Agile and Traditional Methodologies: An Investigation In The Light Of Experience Based On a Multiple Case Study
Recently, relevant changes have made organizational boundaries more fluid and dynamic in response to the rapid pace of knowledge diffusion and innovation and international competition. This helps to reconsider how to succeed with informaiton technology (IT). The IT has moved beyond the implementation of IT applications to an age of IT-enabled change. The trend towards increasing use of IT continues and the challenge remains how to better manage IT projects in order to maximise their economic benefits. This paper presents a diagnostic use in traditional and agile software project management practices in Brazil. To be able to assess the use of such methodologies in the light of experience, multiple case studies were conducted in three Brazilian organizations, who claimed to manage their software projects adopting practices of both approaches. At the end of the survey, it was found that the project management software in Brazil is done by combining traditional and agile practices. The results were satisfactory, validating the present proposal.
