Workshop Synopsis (Abstract)
Hybrid project management is getting more and more attention. Hybrid project management is a technique where high-level project phases are planned using the waterfall approach and project phase work (actual tasks) execution is done the Agile way. It is rather easy to draw conclusions that some of the above-mentioned challenges can be “cured” by combining Agile and Waterfall into one.
The result of the combination is also logical. But achieving that combo is not easy or trivial, hence certain conventions must be established. This takes the flexibility and adaptability of Agile and combines it with the more traditional and rigid approach of Waterfall project management (where tasks are listed in sequential order much like a waterfall). In some ways, yes. However, the benefit of blended project management is that it allows you to get the best of various methodologies. This enables project managers to leverage the strength of their chosen approaches, while also navigating around their weaknesses or potential pitfalls.
In the traditional sense of hybrid project management (meaning, combining Agile with Waterfall project management), projects are planned using the Waterfall approach and a work breakdown structure (WBS). This gives teams a sense of the tasks involved and the overall scope of the project.
However, projects are executed using an Agile method, which leaves enough wiggle room to handle changes and reevaluate after short sprints/iterations. Additionally, hybrid project management is a great way to dip your toe into new approaches. While more and more teams have adapted Agile methodologies (an impressive 71% of organizations have done so), it’s not always intuitive. This hybrid approach is a great way for them to boost their comfort level because it is not such a drastic shift.
While hybrid project management allows you to use the best parts of your chosen project management methodologies, this isn’t without its challenges. Planning a project under two separate methodologies can be tricky, as both approaches may have differing timelines that you will need to do more in-depth planning to ensure all your bases are covered. This sharing session addresses the good practices of hybrid project management and learn how to deal with the challenges to enable project success.
