Our programme delivery methodology is designed to best fit with your own - which could be agile, waterfall or, most likely, a hybrid of both. Waterfall provides clarity and governance, whilst agile allows your business to see incrementally what you are getting – plus is quick to pivot when change is needed.

Coming into your business, we will first understand your ways of working and assess the maturity of your current programme management, to establish the most appropriate programme delivery methodology for you. We will ensure this is fully aligned with your business delivery priorities.

Coming into your business, we will first understand your ways of working and assess the maturity of your current program management, to establish the most appropriate program delivery methodology for you. We will ensure this is fully aligned with your business delivery priorities. Here is a summary of the different options

 

Waterfall Approach

 

Waterfall development methodology is a stepped traditional software development approach that has a prescribed set of logical activities and their dependencies, where each step must be approved by the project stakeholders before the process can move to the next step.

The Waterfall development process generally covers these steps- gather and document all requirements initially, design and development, testing, and finally deployment/delivery.

 

Agile Approach

 

The Agile development methodology takes a collaborative approach to software development where requirements and solutions evolve through iterations. Agile software development relies on self-organizing, cross-functional teams discovering and building a solution using an iterative process to discover and build the solution, as opposed to the traditional Waterfall method that defines and plans the entire project before any development work begins

 

The Agile process generally includes establishing a few initial requirements - starting with the design, develop, test, and deploy. The process allows detailed evaluations from micro-outcomes cycles, while collecting feedback on interim findings before moving forward

 

Summary

 

if the organisation has strict processes that they have to adhere or the project has strict regulatory requirements or budget constraints then the Waterfall approach will offer a more predictable outcome

If an organisation needs to get the project delivered in a short amount of time, Agile approach is the appropriate where actions and deliverables are more important than documentation and process.

The Hybrid Approach Development Methodology

 

In a number of situations, it is common for teams to use some combination of both Waterfall and Agile development methodologies in order to deliver a solution in a way that optimizes the team’s time and resources. About 20% of the projects completed have used a hybrid approach to managing development. 

The hybrid model could be deployed where the project phases follow a Waterfall approach to get to an approved design. Then the Agile methodology is used during the development phase, testing and integration.
