The National Audit Office (UK) and Agile

I’d like to draw attention to a report, published by the UK’s National Audit Office on Governance for Agile delivery, which may be found here: http://www.nao.org.uk/publications/1213/governance_for_agile_delivery.aspx. This includes a contribution from a company I work closely with, along with advice from other private sector companies.

This is one of several reports The NAO intends to publish to help the pursuit of the UK government’s IT strategy and in particular, reducing delivery time by 20% by 2014 and using Agile delivery as a technique, in half of their major ICT-enabled change programmes by April 2013.

If you have any comments on this report, add to the discussion below.
