Project Plan's approach to project (Traditional, Agile, Hybrid)
I am studying for PMP exam.
Is there a process to decide on an approach to a project (i.e, traditional, hybrid or Agile)? It seems this decision is an output of a process. ITTOs? And where would it be documented; in the project Charter?
The selection of the project management methods and techniques would be part of what the Guide to the PMBOK 6th Edition refers to as "Develop Project Management Plan".
An input to this process is, https://pm.stackexchange.com/a/33173/30 , the organizational process assets. These include policies and procedures that may influence the decision on what methods and techniques may or should be used. If the organization doesn't have policies or guidance, then there may be judgments made by the project manager(s) or data gathering efforts to determine what options are best in the circumstance.
The output of the project management plan and various subsidiary plans would capture the approach. The project life cycle and development approach are components of the project management plan. Other processes, such as those related to quality management and monitoring and controlling project work may influence the project management plan throughout the project.
