1. What is one of the primary difficulties with trying to implement a hybrid project management approach combining traditional and Agile/Scrum?
Schedule is managed differently. It is fixed with Agile/Scrum but is unpredictable with traditional.
Resources are managed differently. Resources are fixed with traditional and flexible with Agile/Scrum.
Scope is managed differently in the two methods. It is fixed with traditional and flexible with Agile/Scrum.
2. What is one of the difficulties an organization faces when only doing a partial implementation of Agile/Scrum?
A partial implementation is not a difficulty. It is better for the organization to only implement a small portion of Agile/Scrum at a time and wait until they are comfortable with that before implementing more.
The organization is confused about roles, responsibilities, and procedures.
Projects may be delayed or overrun.
3. Is it a sign of a successful implementation of Agile/Scrum or a failed implementation when an organization requires a precise estimate of scope, schedule and resources for the project at the time of project approval and then uses those to track project success?
Success – the precise estimates are used to initialize the Scrum Board and Burn-down Chart used by the Scrum Team.
This does not indicate success or failure for Agile/Scrum since both traditional and Agile/Scrum require precise estimates at project approval which are used for tracking project success.
Failed – Agile/Scrum has a general vision or objective at project approval but scope is flexible and precise estimates do not exist.
