Concept

Getting started with iterative project management

Iterative project management

Acute360's R&D iterative project management hierarchy is comprised of 4 building blocks based on the Scientific Method: 

1. Analysis/Objectives 
2. Tasks 
3. Activities/Iterations (Hypotheses & Experimentations)
4. Validation 

Acute360 provides an agile and consistent methodology for planning and conducting R&D projects and managing them the right way.

In traditional (Waterfall) project management, objectives, budget, time frames, tasks and activities are already well-defined, whereas in iterative project management very little of this is done.

In an iterative approach to resolve a problem, you are venturing into unknown territory and you must acknowledge that you will go through many iterations and rework before you get to the solution.

Validate or reject your hypothesis

Tasks are a decomposition of the project’s objectives into more manageable parts or requirements.

The goal of the Activity/Iteration is to propose an hypothesis to achieve the Task’s objective and to define a solution (experimentation) to validate or reject the hypothesis. It is against an Activity that the project's results are reported.

Through our iterative R&D project management platform, we want our customers to create value and innovation by doing R&D the right way. This means applying the Scientific Method by using 21st century management tools, capturing the acquired knowledge and thinking collaboratively.

Iterative

Acute360.com is an iterative project management platform that manages R&D projects and tasks based on the concepts of the Scientific Method, Knowledge Management and Thinking Collaboratively.

Knowledge

Acute360.com easily collects real-time technical and financial (labor, materials, subcontractors, etc.) data to measure an R&D team's efficiency and predict a project’s performance & success.
