Agile Share-in-Savings

Here is a great four part series by Chris Cairns and Robert Read, co-founders of 18F.  Can share-in-savings really work given the challenges experienced before?

Bootstrapping the Modernization of Federal Legacy Systems through Agile Share-in-Savings…
by Chris Cairns and Robert L. Read, PhD This is the first post in a four-part series. “Simply put, the missions of government cannot be achieved if only traditional contract methods are used. There is not enough in the budget to make that happen.”ΓÇè-ΓÇèLarry Allen I’ll start by expressing that it’s great to be collaborating with Dr. Rob Read again.

  1. Helen – I agree.  The concept of SIS is interesting but it has its challenges.  In my experience, people get more lost in “bean counting” as opposed to creating real value.  It can potentially work if some parameters are set upfront, such as fixed fees for a range of savings as opposed to exact % for each dollar saved. 

    I’m curious if others have any good examples of how to make SIS work?

    The concept of SiS is really interesting.  Not sure how we’d get round that in the EU space.  Perhaps would be able to use the vehicle of an Innovation Partnership to try something new like this.

    The other side of this modernising agenda is how we implement change effectively.  We know we need to drag some of our IT legacy systems into the modern age but the risk around change is high and certainly here in the UK our track record of successful implementation of large scale IT projects is overshadowed by our high profile failures.

    Next instalment eagerly awaited…..

    What a great series, definitely worth the read. Seems also relevant to one of our other discussions on the degree to which government should be adopting commercial practices. Very interested to hear from any program owners or CIOs out there as to what can make an approach like this successful, along with the friction points that might create barriers.
