Agilex' Larry Albert Receives The AFCEA Bethesda Excellence Award For Outstanding Industry Executive

CHANTILLY, Va., May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Agilex, a leading provider of mission and technology solutions to the national security, homeland security, healthcare and public sectors, announced today that Larry Albert was named the Outstanding Industry Executive by the 2012 AFCEA Bethesda Government-Wide Initiatives Excellence Awards.  Albert is the president of Agilex' healthcare sector business and is recognized as one of the founders of the company.  Sponsored by AFCEA Bethesda, these annual awards honor government executives as well as an industry representative for their leadership of IT initiatives having a government-wide impact. 

"This is a well-deserved honor for Larry as he has worked tirelessly to advance the mission of our clients throughout government," said Agilex Vice Chairman Jay Nussbaum.  "He was an early advocate of agile and has led us to fully capitalize on its potential.  Under his leadership, we have helped a number of government agencies adopt agile to transform their software development and program management processes.  Their success has demonstrated how vital agile can be to the federal government, as it works to further improve the performance and accountability of major IT programs."

The AFCEA Bethesda Government-Wide Initiatives Excellence Awards recognizes individuals or groups whose contributions in information technology have significance beyond their organization. These contributions represent achievements that advance business and citizen interaction, leading to improved effectiveness, cost-savings and leadership that meet national priorities and serve as a model of excellence government-wide.

Albert was recognized as the Outstanding Industry Executive for his leadership in helping government agencies adopt agile software development practices and principles.  He has partnered with a number of federal agencies to implement agile and adapt it to their unique requirements.  Through these successful engagements, best practices for the use of agile within government have been established.  Publicly, he has been a prominent advocate for agile as well. 

"The stakes today for government, particularly in the healthcare sector, couldn't be higher," commented Albert.  "With today's more dynamic missions and tighter budgets, we need to reconsider how we manage and execute major programs.  What we have found is these more iterative and collaborative approaches are a much better fit for the challenges and constraints that government faces today.  Our success has been driven by our team's zeal and commitment, as well as the confidence and trust of a number of visionary clients."
