Agile has established itself as possibly the most effective set of management practices for organizations of all sizes to deliver high-quality, useful products on a much faster schedule. But although Agile allows business to be more responsive, flexible, and engaged, it is not the right fit for every project and every team. For many projects — especially those requiring high levels of governance and compliance, or those producing physical product — traditional gated methodologies such as Waterfall excel at bringing the required structure, repeatability, and predictability.
In this on-demand webinar, VentureBeat and Workfront explore:
- The benefits and drawbacks of Agile and Waterfall methodologies
- The pros and cons of a hybrid strategy
- How Agile and Waterfall teams can coexist
- How to determine which methodology to choose for your project and organization
