Same Team! Same Team! How We Built a Successful Government - Contractor Relationship at the VA

Shane Russell, Engineering Team Lead, United States Digital Service at Veterans Affairs

DESCRIPTION: Government IT projects are a collaboration between public servants and contractors, but most are so fraught with issues that they hardly look like collaborations at all. For more than year, a development team at the VA has produced results using a radically integrated approach. We sit in the same room, we have retrospectives together, we write requirements together. We see ourselves as "one team." Attendees will hear from both the public servant and contractor perspectives, leaving with practical tips for building cross-functional units, and how to give contractors the right problems and the autonomy to solve them.    

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone involved in delivering government IT projects: public servants who work with contractors, and contractors who work with public servants.
