Course overview

Ah, the 70s. The decade that gave us disco music, flares, and the Waterfall project management method. While it was formalized in the software industry, the Waterfall methodology builds on long-established principles from traditional industries like manufacturing and construction. It follows a sequential process: each project is divided into stages, and each stage must be completed before the next one can start

It relies on thorough planning from the start and extensive documentation at every stage of the process. Project managers are offered a clear system of working, in which team members and stakeholders can see progress easily. This means tracking and reporting are straightforward. This course will show your project management teams how they can use the Waterfall methodology to deliver project goals more efficiently.
