Project management categorization

There are currently two significantly different approaches to project management:

  1. Classic project management based on the PDCA principle
  2. Agile project management

In the first category, Gantt charts and resource plans are used. It is typical to collect and check the requirements as completely as possible before starting the project. There is a responsible project manager who works with interdisciplinary teams.

Agile project management, on the other hand, relies on flat hierarchies and "plan as you go" methods. Scrum, as the most important representative of this approach, is a process framework for agile project management. Scrum software is best suited for the development of products and applications. The agile project management software Allegra makes working with Scrum easy: with sprints, backlogs, epics and user stories, task boards, and burn down charts. Increase your team speed and continuously improve your process flows!

Project status reports

Use the many report templates in Allegra to create reports easily and quickly, e.g. Milestone trend analysis. This gives you a quick overview of where your projects are, how your employees and you are progressing, and where there are bottlenecks, budget overruns, or scheduling problems.

What does classic project management mean?

By "classic" project management or "traditional" project management we mean the management of projects that have to deliver a defined product on a certain date within a given budget. Thus, it is not possible to negotiate during the project what can be delivered on which date. Classic project management requires careful planning of expenses for the individual work steps or sub-products. This results in a large number of processes that need to be managed right from the start.

Waterfall in project management?

The so-called "waterfall model" best explains how classic project management works. It is often used in companies with a hierarchical organizational structure. Large projects are divided into several phases, which are carried out consistently in the specified order. Analogous to the PDCA cycle, elements of the traditional waterfall model include planning the project flow (project plan taking into account the requirements), executing (design, implementation, test), observing and finally ending the project (delivering).

What are the advantages and disadvantages of classic project management?

In classic project management, the focus is on high planning security. The project process is precisely defined in a plan at the start of the project, as is a fixed delivery date, dedicated resources, and contractually agreed costs. The orderly structure means that even large projects can be planned and carried out precisely. Classic project management is particularly interesting for projects that have very consistent requirements and do not require short-term correction loops. The main disadvantage of classic project management can already be seen here. It is unsuitable for projects with many unpredictable changes in requirements due to a lack of flexibility. There is a risk that errors will only be discovered and corrected at a later point in time, which is usually associated with high additional costs.

What is hybrid project management?

Hybrid project management is a combination of classic and agile project management. This pragmatic approach is mainly used in industries with high innovation pressure and short time-to-market sequences, such as the information and telecommunications technology market, as well as the automotive industry.

Hybrid project management aims at a more flexible handling of continuous change requests, a stronger orientation of the project results to the market needs, and a shortening of the implementation time of the project in comparison to classic project management.

For this purpose, agile methods are either integrated into a classic structure and process organization or introduced in sub-projects and provided with suitable interfaces. Then, for example, administrative areas such as marketing and business development are managed using traditional methods and software development using agile methods.

The structure of modern project management software must therefore be first-class Scrum software or Kanban software, as well as a classic project management tool.

Project management software agile and collaborative

Modern project organization is no longer a matter of lonely project managers. Especially when you look at agile software development, you can see how much the team's role deals with project management. This development is also penetrating into other areas of work, whereby in many cases, a mixture of agile and proven practices is seen as promising.

Thus, from the outset, modern project management software is also collaboration software. It must have the idea of ​​collaboration anchored in its DNA when helping you manage a project.
