Presentation Overview

This will be the second in a series focusing on recognizing and building a "Culture of Innovation" in NYC government. Additional sessions are planned for the innovative LinkNYC, SMART, TreesCount! and WE NYC projects.

Innovation is not just a buzz word; every employee regardless of their role in their organization can innovate! These sessions will allow staff to see why and how others in government have developed innovative solutions in addressing ordinary challenges to the benefit of the people of New York.

This session will focus on innovation in application development. The NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) will present on their SMART application experience using the Agile program management approach. Edmund Lee, DSNY Chief Information Officer, will provide a City agency view of the Agile benefits of a requirements and end user driven approach for development on a complex project.
