Agile Project Management for Government

 

The indispensable guide to agile leadership for the public sector

 

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.

Review:

“a unique, insightful and readable leadership perspective of agile government”

Dot Tudor
Winner of Best Agile Coach Award 2011


“A forceful, evidence-based argument for the role of agile within government.”

Andrew Bragg
CEO, Association for Project Management (APM)

“A wonderful collection of real case studies … a stream of practical advice … as broad a scope as one could hope for … A broad view sorely needed in a field long dominated by dogmatic developers and code-centric softcrafters … I found myself ‘hooked’ on this and read it cover to cover in a weekend.”
- Tom Gilb, the ‘grandfather’ of evolutionary project management.

“An enlightening insight into grand failures and successes in government projects.”
Neil Coutts, Director, Project Management Institute (PMI)
