We talked about predictive systems in last post. When we cannot use a predictive system, an adaptive one is a great replacement. Adaptive systems are those commonly called “Agile”.
This system is used when we have a result in mind, but we cannot be sure what kind of product can create it, and therefore “prediction” is not possible. This is the case when the market changes dramatically (think of IT), or it’s not possible to really understand the market or the client.
