Integrating Agile and Waterfall Practices
This online course is designed to help Agile proponents recognize and resolve many of the common integration issues that emerge when these two methodologies are combined.
The course consists of 20 short case studies that simulate the communication and interchanges that can occur as Agile and Waterfall practitioners work to resolve differences in the ways that they see and execute tasks. As students evaluate these case studies, they'll learn to deconstruct and diagnose any underlying problems that need to be resolved, just as they would in everyday practice. While they work to decode and correct these issues, they'll begin to recognize the common pitfalls that can happen as project teams collaborate and interact, which will allow them to step in to solve potential problems before work is affected.
