I agree that integrated testing is key. I'm curious how this works at the government level because of privacy issues -- who is the product tested on? Are there restrictions as to who can have access to the unfinished product for testing?

re: What I Didn't Say About Agile
One wonders whether Agile had a better chance of working at VA, where former CIO Baker had an overarching IT authority that most other agency CIOs don't enjoy. That said, it's hard to imagine, given the pace of technology change, for committing to any IT project that doesn't incorporate an Agile approach.

re: What I Didn't Say About Agile
Agile is just another fad so that consultants can make money. I've been on plenty agile projects and no matter how they are run and with methodology they use they all suffered from the "we can change anything at any time" think. Today we want this and tomorrow we want the opposite and that is perfectly fine, even when in two weeks we change our minds again. Agile is the cop out for utter indecision, lack of leadership, and hiding behind "the team".
