Iterative project management was developed to address those SDLC projects that, because of their special characteristics and considerations, were not considered to be good candidates for other project methodologies such as Agile or Waterfall. In many ways, Iterative is an attempt to take the best of both of those methodologies and create an effective approach to software development projects where risk considerations are significant or even primary. Like Waterfall, Iterative uses terms that are already familiar to most practitioners but, in the particular context of this method, take on special, and sometimes confusing, meanings. Like Agile, Iterative uses "time-boxing" to divide development work into smaller iterations, but with different considerations from Agile for selecting iteration length and scope.
When properly implemented, the Iterative project methodology provides teams with a powerful management technique. The "Iterative Project Management for SDLC Professionals" course not only introduces students to the particular tools of this methodology, but also continually stresses the underlying principles of Iterative management that will help them properly adapt these tools to the specifics of their own organizations.
