Agile vs. Waterfall – how to choose the right approach?

Agile and Waterfall are the most popular project management approaches. We have all heard of them. Are they opposite? Can we combine them in a hybrid approach? How to choose the right one for our projects? These are part of the questions you will be able to answer after completing this training.

This training will cover a practical approach for assessing a project environment to choose the right project management approach. You will be given tips, sidebars, and case studies to better understand the key points and concepts for both approaches.

This training is especially designed for online delivery. Different tools and activities will be used in order to keep participants engaged and energized during the entire training.

Teodora has been in the software industry for 15 years – she started as a developer and went through almost all roles involved in software project implementation. As a project manager, Teodora has successfully applied both Agile and Waterfall methodologies.

In her workshops Teodora uses an interactive approach for learning by doing. Apart from just sharing knowledge and going through pre-defined examples, she always engages the participants in activities with scenarios from their real-life experience. Applying the acquired knowledge and skills to known situations and scenarios during the workshop has proven to be a very effective way for deeper understanding and stronger engagement with the topics. This also leads to participants feeling more confident and being more effective in applying the knowledge and skills back at their workplace.

Teodora is a certified PMP®, PMI-ACP® and PSM®.


About the Course
