    Two-speed IT accurately reflects the opposing ends of project management.  In some circumstances, a waterfall approach is appropriate while other scenarios require an agile approach.  The point is that they do not have to be on opposing teams, but they can coexist in the same company or project.  However, for the team's sake, choose one approach to implement the tasks.  Otherwise, it will be too confusing for the team members.

    Good point DiamondDebbie about settling on one approach for executing tasks -- this was one of the reasons PayPal moved 500 cross-functional teams to an Agile methodology. The company found that with some teams using Agile and others using the Waterfall approach, it was difficult to coordinate timetables on projects.

    Not sure if CIO Kirsten Wolberg maintains a Waterfall approach for certain projects.
