This course features examples of where agile acquisition has been successfully implemented in the Federal Government. The lessons learned, success stories, and the opportunity to question the trailblazers themselves should give everyone a great foundation to begin. There is a lot of talk about Agile - but what is it, and why are new procurement methods and strategies needed to successfully implement it? Agile Software Development is a mindset that requires a completely new way of thinking about an entire development process from the moment a need is identified through execution. In order to procure for these types of services, it is important to understand what Agile is and what it is not, what the risks are in the process and how they are mitigated, and what value success looks like. Traditional procurement methods for "waterfall" software implementations lack the flexibility to take advantage of the benefits of time, schedule, and cost that Agile Software Development methods can bring to the Federal Government. For this reason, the acquisition workforce needs to make its processes agile using innovative and creative solutions to procure these services while maintaining compliance with the FAR and Federal Law. This course identifies several methods and strategies that have been and can be applied to achieve this goal. There is a post-assessment that must be passed at 100% in order to obtain the CLPs. You will have an unlimited number of attempts to earn the passing score. This is a FAITAS LMS course.
