Maximizing Agile's Effectiveness in Government: A Four-Step Decision Framework

By: Thom RubelAdjunct Research Advisor, Susan MartinAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC Perspective, written for government CIOs and program executives, presents a context and case for government Agile adoption and discusses popular decision criteria for selecting a Waterfall approach or an Agile approach and provides advice on how to make the best-fit decision. It presents a four-step decision framework that empowers agency technology leaders to choose a strategy that maximizes efficiency and adaptability while reducing project risk. This IDC Perspective is concerned with digital transformation, innovation, and application development designed to achieve those goals.

"Many government IT organizations continue to apply outdated or unfounded selection criteria that lead to the wrong decision," says Thom Rubel, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network. "As a result, they experience increased project risk, time, and cost and forfeit the opportunity to benefit from Agile's adaptability that is critical to accelerating government digital transformation to meet citizens' expectations."
