• Strawman Draft Developed “Agile Project Management in R&D”
   - Background / Drivers:
   - Congress, OMB, public have a results oriented view . Trend not expected to reverse
   - Current PM requirements and guidance are heavy “brick-and-mortar” flavor
   - Other government agencies and private sector face similar challenges with R&D
   - Tailored appropriately, project management principles, practices, and tools are
     complementary to DOE R&D objectives
   - Emerging trend of “projectizing” R&D included in some Prime Contracts and
     implemented as Best Practices
   - Recognizes need and justification for identifying and communicating Best Practices
     in Project Management/EVMS applications to broaden DOE R&D community              1
