Selecting a Project Model
WorkingMouse embraces agile development. A part of this methodology is deciding whether project scope and project time are fixed, or flexible. Choosing the correct project model informs the time and
material required to complete the project.
If time is flexible, and the scope is fixed, the number of weeks to hire a Pod or Squad varies. Predicting the exact length of time becomes more uncertain. Models of uncertainty and time, like the Cone of Uncertainty, quantify the size of uncertainty at different points of development.
If scope is flexible, and time is fixed, then Pods and Squads deliver the highest value work items within the available fixed time.
