The Importance of Governance with Incremental Modernization

Mar 14, 2017
From the Government Institute

Agile, modular, incremental, and iterative are some of the development methodologies currently being employed in the government health and human services industry.

When planning for an incremental approach to modernization, particularly one that will be integrated across programs, establishing good governance is critical to success.

This article, originally appearing in the February 2017 edition of APHSA's Policy & Practice magazine, describes five critical elements for governing incremental and agile modernization projects:

  1. Establishment of a clear project charter
  2. Active participation by senior executives
  3. Clear decision-making protocols
  4. Effective reporting
  5. Proactive risk management and issue resolution
