Which Life Cycle Is Best for Your Project?

http://www.executivebrief.com |  Development, Agile, incremental

When choosing a development life cycle, don't just trust your feelings. Decide based on factors that really matter.

Which life cycle will work best for your project? This is an important strategic question because making the wrong choice could lead to disastrous results of catastrophic proportions. Think about delayed deliveries, unhappy clients, project overruns, and canceled projects.

During the 80’s and early 90’s, the waterfall model was the de-facto in project delivery. With the rapid pace in software development and popular use of the Internet, many companies started shifting to more flexible life cycles such as the iterative, incremental, spiral, and agile. These new life cycle methods provide more flexibility and support fast-paced development, giving companies the edge in delivering “the first” in the industry. To date, there are dozens of life cycle methods available to choose from, each having its own advantages and disadvantages.

Some of the most popular life cycles are examined in the article Which Life Cycle Is Best for Your Project? from ExecutiveBrief Magazine at : www.executivebrief.com/print/which-life-cycle-is-best-for-your-project.
