The Agile Delivery for Agencies, Programs & Teams (ADAPT) group is composed of industry and government representatives who are interested in advancing the adoption of agile methods in software acquisition.

The purpose of ADAPT is to facilitate industry-government interaction in policy, legal/contractual and technical areas directly related to understanding, assessing and implementing agile methods in programs, projects and procurement. Such interaction is intended to promote understanding of agile methods, when they are appropriate for use, and how they may be implemented within the context of information system acquisition.


The objectives of ADAPT are to:

  • Build a community of practitioners and proponents of agile methods to include the acquisition arena and to showcase proven techniques, and associated concepts, tools and training.
  • Promote understanding of agile methods and their implications, adoption requirements, and benefits.
  • Host agile workshops series that focuses on bringing together recognized experts in the agile domain to address specific agile adoption challenges in information systems acquisition and make the outcomes publicly available.

ADAPT encourages the community to send us topics of interest in planning content for Open Meetings and the Annual Agile in Government Summit.
