039 Projects: Agile or Waterfall?

“Can we do this Agile, please?” “No, we can’t!”
Still, so many IT-coworkers are (t)asked to do this project agile, rather than “classic”. I believe, this is the wrong approach: Use the right tool for the problem.

Today’s Episode will define the criteria which leads to use waterfall or agile methods executing a project:

  • Complicated tasks shall be done using waterfall
  • Complex projects best are approached the agile way

To give a very short differentiation here: Landing on the moon was complicated. A child’s birthday is complex.

 

This Year’s LeadershipStars Program will have a focus point on those methods. Mail me, if you are interested!
