I have been in DC this week speaking at the PSM Aligning Measurement with System Life Cycle Realities event, and the MITRE Software and Supply Chain Assurance Fall Forum. It’s always nice to spend time with people who are passionate about their work and want to make a difference for the warfighter and citizen. A hot topic at both events was enterprise agile and DevOps. It is clear there is a lot of uncertainty on how federal and defense adoption of these approaches will play out at the policy level and with suppliers. I am not surprised by this as we have seen the same questions and issues in the private sector, especially banking, regarding costing and budgeting at the portfolio and enterprise level.
