Are you familiar with Waterfall Methodology?
What is your experience with this methodology?
Waterfall methodology is a linear project management approach, where stakeholder and customer requirements are gathered at the beginning of the project, and then a sequential project plan is created to accommodate those requirements. The waterfall method is so named because each phase of the project cascades into the next, following steadily down like a waterfall.
It’s a thorough, structured methodology and one that’s been around for a long time, because it works. Some of the industries that regularly use the waterfall method include construction, IT and software development. However, the term “waterfall” is usually used in a software context.
Gantt charts are the preferred tool for project managers working in waterfall. Using a Gantt chart allows you to map subtasks, dependencies and each phase of the project as it moves through the project life cycle. ProjectManager.com’s [removed] offers these features and more.
