Presentation topic: Hybridization of Agile Environments and How BAs Fit.

This presentation will discuss the benefits, concerns, opportunities, and realities around the blending of Agile and Waterfall methodologies to drive business results.  For instance, many companies use a well-established Agile (Scrum and Kanban) processes to manage software development.  At the same time many of the business areas in those companies use traditional Waterfall methods to get their work completed.  In this talk she will address practical methods for blending the two.

Please note questions and issues you have seen so that the group can discuss and share possible solutions.

Attendees will learn:

  • Multiple ways to integrate Agile and Waterfall methodologies 
  • There are productive ways to deal with the methodology concerns, even from the "evangelists"
  • Realities of the modern, complex project world rarely allow for "one-size fits-all"
  • Agile and Waterfall can co-exist
