For years, Project Management experts have been divided following the Agile or the Waterfall methodology. Proponents from each generally praise their chosen methodology’s advantages but all too often neglect to mention the shortfalls.
At Optimum.consulting, we acknowledge that both methodologies have their strengths and weaknesses. As a result, we adopted a hybrid model to provide clients with the very best of both worlds. In addition, we work closely with clients to ensure that they are confident in taking ownership. We do so by encouraging participation from the start and throughout the entire implementation.
Combined with thorough testing and continual data migration cycles, we provide clients with the best possible solution for their business using the quickest and most cost-effective methods.
