Water Wheels: SCRUM Applied to Waterfall Teams
.... using Waterfall to provide power to Agile teams
In organizations today, it is no longer enough to be Waterfall or Agile.

These methodologies are not mutually exclusive. Waterfall projects and programs can incorporate focused Agile SCRUM teams to deliver specific targeted results aligned with broader projects. Come hear how these “watermills” develop at the boundary of enterprise Waterfall projects and Agile SCRUM teams to deliver focused results.
