Program Description: 

In this session, the speaker presents his hypothesis that in the future, projects will use a combination of agile practices, with a traditional approach, usually associated with waterfall projects. This should become the dominant successful methodology, even despite the pressure for quick deliveries and the unstoppable growth of agile philosophy. The session lays out specific recommendations on how to blend agile and waterfall approaches in aspects such as scope, schedule, communication, teams, and others. The main aim of the hybrid methodology is to enable teams to define requirements and adapt to changing requirements through continuous feedback and delivery. The hybrid method retains the clarity and tracking system of waterfall method, while embracing the adaptability and flexibility of agile. The session will conclude with a Case study of how a US Federal Agency used Hybrid Methodology for a successful Implementation.
