PMWJ article: Are incremental and iterative the same phenomenon or not?

Happy to see that the Project Management World Journal (PMWJ) published my article:

Portman, H. (2020).  Are incremental and iterative the same phenomenon or not? PM World Journal, Vol. IX, Issue IV, April.

During training classes I often notice that students mix the words iterative and incremental together. After reading this article I hope you understand the relationship between incremental and iterative development. I will start with a comparison of a waterfall and an agile approach by delivering a payment app. In the second part of this article, I position waterfall and agile in an incremental versus iterative matrix and shows what happens in the other two quadrants too. As a last step I elaborate on the minimum viable product (MVP) and the minimum marketable product (MMP) and shows where these fit in the different approaches and a story map.
