CivicActions has been actively using agile methodologies for the past several years. As we started our move into the federal government space, we began researching how government uses agile and found there was a strong need for a central, proactive movement to support public service and industry professionals championing and implementing it within the public sector.

As a company, we want to be a part of fostering a strong public sector agile community. Through our research, we discovered many other agile champions, inside and outside government, who felt there was a need to energize and mobilize seasoned professionals as well as those new to agile.

So, we collaborated with federal, state and local government and private sector leaders and helped launch Agile Government Leadership.

AGL’s mission is to foster awareness and create and aggregate resources that will make it easier for those implementing agile development to access information and get support from their peers within the public sector.

To get involved with AGL, join the LinkedIn and Facebook groups, follow on Twitter and visit the website at agilegovleaders.org.

CivicActions is excited to be part of this new movement, and we look forward to cultivating and growing the community so that together we can help build a responsive, engaged government that more efficiently and effectively serves its citizens.
