USING HYBRID SCRUM TO MEET WATERFALL PROCESS DELIVERABLES
System Development Life Cycles (SDLCs) for organizations are often based upon traditional software development models such as the waterfall model. These processes are complex, heavy in documentation deliverables, and are rigid and less flexible than other methods being used in modern software development. Consider by contrast, agile methods for software development. In essence, agile methods recommend lightweight documentation and simplified process. The focus shifts to completed software as the "measure of success" for delivery of product in software projects, versus accurate and comprehensive documentation, and the accomplishment of static milestones in a work breakdown structure. This thesis implements, explores, and recommends a hybrid agile approach to Scrum in order to satisfy the rigid, document-laden deliverables of a waterfall-based SDLC process. This hybrid Scrum is a balance of having enough documentation and process - but not too much - to meet SDLC deliverables, while at the same time focusing on timely product delivery and customer interactions that come from an agile approach to software development.
