Waterfall approach was first SDLC Model to be used widely in Software Engineering to ensure the project success. In The Waterfall approach the whole software development and divided into separate phases. In Waterfall typically, model, the outcome of one phase acts as the input for the next phase sequentially.
Following is a diagram representation of different phases of waterfall model.
Waterfall Model Application
Every software developed is different suitable of SDLC approach to be followed based on the internal and external factors.
• Technology is understood and is not dynamic
• Requirements are very well documented for clearing and fixing propose.
• Ample resources…
The authors of Risks of Rapid Application Development lead off their discussion with this salient point (Agarwal, Prasad, Tanniru, & Lynch, 2000). They argue that management should not force the change through the organization but rather build a cultural shift that is accepting of what the process is looking to accomplish (Agarwal, Prasad, Tanniru, & Lynch, 2000). Ensuring that their is top down support doesn’t guarantee success however, without the support of management the process will not…

ENMG 650-Project Management
Agile program management deals with managing a project which involves less number of members and has a cross functionality between the teams. It is focused on delivering the products iteratively. Iterative method is used in scenarios were the requirements of the project is not clearly defined by the user i.e. the user is not sure of the end product. This methodology gives the user a freedom to review the product constantly and make…
Agile Software development
The agile development method is a hybrid between the incremental and iterative development model. The Agile software development ideology constitutes many offshoot development models; these include Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum and Dynamic System development model (DSDM). These models vary in the finer details of how these practices are implemented and are named, however, the core values in all of the agile development models are the same. (Elbana and…
Measuring Agile Success
Agile methodology is an iterative approach typically used in software development as an alternative to the traditional project management. The approach emphasises on building the software incrementally from the beginning instead of delivering everything at the end, and solutions and requirements evolve sequentially. Product is broken down into incremental builds which are provided in iterations. Each iteration lasts typically almost one to three weeks, and requires cross…
Agile Software Development, 6 Advantages
Agile development is a strategy of software development in which the process occurs though short increments. The phases of the development process occur continuously in iterative cycles, involving a requirements phase, design and implementation, testing, and reporting. Stakeholders and designers meet after each increment to discuss what has occurred, re-evaluate requirements and determine priorities. This allows for greater transparency between clients…
The scrum framework is created Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber in the year 1993.The word ‘Scrum’ has been derived from a paper titled “The New Product Development Game” written by the thinkers Takeuchi and Nonaka.Scrum is often compared to the team of rugby due to the analogies of small teams working for a single objective.
Scrum is one of the most popular agile development methodologies and one of the easiest transitions from the waterfall approach, since it’s typically requirements-driven…
1.1 Agile working methods
Traditional working methods cannot handle the dynamical changes that digital transformation brings along. Agile working methods give the ability to be flexible in uncertain situations, which then brings a decisive competitive advantage. Agile is deeply rooted in software development. In 2001, an international community of seventeen developers formed twelve principles for agile work. The manifesto was written to uncover better ways of software development. There are four…
3 Project Management
Since ultimately, this project is concerned with the development of an application for real users, it is important that we follow a user-centred approach. Not only should such an approach involve users at the early stages of the project when requirements are gathered, but it should involve users during the design, development and the evaluation process as well.
User involvement is crucial as it gives them the opportunity to identify problems with the system…
interactions over processes and tools.
Working software over comprehensive documentation.
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
Responding to change over following a plan.”
(The Agile Alliance, 2001)
Agile focuses on below mentioned 12 principals
1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive…
