Topic Description: Combining Waterfall and Agile: The Benefits of a Hybrid Project Management Approach

Multiple project management methodologies have been around for a while. Often times project managers are expected to use waterfall at the exclusion of agile and vice versa. Within the world of agile, there may be an expectation to choose one of Scrum, Kanban or other frameworks based on current trends. That said, one doesn’t have to choose. Often times the best solution is a hybrid project management approach that brings benefits from multiple methods. In this seminar, we’ll be discussing what hybrid project management means, why it’s important and a case study that demonstrates how it can be creatively applied to solve business problems.
