisation will also find much useful thinking in Tom's presentation.
