Piece-by-Piece and Practice Makes Perfect: Managing Iterative and Incremental Development

This workshop explores the importance and application of incremental and iterative approaches in software development. The distinction between iterative and incremental development is often overlooked, leading to confusion and inefficient or ineffective development. Often, teams are unsure as to which approach they are implementing leading to misaligned management. More importantly, because teams are unsure of the two approaches, they are ill-equipped to choose the one that’s best for the project and implications of their choice are poorly understood. Most development efforts need both. Success depends on finding the right combination and providing the right management support. This session will give you tools to find find and support the combination best suited to your development work.

Attendants will walk away with answers to the following questions:
  • What distinguishes iterative and incremental approaches?
  • How do the two approaches work together?
  • When does each apply?
  • What are the implications for product management?
