In business, technology is a means to an end, and using it effectively to achieve that end requires planning and strategy.

The Capability Maturity Model, designed for assessing the formality of a software development process, was initially described back in 1989.

Both have pros and cons as agile methodologies, and one is often suited to a certain project better than the other. Let’s explore the definitions, differences, and how to utilize them practically for your next development project.

Requirements can be added and clients or internal stakeholders can change their minds at any given time throughout the life of the project.
