Rescheduled: The Case for Project Risk Management: In Predictive (Traditional) vs. Adaptive (Agile) Life Cycle Approaches

Nov 21, 2019 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Although the project failure rate has seen improvement over the last decade or so, roughly half continue to fail. As such, project risk management [which is designed to address risks that contribute to project failure] has gained significant interest over the same period. While perhaps one of the more challenging knowledge areas of the PMBOK®, project risk management is a key competency for professional project managers. This webinar will contrast project risk management across today’s two primary project life cycle approaches – Predictive (Traditional) and Adaptive (Agile) Project Life Cycles.

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.
