Agile environments increasingly are becoming a popular option for organizations large and small. Although initially created as a solution for small software development teams with short budgets and complex scopes, it’s been adopted (and refashioned) for all industries and team sizes. https://devops.com/promoting-purpose-in-agile-environments/

Agile environments foster meaning and cooperation. In agile environments, you must ask questions that help expand how your team thinks and operates.

The need for a new agile approach in government projects

In today’s fast-paced world, it is hardly surprising that by the time a project conceived in 2011 nears completion, the requirements and technology have changed. However, unless the government recalibrates its approach to major projects, we are doomed to more of the same. https://www.openaccessgovernment.org/new-agile-approach-government-projects/64478/

Jim Berrisford, Step5, explains why he believes that government projects are often too long, too slow, too inflexible and calls for a new agile approach

Why Budgeting Cripples Agile And Innovation

Budgeting as practiced in most large organizations today is cumbersome, expensive, time-consuming and wasteful. It often cripples innovation. It is riddled with gaming-the-system. It encourages unnecessary spending and fosters sub-optimal targets. It hides accountability. https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2019/04/28/why-budgeting-cripples-agile-and-innovation/#440d3cf358f3

The budget is difficult to fix because it interlocks with internal mindsets, strategy, structure, accounting, HR and executive compensation

AI technology: When to build, when to buy

Artificial intelligence is fast becoming a business imperative. Whether it's to improve efficiency, find new business opportunities, or keep up with the competition. What do you think? https://www.cio.com/article/3387618/ai-technology-when-to-build-when-to-buy.html

Deciding whether to buy off-the-shelf AI or build your own AI-based business solutions is a complex equation based on available talent, business needs, desired outcomes, lock-in comfort and a rapidly evolving market.

Women in Tech: Seeing Is Believing

The gender gap in the technology industry is hardly a secret. Any one walking the halls of a tech conference will have to try not to notice the disproportionate ratio of men to women. And the abundance of organizations and non-profits focused on closing that gender gap highlight the need to do something about this disparity rather than waiting for time to close the gap on its own. https://www.nojitter.com/women-communications/women-tech-seeing-believing%20

New initiatives at Enterprise Connect put a spotlight on women working in communications and collaboration technology.
