BABOK V-3 11.1 pg. 369 Agile Perspective: -A. Best Possible; Requirements are developed through continual exploration and analysis of the business needs. It is important to note that though most agile approaches are iterative, not all iterative approaches are agile. There are also several agile approaches that are not iterative, such as the kanban method. C. Possible: Pg. 374 There are also several agile approaches that are not iterative, such as the kanban method. KANBAN means: Does not require fixed iterations. Work moves through the development process as a continuous flow of activity. A key feature is to limit the amount of work underway at any one time (referred to as the work in progress limit or WIP). The team works only on a fixed number of items at any one time and work may begin on a new item only when it is required to maintain flow downstream and after the previous item has been completed. D. Very generic answer, proven means identically done before; tailored means customized these are contradictory, so NO; B.Waterfall not mentioned in BABOK v-3, so NO;

Selected Answer: A
Agile and Iterative approach is correct. As per BABOK v3, agile principles and practices are often successfully applied in initiatives where: • there is a clear commitment from the customer and engagement by empowered subject matter experts (SMEs), • the business need or proposed solution is complex or complicated, and • business needs are changing or unknown and are still emerging. In this scenario, the project is complex because it requires implementation in various countries at the same time and involves a complex domain of cyber security. Secondly, the business needs may still be unknown and will emerge with time after implementation. Given these facts, agile approach works best.

Answer A is correct. The keys words are "size and complexity". Best to manage a project with Agile and iteration for complex project. Not B: waterfall is not a dynamic approach Not C: kanban is not a predictive approach

Going with C, because waterfall is given with dynamic approach which is not true.

I would go with B waterfall (predictive) approach. Because this is a Cyber security release and it has to go live on the same day, cannot take risk and cannot use iterative approach. Any other thoughts?
