The Agile Sure Step Project Type: New Options for Implementing Microsoft Dynamics
For ages, consultants have delivered ERP projects in waterfall fashion, and to be honest, they didn't fare too well as far as project success was concerned. Budget overruns, missed schedules, scope creep or scope reductions - these have been more of a norm than an exception. And even though agile methodologies were gaining momentum, and getting accolades, the ERP world still preferred the thunder of the big-bang waterfall approach.
In its latest release, by offering support for the agile project type, Sure Step has made a giant leap into the realm of agile project methodologies. While Sure Step does not yet fulfill all the ideals of agile methodology, many of the building blocks are now in place to bring positive change to many Dynamics ERP projects.
Agile approach is radically different from the waterfall approach.
