While Agile project management is an effective process that has been proven to be very beneficial for certain types of projects, there are many projects to which Agile project management just does not apply.? For example, many new product development projects are too large and complex to execute without a carefully thought out plan, and within a sequence of short, fixed timeboxes.
One of the main reasons Agile has been effective is the use of iterative development â?? the end product is built up incrementally through a series of iterations.? But being iterative is not unique to Agile.? All of the new product development projects Iâ??ve managed, many two or more years in duration, were done iteratively.? Each had a detailed plan and, in all cases, the planning was essential.
The key element of the plan is the integration strategy which takes the low level deliverables in the WBS (Work? Breakdown Structure) and lays out an optimal sequence for development and integration.? In my experience, large projects with a detailed strategy are more successful and less stressful than those without.? Here weâ??ll look at what an integration strategy is, and how to go about creating one.
