Re: Agile and government do not mix

So true, speaking as someone who previously did system engineering for a public facing Gov organisation. Turns out most of the techies were doing Agile-like within their teams even before the high and mighty picked up on those trendy words. These are the same people who would not allow us to take up a discounted offer from a software supplier and make us go through procurement and end up paying more than even the standard price (as they went with a third party to supply us the same licence) and cause a delay of 6 months on a project.
