Agile Projects Are More Successful Than Hybrid Projects

Where hybrid projects fall short—and why

With the growing importance of software development activities in business, you need to choose the right development methodology for your organization’s needs. But which works best in the enterprise: a pure agile approach, pure waterfall, or a combination of the two?

YouGov interviewed 403 development and IT professionals in mid-sized and large enterprises to get some answers about how their projects fared. The results show extensive agile adoption, with hybrid a close second.

But while agile teams viewed the journey and the outcome of projects positively, hybrid teams fared the poorly on six key success metrics:

  • Quality and performance
  • Time to market
  • Speed of delivery
  • Scope
  • Security
  • Cost and use of resources

In attempting to straddle two very different areas—agile and waterfall—teams appeared to get the worst of both worlds, calling into question the utility of using this approach.
