Agile project management becomes more and more important, but after the initial hype, its weaknesses and downsides become more obvious.
Companies have started to realize that it's not "the holy grail", that solves all project management related challenges and they're looking for individual solutions for their particular projects.
Companies and project managers are looking for a better integration of agile techniques into standardized company processes, like formal project approvals, or resource and portfolio planning. They also need a better balance of reliable mid to long-term plans without compromising too much flexibility to quickly react to changing market situations or customer requirements.
Hybrid agile projects (also known as "Scrumbut", "Waterscrum") have the potential to be that solution.
Hybrid agile projects try to combine the best agile and traditional project management elements to create a unique solution for today's projects.
Combining Waterfall and Scrum sounds easy, but can get really complex. Hybrid agile project management requires a solid understanding of agile and traditional project management to avoid confusion and absolute chaos.
It is much more than just combining two project management approaches, as different roles, events and ideas collide.
