Agile methodology is now the preferred method for most software development and digital transformation projects, but it still has major weaknesses in the civil service environment.

Within the UK civil service, there are inherent challenges when delivering agile digital project management techniques against fixed and pre-defined business planning processes and budgets. Having repeatedly burnt their fingers during the era of pre-defined, monolithic IT developments, practitioners have learned that in the digital world, the only sure way to ensure that a system meets user needs is to build it hand-in-hand with those who’ll be operating and accessing it.
