2 Basic Philosophy No matter the methodology (and there are many), the most important feature: methodology is iterative and incremental. Regardless whether use-cases, pair-programming, scrum-meetings, feature-driven development, design by test approach or others is used, an iterative approach will greatly assist in producing predictable results. Iterative development is characterized by small mini-projects (iterations) designed with a clear set of objectives producing a measurable executable (product) objectively assessed that incrementally advances a product of increasing business value. Lots of keywords in this. The objective of this approach is simply to maximize chances for project success. 02/08/10 2 Iterative Project Management / 01 - Iterative and Incremental

Mindset of Project Success Chaos” approach claims successful projects are finished on time, within budget, with all the features / functions present. BUT: Using these criteria, most projects still fail; with 16-24% succeeding; And 15-40% ‘challenged’, and 33-53% failed! Successful : completed on time within budget; contains intended features/functions. Challenged : project completed and operational but is over budget/time and has fewer features than originally intended Failed : project is cancelled before completion. 02/08/10
