Upskilling Government Staff – Government Health Agency


A government client had requested support to train staff in the roles-based Scaled Agile Framework, which would assist government staff in learning about Agile and leading their transformations. While the agency vendors had proficiently executed Agile models, the government staff lacked Agile competencies and did not fully understand their roles as Product Owners and Product Managers. As a result, the following challenges occurred:

  • Misunderstanding of the Product Owner’s Role
  • Poor understanding of the Agile mindset and scaling principles
  • Poor execution of Program Increment/quarterly Planning
  • Vendors are setting priorities instead of government staff
