We adapted agile development to public health (ADPH) methodology from software engineering and assisted a state public health department to adopt this methodology for a time-sensitive project concerning statewide 2016 drug overdose decedents for West Virginia’s 2018 legislative session. Use of ADPH methodology sustained necessary agreement and participation among stakeholders, facilitated completion of this project under time constraints, and provided a timely data-driven report to guide West Virginia’s opioid response plan.
