Guide and Best Practices

Waterfall project management maps out a project into distinct, sequential phases, with each new phase beginning only when the previous one has been completed. Waterfall project management works best for projects with long, detailed plans that require a single timeline

Phases of waterfall project management

  • Requirement gathering: Gather comprehensive information on what the project requires. Conduct interviews and have internal brainstorming sessions to determine exactly what your project scope should be.
  • System design: Establish all the specs of a project including programming language , hardware requirements and anything else that must be considered before any actual coding is done.
  • Implementation: Information from the previous phases are taken to build a functional product.
  • Testing: Once the build is complete, testing can begin. The product is put through a rigorous testing phase and if any serious issues are identified the project returns to phase 1.
  • Deployment: After a product has been tested it enters the delivery phase where it is used by end users.
  • Maintenance: After the product has been shipped, you need to set up a team to handle any issues that may arise
