Join us for this live webinar — Mixed Methodologies Pt II: Building successful outcomes — on Thursday, June 11 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern. Register here for free.

Last month, we held an exceptional webinar on the whys and wherefores of combining Agile and Waterfall development methodologies (if you missed it, you can catch the archived version here.)

Building on that, we’re going to get down into the weeds. How does a Hybrid approach actually work? What are the outcomes you can expect? What considerations do you need to take into account — and what do you need to avoid?

Certainly a lot of companies are already seeing the benefit of moving away from a religious attachment to one methodology over the other. In VB’s research into hybrid methodoliges (to be published shortly), about half of all respondents reported using a hybrid approach, and half of those started out strictly using one or the other. And it’s not limited to scrappy startups. Enterprise companies are also reporting a benefit in using a combo approach to development.

It may be a well-worn phrase, but we really have entered the ‘best of all worlds’ era. If you’re still adhering to a one-trick-pony, this webinar is definitely something to embrace. And if you’ve already adopted a Hybrid approach to dev, you may learn tricks of the trade you’re not utilizing to get the best outcomes.

The webinar will also cover how other implementations can be incorporated — such as Kanban, Scrum, sprints, and burn-down charts. We’ll explain, too, how you can integrate the public cloud and big data technologies a well as how to best approach important trends like the Internet of Things, microservices, and SaaS products.

What you’ll learn:

  • What works when mixing traditional app dev techniques
  • The Automate Agile principles while deploying new or existing apps
  • How cloud and big data can complicate the Agile scenario
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of bad development strategies
