This one day special event will compare Waterfall and Agile Project Management approaches and explore how to integrate both of them into your work environment. This workshop is suitable for all project management skill levels.
If you're between a rock and a hard place – or in project management terms – feeling conflicted between Waterfall and Agile Project Management approaches, this is the course for you. While traditional “Waterfall” project management has grown stronger in a broad spectrum of organizations as an overall approach to work, Agile project management has recently emerged as the newest way to obtain effective delivery. Many organizations find themselves wondering whether they should consider switching approaches. But is Agile better than Waterfall? Are the two mutually exclusive, or can organizations adopt a combination of both to meet their needs? This special event will compare the two and explore how to integrate both of them into your work environment. This workshop is suitable for all project management skill levels.
