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.

Richard Cheng, Excella Consulting   Contact
Ken Mills, Version One  Contact

  • 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.
