Allowing Change, Agile and Waterfall Projects in the Organisation

As the world enters into an unparalleled period of exponential change, most organisations are still using either Waterfall, Agile or Change Control as their primary project management methodology.

Enter Chagwa, a new process driven structure that allows a seamless interaction between our familiar project management methodologies. With its pragmatic set of rules and guidelines, Chagwa offers the PMO and project manager a clear way forward for every kind of project.

By selecting the most suitable methodology (including hybrid variants) Chagwa ensures that projects get off to a good start without the need for endless discussion or compromise. For example, Chagwa can integrate Agile into what may have been considered as a conventional project or program while still allowing an organization to keep its Waterfall and Change Control project methodologies where it makes sense to do so.

Chagwa is more than just a theoretical methodology. It is a complete set of templates and tools that integrate with the Chagwa processes allowing organisations to build out a new Project Management Organisation in an accelerated track without deviating from their proven tools and techniques.
