Describe at least two different approaches to a formal SDLC. What;type of specific health care system would match well with each?;? Why is it important for an organization to have a formal SDLC?;Week Two Discussion Questions;? Why is defining the proper scope for a project so important? What;are the dangers a project can face if the scope is not tied down?;? Discuss the approaches used by at least two methodologies to cover;the scope, feasibility, and requirements generation portion of the SDLC. What;are some strengths and weaknesses of each approach?;? What are some effects of using a database or other hardware or;software resources for a project? How can a project best prepare to use outside;resources effectively?;Week Three Discussion Questions;?
