Chapter 5Analytics—the Agile Way

Analytic teams have a lot of different project delivery methods to choose from, each with their own pros and cons. If the analytic team is using a delivery methodology, most often it's the standard waterfall delivery model, where work falls in a phased, sequential approach. However, due to the ambiguous nature of analytic projects, agile methods provide analytic teams with much-needed structure and delivery discipline, while respecting the creative and iterative nature of analytic projects. Navigating the agile family of methodologies can be confusing for any team.
