Agility in Public Sector IT Projects

Maria Dietel, Moreen Heine


Agile methods are increasingly finding their way into public administrations, especially in IT projects. There is also an increasing amount of research. However, the theoretical foundations of the bureaucratic principles are hardly considered. This paper systematically contrasts the characteristics of agile project management methods with bureaucratic principles. Conflicts are presented and options for practice are explained. An analytical framework is developed, which can also be the basis for empirical research.
