Face with delays due to a previous project exceeding schedule and budget. We broke out the higher payoff enhancements and merged those with the previous project to fund resources necessary to complete it. This consumed the available resources and budget as frequently happens with waterfall projects. It offered me the opportunity to explain how the Agile methodology avoids such occurrences. I’m pleased that the principle enhancements did get implemented and they are now adopting Agile.
