Agile Goes Way Beyond Software

Agile Methods have been used for some time to develop software applications with a great deal of success, however, this presentation focuses on its application for infrastructure projects, IT project management, and service and product development initiatives.

Our speaker, Dan Murphy, has had considerable success using this approach within the Federal Government to develop new IT services as it relates to the development of IT Shared Services, and believes a more global enterprise approach is required making Agile a much more transformational element within the GC and other large public and private sector organizations.

Mr. Murphy, President of DJM Systems, is a leader in Government of Canada Information Technology strategy. While at Cisco Systems in the late 1990’s he led the development of the “Shared Services” concept and pushed it into existence at the political level.

More recently, as an advisor to the Senior ADM of Transformation at Shared Services Canada, he has spearheaded the movement toward cloud computing in the Canadian Federal Government through the implementation of benchmarking programs, Agile implementation approaches and competitive marketing techniques.

    Dan Murphy, was informative and engaging and provided an interesting perspective of how to postion AGILE within Government accounts. GOC Procurement, Budget process, operational silo's all create hurdles. Executive buy into the process was clearly key to his success!

    Very interesting to hear the experience from a non-software experience. I've been working with my wife to try and get her to use some of the components of Agile at her office, also a non-software environment.

    I've updated the map link to indicate the correct location.

    Here is a street view of the door through which you must pass to get to the Mercury Grove offices. It is the reddish door underneath the dentist sign. http://g.co/maps/naz77

    I believe that is right. (between 1st and 2nd on Bank street) I haven't been to this office either though. I also noticed that the original map link seemed to be putting us at 202 Bank, which is downtown, and not the correct location.

    I think the map link posted above is messed up. Can someone confirm if this is the right map link?
