Abstract Feedback

Text Clarity; need some clarification, check comments below.

Language; Ok.

References; missing references related to the standards.

As it is indicated in the abstract, Waterfall is a sequential model but also is a process whereas Lean Project Management is a management style.

If you go for comparing processes compare waterfall vs. "pull processes" that are the ones common in Lean approach.

If you go for comparing management styles, check in which type of management styles are most common the waterfall model.

When developing the article don't forget to elaborate and describe the relevance for a Project Manager from both perspectives whenever you go for the processes aspects or the management styles.
