In a world where things progress at a rate that is faster than previous years, many people are becoming inclined towards Agile in their day-to-day, and they are leaving the Waterfall method behind. However, agile is fundamentally a revised version of waterfall that focuses more on projects where the dynamics are changing and the time required to market is less. The drawbacks of the waterfall method have been rectified to overcome the challenges faced while using this particular method during project execution - specifically for industries where there is more chaos and the requirements are unclear or changing. This webinar will address the similarities and differences of the Waterfall and Agile methods.

Unfortunately the business of selling PM effort is often in conflict with the profession of delivering PM services.

Every PM, regardless of experience or skill level, will benefit from this session.
