Project models

Forecast is very flexible, and can easily be set up to fit the needs of your business. The system is made to work with different project models, incl. agile and waterfall. You can easily choose, which approach each project will run through, and which parts of the system you desire to use. That means you can plan, run and get insights of your whole project within the system, or choose to only do the planning in Forecast.

Forecast has a number of project models that a project can be based on. A project must always have a chosen model and these are described below.

Agile (scrum)

Agile is the incremental approach. An initial plan is planned out, put into a backlog, prioritized, and then gradually implemented through sprints of a specific period of time.
The agile model thereby adds an extra degree of work, in the form of user stories. An infinite number of user stories can be added, which makes agile an on-going project. The agile project does not necessarily have a deadline / end date, unless it is stopped, or naturally dies out through the lack of new user stories to be implemented.

Moreover, agile can go through the stages of design, implementation and test several times through the running project.

The agile project is the ideal choice, if the project requirements are prone to change over time, e.g. through new technological innovation, or new feature requests from users.
Furthermore, the turnover from clients is naturally taken into account.

There are different types of agile, the most popular being scrum.
Read more about scrum in our beginners guide to scrum.

Waterfall

Waterfall is the sequential, and traditional approach. The project is initiated, and then partly carried out. The project is thereby an one-way process. What is initially planned out, is the plan through out the project, until delivery.

It follows a natural process through the example stages of analysis, planning, design, implementation, test, and deployment, and never flows backwards.

For a more in-depth description of the Waterfall-approach, read more in our guide here.

None

If you desire to do so, it is possible to only do the planning stage of your project in Forecast. This means that you will not go through the running process within the Forecast PPM system.
