Agile Government Contracting Post-conference Workshop

Agile Government Contracting

As government agencies rapidly adopt Lean-Agile practices, waterfall-centric contracting approaches have been a recurring impediment to success. Traditional incentives and performance measures have less application in a world that emphasizes fast feedback, adaptability, and a high degree of collaboration between government and industry partners. This workshop explores new ways to look at contracting that enables Lean-Agile development. We will explore the goals of Lean-Agile contracts, how the FAR and other acquisition regulations support agility, pros and cons of alternative contract types when acquiring Agile services, good patterns and anti-patterns, government authored resources for Lean-Agile contracting, and examples from actual government Lean-Agile contracts.
