Earlier this week, I gave a primer on the new U.S. Digital Services Playbook and TechFAR at the Agile DC conference. The presentation was titled, Agile Gov Playbook: Dissecting the New White House TechFAR Handbook.

In this presentation I reviewed the history of Agile procurement, the relevant Digital Services Playbook “plays,” the TechFAR handbook objectives, key components and recommendations for getting agile adopted in federal agencies.

The talk served mainly as an introduction the massive changes occurring in federal procurement, and how these two documents are making it much easier for agencies to buy and implement Agile throughout the entire government.
