Course Summary:

Learn to see Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in a fresh new perspective as complementary to each other rather than competitive in order to get the best of these two worlds!

Many businesses and project managers are faced with a choice of choosing a traditional plan-driven approach (or what is sometimes called β€œWaterfall”) or a more Agile approach for critical projects which can be a very important decision with significant business impact but there are many stereotypes and misconceptions that exist about both β€œAgile” and β€œWaterfall” that can be very confusing and misleading.  Many people see this as a binary and mutually-exclusive choice between two extremes and attempt to force-fit projects to one of these two approaches when the right solution is to go in the other direction and fit the approach to the project.

Since this is such a critical decision that has such a big impact, it’s very important to get past these stereotypes and misconceptions, develop a clear objective understanding of what it means (or doesn’t mean) when people talk about “Agile versus Waterfall”.
