The tech industry has increasingly implemented agile delivery practices, where detailed design is replaced by very short delivery cycles called sprints. Sprints focus on generating immediate incremental business value in a repeatable way, with deliberate learning and adaptation. In use for over 20 years, agile software development is now considered by many to be a more effective way of delivering software than methods requiring big up-front design.

This approach isn’t very compatible with the long-cycle investment planning and approvals we practice in the public service. Accountability for use of public funds to deliver promised benefits is difficult when we are frequently learning, pivoting, and reprioritizing value to be delivered. Yet, is it better to deliver what was promised or what we learn is needed? Can we apply the learnings of the tech industry to improve investment planning and measurements of success in the public service?
