What is the best methodology (Waterfall | Agile | Hybrid) to manage a project nowadays? and why?

Which methodology is better between Waterfall, Agile or Hybrid, my opinion is that there is no “one size fits all” approach to manage a project. In my experience, there are variables at play per project such as the industry, company or product objective that requires the Project Manager to find ... Continue Reading

What is the best methodology (Waterfall | Agile | Hybrid) to manage a project nowadays? and why?

The answer to this question lies in the cultural make up of the receiving organisation and the nature of the project(s) being delivered. There is no 'one size fits all' approach. Where unique cultural and project characteristics are ignored, the application of one methodology over another by project ‘purists’ can cause ... Continue Reading

Deliverable

A deliverable is a tangible or intangible unique and verifiable product, result, or capability to perform a service that is produced to complete a process, phase, or project internally or externally. Deliverables towards the end of a project life are typically referred to as external deliverables, and these typically require the review and/or approval of the customer.

For someone like me who is passionate about project management, my contributions were always to the closed network around me, PM magazine allowed me to go outside my comfort zone and share my thoughts with a larger audience and gave me the opportunity to express my opinion without any intervention or bias.

PM magazine is keen to get input from different backgrounds encouraging diversity and different opinions to be shared through its window to ensure adding value and sharing knowledge to the project management community.

Happy first anniversary PM Magazine, may you always be successful and be the voice of project managers for the project managers!

For a project to be successful it needs people. Engaged and motivated people who believe in the same thing and the same goals and who are prepared to solve all the problems that a project run into. To be prepared for the various problems that we will face in a project, resources like pmmagazine.net are an excellent source of knowledge and exchange of ideas. Thanks to the many articles created by project managers from different parts of the world and shared through the online magazine, we can learn more about the challenges and achievements that each faced and that can help us reach our goals on our own projects.

Thank you pmmagazine for giving us this wonderful tool.
