It includes activities with the client to decide how to go forward (or even if to go forward) to the next iteration and what the next iteration will contain. Chapter 23:The Iterative SDPM Strategy Summary There are considerable differences between the four models that fall in the Iterative SDPM category. In this chapter, I present those differences and discuss selection strategies. Part V: Adaptive ESPM In this part I present two software development project management approaches to those projects whose goal is clear but whose solution is not.

Scope changes approved in one increment may affect later increments, and that needs to be accounted for in the scope change management process. Chapter 15: The Incremental SDPM Closing Phase The Closing Phase within each increment is the handoff activity from one team to another. That handoff will require some documentation different than if it were a Linear model. Chapter 16: The Incremental SDPM Strategy Summary There are only three points of comparison and contrast here. The first deals with introducing interim releases at each increment as compared to one for the Linear model, the second with the scope change management process, and the third with the handoff between increments.
