Applying Agile in the DoD: Third Principle
August 2013 • Podcast
A discussion of the application of the third Agile principle, "Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale."
“It has become evident within the DoD community and the government in general that we need to do software delivery sooner. So, how do we do that?”
In this episode, the third in a series by Suzanne Miller and Mary Ann Lapham exploring the application of agile principles in the Department of Defense (DoD), the two researchers discuss the application of the third principle, "Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale."
