Hybrid combines practices from adaptive and predictive-driven approaches that best fit to the project needs, project team skills and organizational maturity. The answer is Yes. Please read:

Thanks for the reply.
I also think the answer is yes. It is precisely because I disagree with some colleagues that I asked the question.

Carlos - Yes, we can perfectly apply a hybrid model. eg; In a software implementation, you can use waterfall for requirement gathering and high level design. For the build and test you can agile/scrum methodology so as to get continuous user feedback on build and get a thoroughly tested product by user

Ramachandran, excellent comment. I can support by experience. For example the SAP Implementation Approach SAPActivate is a hybrid model.

Absolutely. Not all organizations are ready to commit, finding value in adopting 'best approach for the job' type of mentality. Nowaday's, as a professional, we are expected to have the ability to pivot on approach as needed, driven by the specific needs of the project/customer.

Agree. There are Organizations that are very resistant to change, it seems to me that there is a need to start sensitizing those involved.

According to me, It should not be used. There are types of projects where we should use the agile practices, however the hybrid can ruin the beauty of being agile. It has to be known what exactly do you pick up from the traditional methods to answer you better on this.

You mention an important point. If a project requires agility do not have to give more turns. But there are projects that involve phases that require agility and other phases that require a greater level of planning and documentation.
By the way, I see you work in Ecuador. Successes

There is a big problem here. Agile is not a method. And there is not "traditional methodologies". That type of things do not exists. Agile is a practice. Then, you have life cycle models (adaptative or predictive), life cycle process based on those models (iterative, waterfal, etc), methods based on those life cycle process (Scrum, DSDM, SDLC, V, etc) where you can apply any practice (Agile, Lean, TQM, etc). All these stuff is critical to understand. For better references go to PMBOK Guide version 6

An by the way, I have faced situations like I was assigned to World Wide SAP Implementation. If you check the SAP website you will find the SAP Hybrid defined method I have the opportunity to use. But as I mentioned, go to the new PMBOK GUide.

thanks for the reply. I understand Agile is not a methodology, maybe I mispronounced the question.
