Our Hybrid-agile Methodology
Complex IT projects require foresight and demonstrated organizational techniques. These projects can also face unexpected challenges that lead to misspent time, an increased budget or other losses that could have been averted with effective planning. To increase efficiency, project teams need solid plans that provide agility, or the ability to react quickly and effectively as a team, when solutions must be implemented. To consistently achieve success, T2 Tech Group™ uses a hybrid methodology that consists of a refined waterfall strategy and an Agile-based execution method. This strategy allows us to map out initial steps, such as time mining and forecasting, and it allows us to flexibly work with unexpected problems as we continuously communicate with our clients and partners.
Understanding PMI and Agile principles
It’s important to understand these two different methodologies, their key differences and how to take advantage of their benefits. Traditionally, the more formal PMI teaches procedure, governance, the ability to manage multiple dependencies, and how to control budget. It’s typically well suited for complex projects with larger teams and requires more upfront planning. It is often referred to as Waterfall because of its sequential, linear phased approach to better manage dependencies. This traditional approach also provides more detail and a higher level of documentation. An Agile project management approach has been adopted and utilized by the software development community where you shift more quickly to execution and spend less time planning. This allows companies to adapt to ever-changing business needs while providing an innovative framework. Agile typically has shorter upfront planning with continuous iterations, reflections and multiple deliveries. Regardless of the methods you have chosen to manage your project, there are three elements to be considered for every project: scope, timeline and resources (budget). Although we consider all three of these to be necessary elements, you must prioritize each.
