Software Project Management: Evaluation of Agile Software Processes a Short Comparison with Waterfall Model

Worldwide software companies are increasingly adopting agile project management concepts, tools, and procedures. Despite the fact that agile software project management techniques appear to be a more flexible and sound alternative to traditional project management approaches, additional research into how to use agile project management is required. This article presents the findings of a study on the practical effects of applying agile project management in software project management.

Change is inevitable as an organization strives to become nimbler. It has an impact on old culture and introduces new project management methods; therefore not everyone will be convinced! What does it take to make that change a success? Since its inception in the 1990s in IT, agile project management has come a long way.

Many people are still skeptical of the concept, particularly if it involves a cultural shift or a change in the way things have traditionally been done you know where you are with tried and true methods, tools, and approaches.

This study explains the art of project management, project management phases, and short analysis on traditional project management methodology. The study further expresses the need for agile methodology, principles of agile methodology, its benefits and various frameworks in agile methodology.

Agile allows customers to double-check that the product is precisely what they expected by testing it frequently throughout the process. This also improves the project's chances of being finished on schedule and under budget. The customer is considered a member of the implementation team by Agile, and they are involved at every stage of the process. This paper analyses the art of project management, traditional methodology, agile development cycle, benefits of agile methodology, the agile frameworks, and methodologies.

Choosing the proper agile methodology from the several forms of agile methodology necessitates a dynamic approach. To entice talent and deliver outstanding digital experiences in this fiercely competitive industry, the advantages and downsides of agile methodology must always be weighed while choosing the framework for one's firm.

This research, which established the agile software development process, focused on the iterative approach and important features of agile methodology over Waterfall in software project management.

Problem statement: What method of organizing software development work to choose? Is one of the most difficult and timeless problems in project management. This is a discussion about development methods. The traditional technique in use is the Waterfall model; nevertheless, this paper explains why agile project management methods should be preferred over Waterfall in the modern software development business. Customers are less involved in the old process. As the project progresses, certain clients will want to be more involved. The Agile technique overcomes this gap in the client process. It ensures that the client is kept informed throughout the process. Customers get the ability to see the work in progress and make decisions and modifications as it progresses.

In a changing world, where clients value speed and agility, the agile revolution became necessary. This paper will discuss why Agile software development is preferable than the waterfall methodology.

Customers can no longer afford to be trapped into long IT projects that cannot be updated or adjusted using waterfall once they've started. Iterative approaches are widely used in software development projects with agile methodology to enhance velocity and adaptability since iteration allows you to alter as you go rather than following a linear path.
