Agile Project Management for Government

Brian Wernham has written a new book about leadership skills for the implementation of large-scale public sector projects in months, not years.   It’s called Agile Project Management for Government.

The US Department of Defence recently cancelled a Human Resources project after 12 years of effort. $1bn was written off. That is nearly $100 for every US taxpayer.  Change management expert, Brian Wernham thinks governments should do more to make large scale technology projects more cost effective by going agile.

Agile Project Management For Government by Brian Wernham is a new in depth study into how agile leadership can reduce the risk of failure of public sector projects and vastly reduce expenditure waste.

Essential reading for leaders in central, federal and local governments and within the private sector, this title includes:

  • Reasons why many large change projects have failed and how to ensure yours doesn’t
  • 9 Agile Leadership Behaviours that you need to know about
  • The low-down on US and UK government rules, regulations and strategies
  • How to adapt agile methods for the public sector
  • Features of two popular agile methods: SCRUM & DSDM

Commenting on his reasons for writing the book, Brian says, “In spite of so much support for the idea of agile management in the US, the uptake is very slow in government. I believe that the more flexible and interactive manner of agile management could bring success in the public sector where so many traditional waterfall projects are continuing to fail.”

Brian Wernham is a change management expert with over 30 years experience in adaptive project leadership.

All About Agile

By Kelly Waters

“’Agile’ is one of the biggest buzzwords of the last decade. Agile methods often come across as rather more complicated than they really are. This book is an attempt to unravel that complexity. To simplify the concepts. This book breaks the concepts into small bite-sized pieces that are easy to understand and easy to implement and delivers the message in a friendly and conversational style. Allaboutagile.com is one of the most popular blogs about agile on the web. ”
