Rolling wave planning mean it elaboration of near term activities in details , it is more focused on work items, where as progressive elaboration is for all aspects of project management plan (scope, risk etc). These two terms many time used interchangeability , progressive elaboration is bigger term which includes rolling wave planning.



Rolling Wave Planning. An iterative planning technique in which the work to be accomplished in the near term
is planned in detail, while the work in the future is planned at a higher level.

Progressive Elaboration. The iterative process of increasing the level of detail in a project management plan as
greater amounts of information and more accurate estimates become available.
