The Agile Defense Adoption Proponents Team (ADAPT) is composed of industry and government representatives who are intersted in advancing the adoption of agile methods in DoD acquisition.
The purpose of ADAPT is to facilitate industry-government interaction in policy, legislative, legal and technical areas directly related to understanding, assessing and implementing agile methods in programs, projects and procurements. 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 Defense acquisition.
The ADAPT Executive Committee* is composed of:
Suzette Johnson, Northrop Grumman Contact
Richard Cheng, Excella Consulting Contact
Ken Mills, Version One Contact
Richard Turner, Stevens Institute Contact
Matt Vandergrift, ManTech Contact
The objectives of ADAPT are to:
- Build a community of practitioners and proponents of agile methods
in the DoD to include the acquisition arena including 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 the Defense acquisition system and make the outcomes publicly available.
ADAPT is currently planning content and presentations for 2013 Open Meetings. For information see ADAPT Open Meetings page or contact Tammy Kicker at tkicker@afei.
