Hybrid Agile: Best Practices for Building Complex Software (eBook)

Complex software projects with significant uncertainty are best delivered using agile methodologies, yet many organisations continue to end up with the waterfall-style delivery process, driven by traditional fixed-price contracts. Why?

The waterfall approach places an emphasis on detailed requirements gathering and documentation. It tries to anticipate everything the software will need to do months or years from now. It’s rarely successful for complex software because it’s rare that anyone gets the requirements 100% right—business needs also change and evolve after the requirements spec is developed.

Agile processes allow feedback from stakeholders and customers at the time a feature is being built, to make sure it meets the actual need. Almost all successful software projects are built using this approach. However, there’s a perception that agile means “open-ended budgets and time frames”, so organisations are understandably wary.

With this in mind, we have developed a hybrid agile approach to give clients the speed and flexibility of agile, while still working within managed budgets and time frames.
