Agile-Waterfall Hybrid Template to Increase Efficiency
Agile/Scrum and Waterfall/V-model seem to be methods with really different fundamentals, but they are complementary for complex, n-tier architecture web-application developments. In most cases, hardware components are developed using a Waterfall/V-model, while software components can be managed with an Agile approach.
Waterfall/V-model works well in an environment with lots of predictable routine processes, while the Agile approach provides teams with the necessary flexibility and transparency to adapt to changing requirements faster.
Agile-Waterfall Hybrid seems to be a “smart approach” since it embraces the strengths of both methodologies. An Agile-Waterfall Hybrid model increases the efficiency and motivation by allowing all team members to continue to use their preferred development method.
The Agile Waterfall Hybrid Template of codeBeamer ALM has been developed to guide you in making the most of the combination of these methodologies.
The main features of our Agile-Waterfall Hybrid Template are:
- Derive tasks and requirements from user stories
- Requirements trackers for complete end-to-end traceability
- Agile Planning Board to create and manage release hierarchies
- Kanban Board for daily monitoring
- Test Management to define and re-use test cases, test sets and test runs
This Agile-Waterfall Hybrid Template is included in codeBeamer by default – to start your own Agile-Waterfall Hybrid project, simply download the latest version of codeBeamer, and use the predefined Agile-Waterfall Hybrid Template when creating a new project!
