Originally used by native users to solve their myriad problems in getting things done in day to day operations, it is now being adapted more systematically and formally as a method to improve and innovate. How does the concept and practice of “Jugaad” relate to formal project management principles and knowledge? Traditional project management through its bodies of knowledge has espoused a structured methodology. One of the main criticism on the emphasis of detailed planning has been its unsuitability to situations and projects which are uncertain or developmental in nature.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.

Question: I am the project manager on a large change to the company that we have to sync up with another even larger company.
