Would this approach will work as an Agile development project?

0 votes

My pasts project were always traditional approaches, with predefined requirements and waterfall life cycles. Since I will present the PMP exam this month I am really into its procedures and guides, and now it is also focusing in Agile approach.

My question is, as I mentioned for the development phase I will use an agile approach, using iterations to develop the final product iteratively, do I need to use a framework, e.i. Scrum, or can I only use a "generic" iterative life cycle.

Does this make sense from an Agile perspective? What would you change? I know this sound as Scrum but I don't want to stick to this framework, to avoid doing the daily meetings, use a product owner, Scrum Master.

Based on my understanding of your description, I do feel you are heading in the right direction. Remember, Agile is a mindset (see the Agile Manifesto), that can be supported by incorporating frameworks (like Scrum). It does not mean you can't have an Agile mindset in a different framework or instill a hybrid approach. Like you mention, providing ample runway in digestible bite-size pieces can be helpful.

I would recommend reading through the Agile Practice Guide. It will provide a good connection b/t a more traditional to the more adaptive way of working. Which is key here, right? That we steer the ship toward a new paradise by positively challenging others to think about their work differently in a new WoW (way of working).
