Effective management of software projects will always be important regardless of the software development method (agile, iterative or waterfall) used. A recent movement in the software development industry towards adopting Agile practices have left many questioning the role of traditional project management. However, in practice companies often struggle with changing established practices. Many companies have adopted hybrid methods to adjust to changing requirements. For many of these companies these hybrid approaches are seen as the best of both worlds as they can leverage the advantages of Agile with the strengths of traditional practices. While researchers have begun proposing ways that these approaches can integrate there remains limited actual academic evidence that describes how these models are being integrated in practice. This research contributes to the knowledge by discussing findings based on a unique approach adopted by the IBM Center of Excellence called Agile with Discipline.
