HBR: It's Time to End the Battle between Waterfall and Agile
Too many project leaders think rigidly about Waterfall and Agile project management methodologies and believe they must choose between the two. But many projects — especially those with diverse stakeholder needs and complex structures — benefit from a hybrid approach that combines aspects of Waterfall and Agile. The rise of hybrid methods isn’t tied to a particular time or event; instead, they have evolved organically as a response to the needs of modern, complex projects. A review of the key components of Waterfall and Agile allows project leaders to select among them to build a hybrid approach based on the unique demands of each project.
- Understand the fundamental principles, methodologies, and characteristics of Agile, Waterfall, and Hybrid project management approaches.
- Learn how to assess the specific needs of a project to determine which project management approach—Agile, Waterfall, or Hybrid—is most suitable.
- Attendees will learn how different project management approaches can be leveraged to optimize resource utilization and mitigate risks, illustrated through real-world examples like Tesla and Philips.
