Software industries are always following Adaptive life cycles method - is it true?

The only thing you can always say is that "always" never applies to anything. :)

I have worked on software projects that used the predictive model for software development and didn't employ any sort iterative approach (not for a firm dedicated to software). Usually smaller firms that lack a strong established team and have a couple of people building custom software and they push for the full release package.

In firms with the core goal of developing software, it seems more common to use iterative development

Hello Moloy,

It depends.
1) if the scope,time and cost defined in early life cycle (then it is a predictive=waterfall=plan-driven)

2) if the project goals are clear at the beginning however the product is not clear then it adaptive (change-driven= agile)

3) It might be hybrid (predictive +adaptive)

I will give an example ( for Example WEB application it more adaptive in my opinion as it always change ).

No - there are NO absolutes in project management. There are many companies in the software field who are still utilizing a deterministic/traditional/waterfall approach.

Not always, but sometimes.

*Always, *Never, *Best .... words to be wary of.

Like Kiron states, there simply are no absolutes. That said, as an adjective, yes, we are adaptive :)

I agree with Kiron and others on this. It really depends on several things.

I agree with all. I would say mostly but not always.
