A Pilot Examination of an Improved Agile Hybrid Model in Managing Software Projects Success
Managing software projects successfully requires the use of effective and robust methodologies. The Agile Manifesto in 2001 introduced 4 values and 12 principles as a set of development and management criteria to provide a more suitable and effective way to design and use agile methods in software projects. The agile management methods have improvedthe success rates of software projects, but the increase is not significant. Agile hybrid management methodshave shown more promise when compared to pure agile methods with an overall increase of 16%. A review of the current hybrid models have identified some gaps to be addressed and improved for the hybrid approaches.This paper presents a pilot study analysis of an initial model development for an improved agile hybrid model with experts in the software industry.The findings support the model based on the questionnaire review and a pilottest analysis.
