Hybrid Scheduling

Classic or agile? – Classic AND agile!

Request demo
Klassisch oder agil?  – Klassisch UND agil!

Organizations are working on increasingly complex projects, typically across multiple teams and disciplines. Just as the project components are different, so are the planning and working methods. Traditional, linear project planning is increasingly being challenged by agile working methods. The lack of integration and visibility into project relationships leads to errors and painful delays. 

Hybrid Scheduling combines agile practices, which emphasize flexibility and incremental delivery, with waterfall scheduling methods, which are often required for projects with clear requirements and strict timelines.  

The cplace Solution Template Hybrid Scheduling acts as a bridge between the classic and agile worlds. It enables the integration of the timeline of agile workloads with classically planned project schedules. 

Relationships and dependencies between project milestones and agile planned content can be easily linked and viewed at any time based on live data. All stakeholders continue to work in their familiar world without losing sight of the big picture. 

An early warning system detects schedule inconsistencies in planning and provides timely information about conflicts so that appropriate action can be taken to avoid costly or image-damaging risks to the project.
