Using Risk to Balance Agile and Plan-Driven Methods
June 2003 (vol. 36 no. 6)
pp. 57-66
Barry Boehm, University of Southern California
Richard Turner, George Washington University

Both agile and plan-driven approaches have situation-dependent shortcomings that, if not addressed, can lead to project failure. The challenge is to balance the two approaches to take advantage of their strengths in a given situation while compensating for their weaknesses.

The authors present a risk-based approach for structuring projects to incorporate both agile and plan-driven approaches in proportion to a project's needs.
