Neither Agile nor Traditional is better than each other, each has its own place and for many projects, a hybrid of the two is more better than either of them.

Agile or Traditional - How to Choose Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Agile or Traditional Created by: Saqib Javed John (PMP, ACP, ITIL, SCJP, SCWCD)
  • 2. Its your Project, its your Choice…. But here are few points which can help to decide about project framework Traditional Project Management - TPM (Waterfall) o Suitable for the projects which are notoriously hard to control o More suitable for exploration style projects o It works where you don’t have double back, means very simple and clean projects like building a house o Good if a big group of stakeholders is involved as it would be difficult to manage in Agile style of work o Waterfall works well for important software projects where specs would not change like NASA space craft or Air Control System
  • 3. Its your Project, its your Choice…. But here are few points which can help to decide about project framework Agile Project Management - APM o More suitable for Operational or Production Projects o Methods are good in projects where requirements are unclear or evolving as in such situations Traditional methods do not work
  • 4. Rather than using “Selectors”, use “Indicators” …. to decide TPM or APM o Scope; Dynamic o Experimental or Fixed (TPM) or Delivery (TPM) (APM) (APM) o Delivery; Incremental (APM) o Culture; Involved or Passive (APM) or Big Bang (TPM) (TPM) o Team; Stable & Collocated (APM) o Management; Trusting or Controlling (APM) or Fluctuating & Virtual (TPM) (TPM)
  • 5. Rather than using “Selectors”, use “Indicators” …. to decide TPM or APM o Customer; Chaotic o Size; Small (APM) (APM) or Orderly or Huge (TPM) (TPM) o Regulatory; Unregulated (APM) or Regulated o Criticality; Discretionary (APM) or Loss of Life (TPM) (TPM)
  • 6. Rather than using “Selectors”, use “Indicators” …. to decide TPM or APM o TPM more focus on “Processes”, APM focuses on “Approaches and Attitudes” o TPM has a well-defined set of milestones, APM emphasizes Test-Driven Development to reduce mistakes o Waterfall approach idealistic but much more Risky o TPM is classical music and APM is Jazz
  • 7. Rather than using “Selectors”, use “Indicators” …. to decide TPM or APM Both methods are viable for “How the work get done ” o So neither Agile nor Traditional is better than each other, each has its own place and for many projects, a hybrid of the two is more better than either of them.
