19:30 "Robust Hybrid rather than Agile or Waterfall – why there is finally no alternative"  by Rainer Wendt

For years there has been a trench warfare between the agile advocates and the traditionalists about which way is better, faster and cheaper - Agile or Waterfall. Introducing Agile in parallel with existing Waterfall processes is a great challenge for many companies. When Macro Management meets Micro Management, processes need to be reviewed and adapted, requiring sensitivity and cooperation. Rainer Wendt will provide useful insights from his experience introducing agile practises in a Waterfall environment, following a practical and feasible hybrid approach where the benefits of Agile can still be realized. You will learn

·         Why projects must not be categorized into Agile and Waterfall, robust Hybrid projects will make it

·         Where PMO and Program Management need to be patient with Agile people

·         What agile Teams need to consider when communicating with and reporting to Waterfall people
