AN AGILE EXPERIENCE ON MINISTRY OF JUSTICE
Slovak government IT is not yet an agile friendly environment. While EU funds are welcomed opportunity to enhance Slovak electronic government, there is a huge bureaucratic burden and strict waterfall processes related to every IT project for government. Moreover, there is a common fear that we buy pig in a poke because agile project does not state a fix scope to be delivered.
We had an opportunity to work on a project that had the defined vision but unclear requirements. Moreover there was the deadline defined by the law. These circumstances helped us to persuade Ministry of Justice to work agile way. We want to share what went well, what failed and to start a discussion how to help establish agile in conservative environment.
