Agile vs. Waterfall Methodology

Agile vs. Waterfall Methodology

In this video, I will share the secrets to project management success and compare Agile vs. Waterfall Methodology!

Discover the game-changing world of Agile versus Waterfall Methodology, and why Agile takes the lead with 7 compelling reasons. 

What is Agile?

Agile is a dynamic, iterative approach to project management that emphasizes flexibility and collaboration.

It’s all about adapting to change and delivering value continuously.

What is Waterfall?

In contrast, Waterfall is a traditional linear approach, where each phase must be completed before moving on to the next.

We’ll explore why this may not always be the most effective method.

Agile vs. Waterfall Methodology

There are several factors to consider when you are choosing between Waterfall and Agile. 

Does your project require strict regulations or requirements?

Waterfall is better suited for projects with regulations or requirements because each phase’s deliverables and strict procedures ensure that they are met.

For instance, the Department of Defense and the aerospace industry are a couple of industries that would more likely use Waterfall over Agile, since the requirements are a safety factor.

Dr. Chris Mattmann, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, says that “agile methodology is used more for IT companies, that fail fast and move fast, types of places where you can proceed in parallel in different phases.”

When choosing between Agile and Waterfall, consider how involved the project owners or stakeholders will be in the project.

Agile is better suited for projects where stakeholders are closely involved every step of the way.

Waterfall is a more structured project management method and does not lend itself to the same type of flexibility.
