Project Management’s ‘Odd Pair’ Waterfall and Agile: Do You Really Need Both?

Thursday, September 29, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST


“We need to churn these product outs quickly.” “Speed-to-market is what we’re focused on.” “We plan on undergoing Agile Transformation.” Have you heard any of these phrases? According to Gartner, 45% of product launches are delayed, an average of 20% fail to meet internal targets—and often, the culprits can be found in how a packaging project is managed.

This presentation will explore the difference between waterfall and agile, two commonly used project management methodologies, why it is important for your projects and incorporating a hybrid approach for tackling your project launches.

What you will learn:
The differences between the waterfall and agile methodologies.
Advantages and disadvantages of both methods.
Effective strategies for a hybrid approach.
Tools and systems for tracking project success.
