Agile with waterfall creates better value.
Most traditional project tools are either task-list waterfall models or task card agile models. They aren’t made for real full projects that combine waterfall with agile or what Forrester calls “scrum-water-fall”. This requires teams to use different tools. Now, you can do it in one tool — Pie!
Pie is the first tool to simply combine both agile with waterfall in the same project. This gives you the power to drive process steps for project phases that have known best practices while giving other phases the flexibility of agile for scrums, sprints, and continuous deployment.
In both cases, Pie engages your teams to predefine your agile and waterfall processes as recipes for repeatable type projects. Great for process improvement.
