ABSTRACT
<p>In the basement of the Hoover building in Washington, DC, FBI employees and contractors are working together to create Sentinel, a case-management software system designed to revolutionize how the FBI gathers, stores, and links its data. Learn how the FBI team used agile methods to transform this time-consuming, expensive, and off-track government IT project into a successful program. The FBI's experience in developing Sentinel provides practical insight into how government agencies and other traditionally nonsoftware-development-focused organizations can exploit agile methodologies.</p>
