The Multi-Methodology Toolkit: Supporting Communication Between Agile and Waterfall

Companies succeed when they choose the right tool for the job, and that tool will change with a project’s requirements. At one time or another, most businesses will encounter both Agile and Waterfall methodologies, and a large number will create custom blends of the two. The most productive businesses will bridge the gaps fluidly and provide communication across barriers.

In our previous webinar, we highlighted the benefits of various development methodologies and the ways in which businesses might approach a blended enterprise. This webinar examines the tools and processes necessary to wrap collaboration, accountability, and data around all stages of the project lifecycle, from planning to development to deployment and post-mortem analysis.
