The Agile Government Leadership group did a tremendous amount of research around what was needed to help government better understand and adopt Agile development practices, and the biggest “ask” was always around awareness and training.

People often voiced that they understand the general principles of Agile, but weren’t sure how to get started.

In an effort to better provide a solid foundation for this, and as part of AGL’s mission to bring Agile awareness to government, we created the Agile Government Handbook.

The handbook provides an overview of the agile development methodology, benefit, roles, key terms, checklists and resources that begin to help demystify Agile in the context of government.

We are very excited about this resource and, in true Agile fashion, will continue to iterate and build on it with the support and involvement of the community.

If you would like to re-purpose the handbook for your teams, you can download all of the files at the GitHub repo.

If you have suggestions on how we can make this better, please share your feedback here. For those of you interested in learning more about Agile government, be sure to join the AGL LinkedIn group, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to the newsletter.
