Agile Software Collaboration

Note: This group has concluded its work and is closed.

In-house software developer teams have become essential to many of our Members' organizations, but they often work(ed) in isolation, duplicating work already being performed elsewhere. Much can be learned from agile management, source control, continuous integartion and automation. 

This Strategic Programme was closed in June 2017 as it had completed its work and the new workplan 2017-2019 was started.
