Published on

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

  1. 1. Agile or Traditional Created by: Saqib Javed John (PMP, ACP, ITIL, SCJP, SCWCD)
  2. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
