Copyright Office Announces Webinar on Scaled Agile Framework and the ECS

Issue No. 891 - April 8, 2021

The Copyright Office will host its twelfth public modernization webinar on April 28, 2021, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. eastern time.

As part of its modernization efforts, the Copyright Office is working with its collaborative partners in the Library of Congress’s Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) to implement a framework for applying agile methodology—which advocates early delivery, continual improvement, and flexible responses to change—at an organization-wide level to holistically manage Enterprise Copyright System (ECS) development. The Office is using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)® methodology to prioritize and facilitate this largescale application development effort requiring the cooperation of multiple development teams. During the webinar, panelists will discuss the benefits of this framework in support of ECS development.

Participants must register for this Copyright Office webinar. The Copyright Office launched its modernization webinar series on January 31, 2019.
