Describe the differences between linear and adaptive project management methodologies and discuss their relative merits. Differences between Linear and Adaptive project Management: 1. The goal of the traditional project management is getting the job done with in the time and resources constraints. On the other hand, the adaptive project management may have multiple solutions for multiple criteria and results may also be varied. 2. In the traditional project management, the plan is to achieve the triple constraints through the series of activities directed in that direction only. In the adaptive project management, it is only expected that the management would deliver the desired goals only by any means. 3. In the traditional project management, the planning is done at the initial stage and is quite rigid and often do not change. On the other hand, the planning in the adaptive management is changed when ever the need is understood. 4. The approach of the managers is very rigid and is fixed to the original plan. On the other hand, the adaptive project management is very flexible and can be changed or can be adapted to the demanding situation. 5. In case of the traditional project management, the project work is quite simple, fixed, certain and linear in nature. On the other hand, the work in non – linear, complex and un – predictable in the case of adaptive project management. 6. The impact of the traditional project management is very less and generally there is no relation after the project is initiated. In adaptive project management, the impact of the project is throughout the life of the project. 7. In case of the traditional project management, the control mechanism is in place and it helps in recording the deviations and attempts are made to correct the deviations and put them back on the track. In case of the adaptive project management, it is not the corrective actions that are taken but the changes are made in the plan it self according to the results so obtained. 8.
